My wife was dying to see the Everglade on an airboat like in CSI Miami. This did not disappoint. The ride in the boat was a really good length, the guide was funny and knowledgable, and we saw a lot of wildlife including baby gators. A lot of fun.

I researched several places before picking this one and I was not disappointed. Great family fun and lots to see and learn. The airboat guide was friendly and made the experience fun and informative. Overall its a good value and the kids will love it.

The tour is well worth every penny that we paid. The man who drives the boat is very informative and genuinely wants each tourist to see as many different animals as possible. Very informative and accommodating to questions.

My daughter and I needed to use up time before a late flight. We enjoyed learning about the natural history of the Miami area and the Everglades national park. Something I have always wanted to do, because the everglades are such an important part of the nature system in the area. Our tour guide was full of a lot of... More

We went to the Everglades Safari park on a groupon and not sure what to expect. The boat ride was cool - we saw several alligators in the water. The alligator show was ok - five minutes of some guy playing with the alligators in a fenced perimeter. BUT I did get to hold a baby alligator at the end... More

We loved the airboat ride. If you have time, book a longer private tour. 30 minutes was not enough. Saw plenty of alligators and birds on the ride. Guide was very knowledgable and funny. The interactive show with a snake and gators was informative but less than was advertised. The remainder of the park was very disappointing, really nothing to... More

We stopped by on our Trip in Florida. It is a must to go on those Boats. The sound and the landscape is just great. The driver was really cool and knew the region very well and showed us a baby aligator and a really big one as well. They also have a park to see the animals up close.... More

We were part of an organized tour group. Last year we did a similar airboat ride in Louisiana. Here the vegetation is wet grassland rather than brooding trees and the alligators are smaller. We did see quite a few 'gators including a very young hatchling and a variety of birds. The airboat captain was very informative and made the trip... More

A very good experience getting on a boat for a tour. Obviously bring your sunscreen and bug repellent. Remember to ask a lot of questions too, the locals are very informed on animal and plant life.
