Tell them Captain Fantastic sent you. Seriously that was our captain and he was just that fantastic. It was a great time with the kids and totally worth the money.

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

This was a very fun experience!! We arrived and very quickly boarded our airboat with Captain Mike for our 1 hour excursion. He explained so much about the Everglades and all the animals we saw along the way. We saw quite a few alligators and when we finally found one in open water he circled around many times so we...

Airboat rides are pretty well scripted and last about 40 minutes. Didn't see many gators, but it was interesting nonetheless.

The family started with an air boat ride for an hour and we were amazed. The captain of the boat gave a great tour. We enjoyed the alligator's that the captain located and many other species from the everglades.Then after the boat ride you could get up close and personal with the alligator's at the gator boy show. Would highly... More

Friends were down from MN and the son wanted to go see the "Gator Boys." We met our friends there and the fun began. Purchased our tickets and before we knew it we were called up to board our boat. Our guide was fantastic and the ride a memorable one. Got back in time for the gator show and Paul... More

We had a really good time. Got our tickets, wandered around, our number was called and we boarded our airboat. There are A LOT of people moving very quickly through here. Our Captain was funny, informative and treated the kids well. I didn't approve of feeding the birds as he did but I was the only one who seemed to... More
