First time on air-boat. Wonderful experience. Captain Ron was very entertaining and kept group all excited with his commentary. Thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Only advice make sure you walk with insect repellent for the mosquitoes

As a European, we have nothing like this that I am aware of. Near where I live, the Norfolk Broads are just not the same. There is a real beauty here that I did not expect and I'd happily wander aimlessly for ages. Unfortunately, I suspect I would get lost or be taken by a gator, so guided tours are... More

We paid 55 to get a 2 1/2 hot ride from the Conrad. What was so shocking was how everywhere we went, there were signs saying we needed to tip 15%. The guide on the boat came right out and said we should tip him. The boat ride was about 30 min. We saw nothing but another air boat fly... More

Vacation few years ago now. Well worth visiting but be prepared for the heat & humidity. No 50 dollar bills as they don't like changing them. Air boat trip was the best, fast, exciting, seats are very hot on your skin if your wearing shorts beware when you go to stand up as your stuck to the seat. Alligators, lots... More

Everglades Safari Park is one of the few attractions in South Florida I had never visited, so I was eager to check it out. It was better than the Everglades Alligator Farm or Gator Park, but I don't know if that says much. It is run basically like an assembly line. Within seconds of getting our tickets, we were already... More

I've lived in Miami for 15 years and I've brought many visitors to airboat rides. This is by far, the best. I understand that sometimes is not up to the Tour guides how many alligators you can spot, that's nature, but believe me, I've used many different tour parks, and this is where it's been the most enjoyable. I bring... More

We went on this trip as part of an excursion with a cruise ship company which gave us something to do before heading to the airport for our flight. It went all wrong from the very beginning and didn't get better until we arrived at the airport. First, they oversold the bus. There weren't enough seats for all of the... More

The guide did well to explain the origins of the Everglades and the wildlife. The ride wAs shortened because of drought, so the shallow water made fewer places accessible. The biggest gators seen on the trip were the ones lazing int the water around the dock.

Not too many sightings on our day but we still managed to enjoy ourselves. We had a great guide and tried gator bites afterwards, delish.
