My wife and I took an excursion to Gator Park from our Miami hotel because we wanted to experience a uniquely Florida experience. And this was very good. The group airboat ride was great; driver was informative and fun, and gave us plenty of warning as to when we should put our earplugs in for the louder faster part. We... More

My husband and I and two twelve year olds, took the first private tour of the day at 10.00 with Robert. An amazing trip - one that we will all remember for life and our guide Robert tailored the trip so that it was perfect for us - amazing close up views of the wildlife, very informative and insane fun!...

I thought the short little airboat ride was reasonably priced and just the right length of time to say you experienced the Everglades on an air boat. Our guide was entertaining and informative. We took the group boat ride. You get an an alligator show at the end -short but very informative - which I prefer. Decent little gift shop... More

We opted for a private boat ride which was expensive but had the advantage of guaranteeing each of us a perfect view. The optimum would be for four people to take the private boat. With two rows of seats, everyone would get a perfect view. The boat goes fast, especially around corners, and the seats are completely exposed to the... More

Despite unusually cold temps and high winds, we were able to enjoy a great boat ride with Robert as a guide. We saw many alligators sunning on this cold day and a lot of birds. Robert was knowledgeable and fun, and made sure all on the boat saw the wildlife and obtained pics.We traveled in a party of 7, with... More

Stopped here for air boat ride with husband and friends. Air boat was bigger than what we wanted, $300+ for smaller boat. Ride was supposed to be 1 hour, I'd say it was no longer than 40 minutes. Rude just okay and the alligators they had were extremely small. I would look around for a better air boat business?

Everything is well organized and you get what you pay for. The air boat trips are good but a little short in time. The wildlife show was fine. Good for a short stop and feel of the Everglades

My hubby and I came here and had a wonderful time on the airboat, there was a ton of wildlife to see. You will feel a bit hearded with all of the tour bus groups that are here. The show was very informative. The only part I was not a huge fan of was being able to hold a gator.... More
