Pretty good experience on the whole , would have preferred a bit more speeding around on the airboat as that was the most fun . Unfortunately for our group every time we stopped there was hardly any wildlife to see.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour in the Everglades. Our 'captain' was knowledgeable and friendly, as all the staff were. The tour is very interesting. There is a show with some animals and a small museum, which are okay but not terribly excited. Tip - get there when the place opens to get on an early, uncrowded tour. Enjoy!

We did the airboat tour at the safari park and it's worth the money. The guide was very funny and knowledgeable and we were lucky to see many alligators, also a nest of babies. It's interesting to ride through this amazing landscape by boat and to see the floridian nature and wildlife.

Enjoyable half day trip - nice staff and interesting facts, the boat ride was fun and informative. Show is also great, especially my little guy really liked it.

While visiting Miami we wanted to go and take an airboat ride in the Everglades. We found Everglades Safari Park and we are glad we did. The staff was great and the airboat ride was wonderful. Our guide was entertaining and the ride was really cool. Read more about our experience here -> http://www.peanutsorpretzels.com/airboat-ride-everglades-florida/

Decided this was the air boat ride we wanted to take after seeing others reviews. We bought our tickets online to save money (but we still had to wait in the ticket line when we got there to show our e-tickets). After about 10 minutes of waiting (post ticket line), we were directed to our air boat. Right before you... More

It was only after several trips to Miami that I finally decided to visit the Everglades. I don't know why it took me so long but I am glad I finally made it. After all, how can you visit Miami and not visit the Everglades? it competes with the superb green waters of the Caribbean sea in terms of nature... More

It was absolutely awesome zooming through the Everglades in an Air boat. You certainly need the neon ear plugs that they offer you, because the noise of the fans can get pretty loud. The ride lasted for about 45 minutes. The air boat goes slow at times, and very fast in some places. The Captain knows when to speed up,... More

Had a few hours with not much going on and saw a Groupon for the park. There were six of us and had little expectation, but really enjoyed ourselves on a beautiful day. Great for all ages and make sure you do the alligator show after the boat tour of the Everglades, was worth the extra time. Try the restaurant... More

Air boat was fun and guide informative. Saw alligators of various sizes in and out of water. Lots of different herons and many other large birds. Handling a young alligator was interesting too.
