We made arrangements with a company to be taken to the Sawgrass Recreation Park in the Everglades with Everglades Tours. The Everglades Tours did not show so we had our desk person @ Best Western Oceanside phone the Park people & they finally had Sheldon take us to the Park!! Not a very well run Tour Co. BUT Sheldon was... More

It was so beautiful and interesting. We we shown and told about a snake before boarding. We didn't see many alligator due to the cold but it was fun, informative and beautiful. Our guide/driver was excellent. A must do.

We went to the Everglades Holiday Park for a air boat ride and to see the Gator Boys. The air boat ride was a thrill and more; our captain Ashley was both knowledgeable and funny. The day was warm and sunny and we were able to see alligators in the water and out on the banks, birds of all kinds... More

This was a fun thing to do before setting sail on our cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. It only took about 30 minutes to get there from our hotel. The airboat ride was just a little disappointing since we really didn't go "flying" over the glades but once or twice during the 1 hour ride. The Everglades are beautiful to... More

We booked this excursion thru Carnival Cruise lines since we had plenty of time to waste before our 4:30PM flight out of FLL. We had a good time. The airboat ride was nice, only saw 2 gators though...I was expecting to see more. It was kind of a chilly day and cloudy so apparently they like to hide on those... More

I come here with my nephew all the time. It's easy to rent a boat to fish the canals. The airboats are fun for people who haven't been to the Everglades before, and the gator show is fun. Look out for the peacocks, and make sure you grab gator bites.

a very nice attraction not far from Ft Lauderdale. at the northern edge of the Everglades you can take an airboat tour of some channels to view the various plant life and birds and it you are lucky an alligator or two. The guides offer a wealth of information about the region and its history. a highlight is the gator... More

This place sounded so fun from reading the reviews. There were only a couple negative reviews that I ignored. That was a mistake! This place is very disorganized and a disappointment. We arrived...hung around waiting for our boat number to be called. Then we had a picture of our group taken, which was then offered to us for $10. We... More
