“Great time!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

They are closely located to Miami like ten minutes away from the micisuci casino, and they have all you can ask for from a park in the tamiami trail. I've been there a few times there with family and friends, they have nice wild life show that depending on the time of year or host has an assortion of animal, always the alligator! And airboat ride that depending on the captain can be family friendly, or better for the adrenalin junkies!

“Tourist trap”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

They take you on a very short fast noisy air boat ride. For alligators. You may or may not see ANY wild life. It's all about coming back to a show with badly man handled and overfed gators and to have your picture taken with baby gators for 3 bucks.

Yes. Florida is the home of Disney and everything fake. But This is pretty bad.

Hang along the canal on the way to Gator Park. And you have as much or a better chance of seeing a gator. The family with us on the Gator Park ride saw 6 adult gators on the canal and none on the ride. Seriously !!

“Great fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The airboat trip was fantastic. The guide was funny and informative. We saw a few gators and some birds. Back at the park we watched a fantastic presentation show with big and small gators, a massive frog and a scorpion.

“Airboat ride was awesome!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

I took my daughter to enjoy Everglades. The airboat ride was great, loved every moment of it. Specially when they picked u full speed and was almost flying thought the sawgrasses. However, my daughter was very disappointed to see only 2 crocodiles during the entire ride.

“Great time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

Went to Gator Park over Christmas holidays. It was extremely busy, lots of people. They were well organized, and got us out on the airboat in 20 min as promised. The ride was really exciting! Our boat driver was knowledgeable, and we saw lots of wildlife including alligators. Highly recommend this excursion for adults or children. Awesome gift shop with lots of interesting things. We bought an alligator wallet and tried an alligator sandwich.
