My husband and I visited this park since we were in the Fort Lauderdale area. They have a very large park and we took the tour on the airboat. We say different species of birds and of course, alligators. The tour guide on the boat made the hour long ride interesting and fun. The airboats fit quite a few people... More

Boat ride was nice touch and informative, just no luck on actually seeing alligators in there home. Would have made this trip worth the ride and time. Maybe not on our day.

It took an hour to go around the park and we got to see so many animals and learn so much. The driver we had was new but she was great! Definitely recommended!

Had a great time on the airboat ride. Saw a few Gators and the guide was very informative of the area. Enjoyed the gator show. My husband held a boa snake. We ate some gator tail. It was good but not a very large portion. The park is a fun place for all ages and only takes a few hours... More

We took their 1hr airboat ride followed by the gator show. The airboat ride is informative and our tour guide, Kathy(?), was super cool and funny. All of us, including my 8 year old son, enjoyed her company. The tours start at a good frequency (one every 15 mins), so, there is no wait time. Also, the boats are not... More

We came here with our nephew, who had never been on an air boat. Once we had our tickets, we were instructed to line up for our number to be called. Before boarding, our free (yes, it really was free!) photo was taken. There were about 20 passengers on our boat and we headed out very slowly from the dock... More

We always bring out of town guests to the Everglades Holiday Park because the staff is always so friendly and knowledgeable. On our most recent tour we had Captain Rick as our tour guide and he couldn't have been more accommodating and knowledgeable about the everglades. He not only found four alligators on the tour he seems to understand and... More
