Seeing the alligators with our grandchildren was exciting and fun. We enjoyed the show and the boat ride. A nice way to spend the afternoon in Miami

Bring your bug spray and strong sunblock to best enjoy this outdoor experience. Don't underestimate the heat. That being said, there was a lot to see and learn on our airboat tour. You need a sharp eye to make the most of this tour as the wildlife is quite adept at disguising themselves. Ear plugs were provided and the tour... More

Just to finish our holiday off we went on the airboats over the Everglades, excellent adventure, staff very knowledgeable to where the gators are. A trip you won't forget in a hurry. Small cafe on site. Well worth a visit if you get a chance.

Was actually just looking for a good airboat ride, but these boats were too large to enjoy the view. I was hoping to go through the grasslands, but the water was too low, which is not the park's fault. I understand there is nothing they can do about the drought, but it would have been a lot nicer to be... More

We visited the Everglades Safari park and had a great visit! We saw plenty of gators and our guide was so informative and answered all the questions posed to him. The park itself was so nice and lots of signs to let us know what we were looking at. There were plenty of fan boats to take us out so... More

During the time of our trip, the water level was very low because it was off season. We only saw a few alligators and not very well at all. We did stop in the Cafe to have alligator bites which were very good. It was a must to on my bucket list, but wouldn't want any more than the 30... More

I was very disappointed in the airboat tour, but the staff and equipment were excellent. Before you book this tour just know that the Everglades are loosing the water used for airboats. Road construction and habitat damage are causing the Everglades to change so don't expect much during your visit. We did see a short show about alligators, but it... More
