I was there with my wife and our Kids (7 & 4) and we had a wonderful Time. The airboattour was very informative and we saw what we Wanted to see: Alligators, Snakes and the nature itself. The Alligator-Show was also very exciting. Next Time WE will join again! Thx Rick!!! Alex from Germany

Drove down while visiting west palm beach with my wife. Saw an ad on the Florida state parks website. I had been on a fsp tour in Tallahassee several months ago that I thought was pretty good, and knowing this was not fsp, thought we would try it. It started out ok, we managed to get on a boat pretty... More

The boat ride was really interesting. Fairly short, but it was so hot that I wasn't complaining. Our captain was knowledgeable and friendly, but it was often hard to hear her. She seemed to know right where to take us to see alligators, which was great! I did feel a little bit like part of a cattle call however. Right... More

We booked this tour blind, through our hotel, so had no set expectations. We were just told how long the boat ride would be. The boat ride was a little shorter than we were advised..... But to be honest it was blisteringly hot, so that was fine. Our boat driver was knowledgable and pointed out things of interest as we... More

Was left feeling a little deflated. The Airboat Ride was good yes, but not really long enough, and you don't see a great deal (I guess it depends on the time of day)! Nice big boats, and fast too, however you don't get such an intimate experience that you would more likely get on a smaller boat, if you are... More

our first everglades visit. recommended by our hotel. hugely disappointed. Most aspects of this attraction/ operation are sub par . our visit saw no wildlife - spare a turtle and a tiny gator disappearing into the reeds. the guide seemed resigned to these thin pickings and made little or no effort . boats are good i have to say ,...

Went to see the everglades for the first time, with the family. Had no expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. Quite enjoyable. The boat was fun, fast, and thrilling at speeds. The captain was very capable and accommodating. Saw lots of alligators and turtles. Highly recommend.

In general, the bad seems to outweigh the good regarding this park. Positives include short wait for boat ride, free earplugs, Groupon discount, and scenic boat tour. Negatives to keep in mind: (a) the airboat tour is only 20 min, NOT 30-40 min...this was disappointing and left us really confused when we turned a corner and saw the dock, (b)... More

We had an ok morning at the Everglades, however the airboat rude was pretty boring as we did not see much apart from one turtle. The holding a baby crocodile was pretty cool and the restaurant served a wide range of fast food. The park is ok for a few hours out but not an all day thing.

Air boat ride was nice but slightly disappointing as we saw more alligators at the dock than we did in their actual habitat. We were even the first boat out in the am hoping to have that advantage. Saw birds and turtles and received some education about the Indians that inhabited the island. Saw a gator nest that is off... More
