Very friendly and helpful staff. I recommend this place and I will be coming back next summer. I took over 90 students on a summer camp and Gator Park handled all of them perfectly.

Enjoyable boat ride lasted approx. 45 minutes. Spent about 20mins at speed which was the best bit. The rest of the time we were travelling slowly whilst the guide tried to spot wildlife. We saw one baby alligator, a few birds and a baby turtle. Vegetation was also pointed out and we saw how lethal saw grass can be! Wildlife... More

It is worth the private tour for groups of 10 or more. The whole family had fun. The three generations in the family enjoyed the air boats. Alligator tail platter is highly recommended. It was fun and educational. The staff is both helpful and accommodating.

This was a fun tour but unfortunately it doesn't compare to the Louisiana airboat tours in terms of tour length or quality. We only saw 2 baby gators on the whole tour. On the other hand, the gator show was excellent!

Ask for Roger!!!! We found this gator park by doing a search on the internet. We have never been on an airboat or taken the kids to a gator park before. This was a family trip so I wanted to make this special and reserve a "private tour". Upon arriving to the gator park, we were told that our guide... More

We went mainly for the airboat ride. We saw plenty of alligators and other wildlife, and thought it was a good tour. We enjoyed the wildlife show, and thought the host was pretty comical. I think my favorite part was getting a picture with an alligator.

We were travelling from Key Largo back to Miami and looking for an airboat ride to experience a little of the Everglades. A local visitor information centre directed us to the park. The Gator's were cute little things when compared to the big Salties (around 20 feet for a big adult) that we get back home but the air boat... More

Boat ride was extremely short for amount paid ($83 for family of 4 - they tried to sell us a private boat ride for $300). Saw two gators, a few birds. Guide talked about landscape, insects, birds and a little about gators. After swift, disappointing ride the guide requested tips as he escorted each row of guests off boat. There... More

Great time!! We had a great experience at gator park. Staff was helpful and friendly. Great overnight stop for the rv travellers to take in the everglades. Our kids had an awesome time. We felt very well taken care of during our overnight stay with gator park. Air boat ride was fast and fun!!

Location was ideal. Captain Wade was excellent as an airboat tour guide, providing interesting information about wildlife, the Everglades, and trivia about the area. Saw several gators, including a baby gator, a mama, and a blinded gator named Grumpy. The airboat ride was fun for my family. I highly recommend Gator Park. It has the most space for parking, it...
