“Worth the visit but why all this "Tips" expectations”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

Tour is great but the sailing time is barely 40 minutes and the area visited is very, very limited.
Additional Show is just something you might have seen so many times before and seriously nothing special.

“Worth the visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor, my nephew and I decided to stop at Gator Park before leaving Miami today. The airboat ride was a great experience and we saw several baby alligators and some larger ones. The animal show with the gator "wrestling" was fun, and it was interesting to learn about alligators. Another perk is that this is only a 12 mile drive off the Florida Turnpike. This place is welcoming for people of all ages. The staff was very friendly. If you want to ride and airbort, see a bit of the Everglades, and learn about alligators (about an hour altogether) this is a perfect place to go.

“dont expect too much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2010

just came back from there. during almost 30 mins on the airboat, i think i just saw 5 alligators, few birds, and one turtle; However, i think it was due to scorching sun that big gators choose to hide in the water. Most of the gators are so tiny that you dont even have to worry about if you fell into water accidentally. the most funny part is when captain was driving boat so fast and spinning around on the water which is really good experience if you haven't had a chance of riding on airboat. Wildlife show is short: just saw a man puting his hand in gator's mouth and jumping on gator's back and not getting bite. Charge $3 for taking picture with alligetor that you can hold on your hand.

most of the airboat tour companies are located in the same area so i think the tours they offer are prettey much the same. i will recommend this but don't expect too much.

“Saw only a few gators as it is apparently...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2010

Saw only a few gators as it is apparently 'mating season' but the overall airboat tour was excellent! Followed by an alligator wrestling show, value for money was better than just paying 4 an airboat tour! Thorougly recommended to anyone interested in exploring the Everglades for about 35mins, although there are longer packages available at an extra cost...

“Never seen so many tame gators”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2010

It was a fun trip and the staff was friendly. The trip was short over the Everglades, but it was informative. The tour guide slowed down at times so everyone could stand up and check out the wildlife.
