The boat ride was pretty cool. But we didn't see many animals. One bird and one gator on the side of the river. Besides that, it was a lot of grass. Our tour guide was pretty nice, but man do they hammer you for tips......More

Worth doing but its one of those things you do and won’t need to do again. The boat ride is about 30-40 minutes which is enough. The request for tips multiple times is a bit annoying. Every row on the boat had a sign and...More

We had a great time with our tour guide Jay. We saw a couple of turtles, few fish, and at the end two gators right by the boat! We would strongly recommend this as a must do!

Thank you for your feedback. Everglades Safari Park does not have a transportation company. There are a few transportation companies that we may refer clients to but they are their own entity not tied to Everglades Safari Park. Every airboat ride is different sometimes you...More

We loved this air boat ride through the Everglades and the short alligator show/tutorial thereafter. All in all the whole visit took about 75 minutes but it was pretty cool. The park rangers/tour guides are a bit worn around the edges and the gift shop...More

In the boat we used there was not access for wheelchair bound individuals. There are private and individual tours as an option. It is worth a call to inquire if they can accommodate your needs.

When I went last year they sold yellow ponchos in the shop. The boat doesn't get you wet but it was raining when we visited. They were a couple of dollars each in the gift shop.
