We did this as a excursion when getting of a cruise ship. The airboat ride is ok but pretty short. We did not see much wildlife. The alligator show lasted a whole 5 minutes. We did get to hold a small alligator for a donation.

We were on a private Everglades tour and this was our second stop, after having come from Shark Valley. It was really cool walking to the airboats as you can see alligators then and there, they come right up to the decking! The airboat is well organised and our driver was a friendly guy who did his best to find... More

It was a fun experience to get to see the everglades, but we were disappointed to only see one baby alligator and a turtle on the tour. All of the alligators and crocodiles seemed to be behind the cages. The "show" after the boat tour was really informative. We could tell the alligator keeper that hosted the show was very... More

Liked the airboat ride, the alligator exhibits and best of all the alligator show. Parking was tight and we had to park off the side of the highway and walk along the highway which was dicey for a couple of minutes.

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.
