Drove out to the park with high expectations since it is run by the Gator Boys. Easy to get tickets there or on line. Boats don't make it easy for everyone to see since they are so wide that those in the middle would miss things if full. Fortunately our boat wasn't full. The weather was cool so we didn't... More

The air boats, guide, and our tour photo were very nice. For an engineer the air boats had a combined(two engines) 800 horsepower. They used the power effectively. It was not overbearing. On the side seat, once i was about 4 feet from an alligator, in the wild(see photo). Many stops for nature photos. Also for an Engineer, the Everglades... More

The queue line moves quickly, as there are many Airboats. Our guide was very informative and gave us past and current history of the Everglades. We were... More

We tried an airboat ride and gator wrestling show package given the weather has been so wonderful in Florida. The airboat ride seemed a bit abbreviated as though they wanted to get more boats on the water given the crowd size. There were a few interesting stops however to see gators and other wildlife. For the speed demons, there was... More

This was my boyfriend's first Everglades experience which he enjoyed. It was a fun boat ride but I was a little disappointed that we only saw two alligators and the park was very crowded... I know it was due to the time of year (Christmas week) I should have known better. Also the boat was not an open-aired traditional style... More

Nice spot to watch the sun go down. Air boat rides are nice, the alligator show is always educational . If you like animals you will enjoy... More

we spent the day in the everglades and after reading the reviews of this park we drove out from Fort Lauderdale to check it out , It is by far the most well advertised park and so is the most well known and is the park that most ticket booths / ticket sellers seem to sell tours to For that...
