This place has all it needs to make it good for any group I would defiantly recommend it to my friends but make sure you bring mosquito spray and you should defiantly try the alligator meat really tasty

“Airboat ride was fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014 NEW

What a ride! I have never ridden on/in an airboat and it was a blast. We started out slow, working our way into the swamp, saw a couple of gators on the way out. The guide had warned us that we WILL get wet on this ride and we couldn't figure out why until the first 360 degree turn we made. After that, we understood. We rode out somewhere into the Everglades, turning, cutting and zooming over what did not seem like enough water to float the boat. The guide was friendly, informative and seemed to enjoy his job. If you have never ridden an airboat and you are close to Miami, I believe this park would be a good place to start being a fan of airboats!

“First time on AirBoat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 NEW

First time on an airboat and it was great! To get the best seats try to arrive early when they first open to beat the crowd and be the first in line for your group! Our driver was really great and the tour itself was very fun and informative! At the end the gator show was cute and my favorite part was taking a pic with the gator! ($3)
I would definitely recommend for first timers and would definitely go back!
I believe the tour was about 30-45min and we saw baby gators and a mother gator during the tour. We also saw frogs, lizards, birds and etc.

“Fun place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014 NEW via mobile

We had few hours to kill on the way from the Keys to Miami. Stopped at this attraction because it was recommended by friends, and it was not too far out of our way. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. We saw few gators, as well as other wildlife. Airboats are fun, and this area is beautiful. Everyone had a blast, adults and kids. We bought our tickets online on the way there, $18 for adults and $10 for kids. Great deal!
