Visited the park because I had seen it on Animal Planet. The airboat ride was great! It lasted about an hour. Even though it was pretty cool for the gators, we saw several that were very close to the boat. We also saw some beautiful, untouched natural habitat and some beautiful birds. After the airboat ride, there is an alligator... More

Nowadays it is so hard to find something unspoiled and untouched but this was it. Totally captivating. Quiet and beautiful.

This is a well run business set right in the Everglades. Boat driver/guides are well trained, and work hard to show you all you've come to see. Tourist store is just that...touristy/kitchy

During the past 50 plus years, we have traveled to Florida many times but never gone to this incredible attraction . It was absolutely fabulous and we enjoyed it immensely! The location is approximately 30 minutes from the airport and you can either drive there or take a tour. We did not plan on having a car during our stay... More

Gave this a poor review based on average for boat ride and terrible for gator park. We were really excited to go, after watching the TV show all the time and reading the website. I had hoped to get my picture taken with one of the gator boys (or girls). What a disappointment! The airboat ride was OK, saw a... More
