The Gator Park is a small attraction. The major part of the experience is the airboat ride, which was incredibly fun. The guides are knowledgable entertainers who do a fantastic job. You are pretty much guaranteed to see several alligators and other wildlife on the ride. The other part of the admission includes a small wildlife show which is pretty... More

For only $24, included a fun 20 minute airboat ride in the Everglades. Followed by a short alligator show that was amusing and fun. Typical amusement tourist spot. Only a half hour drive outside the city

After reading some of the bad reviews I felt compelled to write about my own experience. For the money I spent and what I saw it was deffinately worth it. We saw gators as soon as the boat pulled out and saw a totall of about 5 including one with its baby's. Our tour guide was funny and very informative... More

What a great experience! I always watch CSI Miami and I love the speed boats, we finally got to ride on one! Our guide told us everything about different kinds of birds, wild flowers, the sawgrass, and we also were lucky enough to see three alligators! After the airboat ride, the wildlife show, it was fun, and our daughter kissed... More

You got your moneys worth. Didn't have to wait long, we did actually see live, free alligators. Demonstration show after the ride was awesome, informative and entertaining and of course you get an opportunity to have your picture taken with a little gator. You only paid $3 and have a someone take your picture with your camera. No rip off... More

Well for the price it was OK. But the airboat ride was woefully short. I work with animals a lot and know that they cannot be coerced into appearing for tourists but for a gator park seeing only a few baby's it was pretty lame. The main problem was the large number of boats on the water. you don't see... More

You can't visit Florida without seeing alligators in the wild and taking an airbot ride through the everglades. Gator Park is jus over 30 minutes from Miami and very easy to get to. The visit started with an airboat ride. The ride lasted perhaps 45 minutes with a very personable guide. We not only saw a lot of adult alligators... More

This was a great time to do this! You start off with a very fun airboat ride! You can ask the guide questions etc and they take you out for about 30 mins or so. When you come back you get a little wildlife show as well a chance to even hold a gator if you are brave enough :)... More

We wanted to spot the alligators in the everglades and took the ride with the airboat on a sunny, warm day.... but.... we really enjoyed the ride, we have had a great guide and had fun!!! No alligators spotted... for the joy of my mum.... but we all had a good time on the boat. We saw the gators after... More
