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

Overall, a great experience. Recommend going in the morning, as it gets ridiculously hot as the day goes on. However, once the boat starts really moving, its much more comfortable. Our guide, Capt. Chris, was very knowledgeable on both the flora and fauna of the Everglades and made it interesting and fun. Only two low spots - the airboat ride... More

We loved it! First a one hour airoboattrip on the Everglades with an excellent guide that told us so much about nature and wildlife. We saw some cool birds that love cheddar popcorn! Then we got lucky to see not just one but six alligators! After the airboattrip one of the Gator Boys, Chris, showed us one of the alligators.... More

We stopped here as our final excursion with Royal Caribbean, before heading to the airport and back home. It was hot, hot, hot as we stood in the sun, waiting for the airboats but once we got onto the boat and out on the water, it was shady and cool, and highly enjoyable. Our captain was great - very knowledgable... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our airboat ride touring the Everglades. I was tentative at first, but it was extremely safe and *so* beautiful once out on the water. I was worried about it being hot, given the outside temperature was in the high 80s, but it was quite comfortable under the covered airboat. We got REALLY close to lots of wildlife,... More

Home of the "Gator Boys" of TV fame, Everglades Holiday Park does not disappoint. We had an hour-long air boat excursion and saw a ton of wildlife including gators. The show after the ride was nice as well. The staff was knowledgeable and funny.

This is the best way to view the real Everglades, A big canopy covered, fast airboat takes a group of 20 or so into the far reaches of the wild Everglades. The guide takes you up close to wildlife sightings. He points out plants of interest, and explains the purpose and uses of them in this environment. It is an... More

When looking for something to do in South Florida, I highly recommend Everglades Holiday Park! The airboat rides are those of of a theme park while being very informative. After an hour ride and tour of the Everglades, we got to see The Gator Boys! It was surreal because we have only seen them on TV. My son loved it... More

We had such a nice time on the airboat ride. We learned a lot about the Everglades. The kids were amazed & we were able to get up close to the alligators. The show with the alligators after the boat ride was also educational. The kids got to hold a baby alligator & it was very exciting for them.

It was a nice experience! Especially for my 2 kids 7 & 2 years old. The boat is fun and we got lucky to see some alligators close by. The demonstration show is pretty cool, its like you seeing the show in TV.

Alligator airboat ride was awesome, interesting & different! We took a shuttle directly from Bahia Mar, so we did not drive. (Yeah!) Tour included ride to Everglades Holiday Park, airboat ride, alligator show & time to browse. I loved air boat ride. It was a boat ride from a different perspective. Saw alligators in their natural habitat. Saw many other... More
