Captain Lisa gave our tour group a wonderful learning experience. There are too many species to name off but she did her best. Most importantly, is how the Everglades evolved and how mankind has destroyed parts of this great natural resource. Good news however, you can learn from this trip how the state of Florida and the U.S. Government have... More

Safari park in the Everglades near Miami Florida is definitely worth the visit. If you like nature and enjoy boat rides this is a wonderful day trip. Get on a very large airboat--seats many people and take about a 30-40 minute ride through a small portion of the everglades. You will be able to spot Alligators, Soft shelled turtles and... More

We bought the tour from our hotel on November 16th. The tour included transportation from the hotel and time to visit the Bayside Mall before pickup for return to our hotel. The park tour was excellent, with a 30 minute airboat ride through the Everglades. The captain and guide showed us baby gators and adults in their natural habitat and... More

Had a fantastic time here entertaining my son and his girlfriend from North Carolina. Our grandson was also along and really enjoyed the airboat tour and the alligator wrestling demonstration. The tour guide went above and beyond to show us a good time.

This place was wonderful! Went on a private airboat tour through the everglades, saw several gators and was able to take pictures of them out there. Our captain was Joe and he was excellent. Extremely knowledgable about the animals and everglades and was more than happy to answer our questions. The private tours need to be booked in advance but... More

We purchased a groupon for airboat ride with little expectations. We were pleasantly surprised with how fun this was! The boat tour was long and we saw gators and sped through the glades! Our Captain was Will awesome! The wildlife show was informational and not preachy. Jason let us take photos with Snappy the alligator! I would definitely recommend this... More
