That's right, most episodes are filmed right here in our world-famous Everglades park filled with Alligators! Everglades Holiday Park is known the world over as the best attraction in South Florida for experiencing the thrill of an exhilarating ride through this natural wonderland. Our safe airboat excursions will take you out into the open Everglades where we fly over the sea of grass, the sawgrass river. Then we stop at strategic spots to allow our guests (like you) to quietly observe the amazing alligators and other wildlife here in this pristine setting. « less

we were lucky to see two aligators, lots of birds and frogs in the water - one of the other boats didn't see any aligators at all- but that is what can happen with nature - nice people and reasonably priced

This was a last minute outing as our previous plans changed, our daughters boyfriend suggested it and I will be the first to say I never thought I would ever get on one of those air boats in the everglades with gators and snakes but I did and I loved it! Our Captain was Chris, very knowledgeable about the wildlife... More

My husband and I took our 8 year old daughter here a couple of weeks ago while visiting family in Ft. Lauderdale and we all had a great time! Our Captain (I couldn't figure out if he was saying Kurt or Kirk) was a really nice guy and shared lots of facts/history/etc. with us about the alligators and the Everglades.... More

What an amazing adventure. Everyone had a blast. Much more than I expected. It was not as buggy as I expected. Even though it rained it was not a problem since the boats are covered. Rich our guide stopped and explained things and really helped make it a great adventure. We only saw one gator in the wild but Bonus... More

Great fun and very informative, The Gator Boy show was very entertaining. I learned alot about the gators. The ride in the everglades was very nice but a little long. We managed to see some nature but not alot. However the captain of the boat was very very good. Captain Bob I believe.

My son loves the Gator Boys so we planned a visit here after our Jamaica vacation. Holiday Park is affordable and fun for the entire family. The airboat tours are about an hour long. The tour guide did a wonderful job pointing out various things in nature including plants and animals. We even saw three gators in the wild. After... More

Just left - we were really disappointed. Although they promise an hour of tour boat it was less than half an hour, it was raining the roof was leaking and the driver stooped the boat saying that he can't see anything. We got socked wet we simply sat under a shower for 10 min and paid for it - when... More

We really enjoyed the airboat ride. Speeding through the glades was the best part. We were lucky enough to see a few large gators and lots of other wildlife. The Gator Boys show was fun too! I would recommend!

I went with my family and we ALL had a good time. First the place is. Rey cool for the ambiance they have created. Swampy and creepy. Next, they have food or pic nic tables, which we too advantage of. The tour and guide was great. He told us facts and stopped for very cool pics and brought on board... More

Me and a friend of mine went and took our first airboat ride at Everglades Holiday Park. Let me tell you - for your first airboat ride, you couldn't have a better combination than Capt. Rick, 'Batillac' and the Everglades and all the wonderful creatures. It was a very enjoyable trip. Capt Rick provided a great ride, great information/stories/explanations and... More
