We were on the first tour of the day. The tour guide was efficient and informative with a good sense of humor. He pointed out the different birds, trees, fruits, and swamp areas. We saw about 6 alligators on the tour. The Everglades are just so beautiful! The green lush is simply amazing! The alligator show was short and so... More

We arrived for the first tour on the Sunday of July 4th weekend, knowing that this is not prime season for gator viewing. The good news is that the boat was only half full. The not-as-good news is that we had to wait for 20 minutes while they warmed up all the boats. And our driver didn't seem at all... More

This is a great place to see and learn about the Everglades . My children loved the airboat ride. The park is clean and airboats are well maintained.

Went to this with my family, 3 teenagers and my wife. We were very unlucky with the weather as we arrived just as some thunder activity arrived. As a result the airboats were not going out. We were left waiting for an hour before they decided to let us start with the show. The show was entertaining but at the... More

Came here with two friends. Went for the 30/40 mins airboat ride and the alligator show. The airboat was great, the captain was really informative & chatty, we saw loads of alligators and other wildlife. The alligator show was really well done and there is lots of other stuff to see there. We spent the whole morning but it's best... More

My boyfriend and I went this past 4th of July weekend. We had a Groupon offer, the experience was nice. We didn't see much out on our Airboat ride. Staff was very friendly. I was surprised we didn't have to wait too long to get onto the airboat.

We booked on line and the tour included a pick up and it arrived promptly in our hotel. We were the first to be picked up so we had to wait about an hour to pick up other people from different hotels. The bus was ok and the driver was also the guide. The drive to the Ever Glades was... More

Want to see alligators up close and personal? You found the place. They are everywhere. There is even a short show feeding the giants. Nice guides and good educational experience.

We had a great time attraction with a knowledgeable and friendly staff. We saw lots of interesting wild life. Spotting gators in FL is always hit or miss and we were luck and got a few hits this day. Our guide took us for a fun ride and includes information on the plants of the Glades as well as the... More

We wanted to do something a bit different, so we decided to visit the Everglades. We really did not think we would enjoy it because we are not the outdoors kind of family. However, we agreed to try something different and it was great. Our teenagers really enjoyed the airboat ride, the tour guide was very funny, and they enjoyed... More
