We went on a tour with a half price coupon. The kids had a great time, saw alligators and other animals.

All included the boat and the animal exhibit were pretty well priced. I got to do 2 things that I had on my bucket list. Go on an airboat through the Everglades and see real gators and I got to hold a baby alligator too! What could be better than that. We did not eat as there was a torrential... More

Very cool place to go. We really enjoyed ourselves. Riding on the air boats was very tranquil regardless of the sound of the boat. Nothing out there but the wildlife. Would like to go again for a longer time.

What a beautiful area, the water, boats, the wildlife and all the beauty of the natural habitat was astounding. The people there were overly friendly helpful and so very kind. Would visit again if I had the chance.

The airboat ride was great and Captain had a lot of knowledge to share about not only the gators but some of the history of Florida, the wildlife and plantlife. Everything was so reasonably priced and you even get a photo at the end. Nice animal exhibit too.

My friend an I loved the 30 minute airboat ride. While it was extremely hot, the Everglades Aircon worked wonders while the boat was in motion. We saw two alligators in our afternoon trip - we felt fortunate as we knew they are often harder to see in the afternoon heat. Our boat captain Deb was very informative and knew... More
