Visited gator park as a part of an organised tour, the park was good, the airboat tour, whilst short, was excellent, saw plenty alligators and other wildlife.

I am definitely recommending Gator Park. As I already was visited Miami and enjoyed this very nice attraction for second time, than comparing Gator park with the "previous park" - Gator Park I liked more! Perhaps my sympathy to Gator Park is due to the fact that we have seen baby gator and gator, but is always a game of... More

We had a few hours left in Miami and booked this on a whim. It was a great finish to our vacation. Staff were wonderful. We saw Gators, turtles and baby gators out on the airboat and then learned more about them in the show. The bus ride out was BRUTAL though so prepare yourself for that. We were the... More

I visited Gator Park with my family & it was one of the best trips I've made so far. The air boat rides were fantastic and the shows were amazing. The Everglades combo was great, my family and I enjoyed it all quite alot. I will definitely come back again, having a helpful German translator is one of the best... More

Just the right length of time and level of interest for my 8 year old son (and my wife). the 30 minute airboat ride was just right - fast and exciting over the river of grass. Driver does some nice wild turns to add to the thrill. the better part is the slow ride out then back in - where... More

Took a side trip from Miami (about 30 minute drive) to Gator park and had a fun 2 hour adventure. Started with a 35 minute airboat ride with a great tour guide. We saw a variety of critters (alligators/turtles/birds/fish) and enjoyed some airboat maneuvers as well. It was safe and enjoyable. Then after the ride, they provide a 20 minute... More

I took a group of 32 high school students to Gator Park in late March. We had a wonderful visit. The attraction is well-run and very accommodating. The students loved the airboat ride and found it very exciting. The gator show made some students feel uncomfortable about the treatment of the animals. The animals on the grounds were also of...

As a family we enjoyed it. Our son, age 8, loved holding the gator ($3 donation per person requested), and we all loved the speed of the airboats. Positives: 1. Riding out in the saw grass at high sped is quite a thrill. 2. Wade, our guide, was very informative about the history, habits, ecology, and Eco-environment issues 3. The... More
