I visited here with my son. The airboat ride was $23 for 40 min. Even though we were not able to see many alligators in the swamp, they had a lot in their farm. If the weather were good and you had plenty of time, visiting this place would be good for day trip.

If you're touring around Miami in a car, then I guess this is worth a visit. However, for us it meant an $80 rt visit from N Miami using Uber, and we barely made it back because there was little reception to run the app. Yes, we saw a few small alligators and some cool birds and the airboat ride...

We chose this place to go on an airboat ride and see alligators as it was reasonably close to Miami, easy to get to and offered all that we wanted to see. As soon as we got out of our car (next to a pond) there was a 6ft alligator in the water right next to us, be careful not... More

We took the tram tour (the younger ones cycled or walked), within the Everglades and had an interesting exposure to the alligator world. The knowledgeable and friendly guide made the tour quite interesting, and it was an experience getting up close to all those alligators!. Babies, mamas - we saw the whole lot. And there were birds of various kinds... More

We made an airboattour with this company and was an very pleasant ride. We chose this company because it was located along us 41, and tour actually goes thru the Everglades ( instead of the area on the other side of the road which doesn't belong to Everglades NP). We spottend à lot of alligators, including a mother with babies.... More

The entire family loved the airboat ride. You get a slow, trip to see the plant and animal life. Then - ear plugs in - and off across the everglades. The alligator show was not spectacular, but nice to see. However, the food did not appear to be very appetizing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent tour with Everglades Safari Park! The boat ride was very interesting. We got to see a lot of wildlife, quite a few alligators, and the beautiful Everglades. My only complaint would be that the water in the restrooms was rusty. This concerned me because the same building also housed the restaurant which may have used... More

There are many air boat tours of the Everglades in this area, which makes it more difficult to choose which is the best. Our initial intention was to head to Everglade City and use one of the reputable air boat tours there. Due to our day slipping away on us, we chose to use Everglades Safari Park. We didn't have...

We made it to Everglades Safari Park pretty close to the park opening and I recommend others do the same if you are visiting during a holiday. We were able to pay for the airboat tour and get on the next boat. After our 45 minute trip there were busses in the lot and very long lines. The tour was... More
