Overview
Really exploring the Everglades means leaving the roads behind, and a maneuverable, fast-moving airboat is ideally suited for taking on Florida's marshy landscape. This airboat tour and alligator show takes you deep into alligator country safely, with a local captain to help spot native plants and wildlife as you go. Plus, this short tour has an easy-to-find meeting spot, making it especially convenient for travelers crunched for time.
What to Expect
Make your way to Fort Lauderdale’s Everglades Holiday Park. Kick off this Everglades experience with a professional group photo, a souvenir that’s included in your tour price.
Board a state-of-the-art airboat, and then hold on tight as the captain steers you across the River of Grass and into the Everglades. This guided tour is all about spotting alligators, and there are a lot to see in the Everglades, along with wild plants, other animals, and a fascinating ecosystem.
After time on the water, return to the Gator Pit to see the Gator Boys Rescue Team, the stars of a hit Animal Planet television series. See exciting stunts, but also learn about the American alligator and the importance of preserving one of the country’s largest wild tropical areas.
Following your airboat tour and alligator show, enjoy free time exploring the Holiday Park’s cafe, general store, and gift shop.

We live here in Florida, so we just drove. It’s about a half hour for us. If visiting, I would suggest a rental car, Uber, or taxi. It’s an easy drive.

It’s general admission. When you arrive you are assigned to a specific boat that leaves at a specific theme (in order of arrival).
