We went here because our daughter is a huge fan of the Gator Boys TV show. She was quite disappointed that Paul and Jimmy were nowhere to be seen. (Sorry, Chris.) The shade cover over the airboat was a HUGE benefit. Our guide was friendly, funny and quite informative. The gator show was probably just what we expected from watching... More

While most airboat rides places are pretty similar, most feel kind of tourist trap-ish. The Everglades rides are very interesting particularly if the gators are active. I've never taken the evening rides which generally have a lot more gator activity. It's dark as hell too.

The air boats are something to see. The history of the area is interesting; even better if you catch a glimpse of a gator. The employees are well versed and trained about their job.

We are so happy we decided to visit this attraction! I am a mother of three children, ages 16, 10 & 2, and finding something to do that will suit the whole family can be quite a challenge. So when we each left with a big fat smile plastered on our faces, I knew we had found a jewel! We... More

Being fans of Gator Boys, we jumped at the chance to visit Everglades Holiday park before a cruise. Batman took us on a terrific Airboat ride, and his knowledge of the ecosystem, as well as his relationship with the gators was mind blowing. The show featuring Chris Gillette was also awesome. This was a highlight, well worth the value, and... More

The airboat ride was very good and the tour guide did an excellent job. However, the staff behind the front desk was very unprofessional and they were too busy talking to each other to be bothered by us. It seemed like they were doing us a favor to stop their conversations and actually wait on us and answer our questions.

We stopped at the last second to take an air boat ride at Holiday Park. By the luck of the draw, we got Captain Mike as our guide. He was AMAZING!!! He didn't rush the tour and found us great spots to visit gators. Everyone on board had a blast. If I ever make it back, I will wait for... More

Took family of 5 with young children. Exceeded my expectations. We had a boat captained by "Swampy J" (Jason) who was simply entertaining and fabulous. We stayed out about 1 hour, which was a perfect time. Swampy J was thorough in explaining the history, flora and fauna of the Everglades. He made sure we saw live alligators. The boats do... More

Everglades Holiday Park is a great way to spend a few hours learning about the Everglades and the animals that live there for a very reasonable price. You can book online for a discount and they provide discounts for military, first responders and others. The air boat ride is an hour long trip through several waterways where you see several...
