Service is excellent, and the selection of souvenirs is pretty large and relatively cheap. If you're looking to eat gator tail and frog legs this is your place!

We had 12 hours before our flight after getting off our cruise and we rented a car to go to the everglades. If you get to Gator Park before 10:00am you can get buy one get one free, so that was a bonus. The tour was fine and we saw a few gators. The Alligator show after was a bit... More

After paying for the excursion, it was also expected that we tip the airboat driver, pay $3 to hold a baby alligator for a picture, and... More

We had a great experience on the airboat ride, Thomas was funny and very knowledgeable about the everglades, gave us some interesting facts! Got to see a animal show and even hold a baby alligator to take pics! The food was interesting and delicious; ate some catfish, frog legs and alligator. A must try!

We enjoyed this airboat trip and felt it was a good value. Nice tour of Everglades with several gators in the wild plus an interesting show. Good driver and narration. Recommended for the whole family. Limited food and a gift shop are available.

Spent a couple of hours at Gator Park which included a 30-40 minutes airboat ride in the everglades. We did this first on arrival to the park and it was an excellent experience. The boat captain was very informative and we enjoyed our time on this experience through the everglades, we got to see several alligators in the wild. This... More

The airboat ride started out slowly with the operator frequently killing the engine so he could point out things of interest such as animals and vegetation. The operator then poured on the gas an treated us to an fast, exhilarating ride over the saw grass- covered Everglades, culminating in a sudden 180 degree turn of the airboat. While the ride...
