An Everglades tour is memorable, instructive, endangered & precious.

The Everglades is a unique ecosystem with lush vegetation filled with alligators and other interesting wildlife. Everyone should visit the Everglades at least once.

Air boat ride, if you have never experienced any type of boat ride, could be exciting. It was OK. We sited a Blue Heron. Ride basically goes south for 15 minutes & then returns north same amount of time. Speeds vary w top speed of about 25 mph. Alligator show lasted 5 - 8 minutes and was strictly educational.

Firstly if you want a private airboat you need to book. However we were quite happy on the larger boat. Was difficult to hear the guide but he stopped a few times to give information. We did see a couple of alligators and a turtle. Such an an expanse of swamp area it is truly unbelievable. There is a short... More

We did the group airboat tour. To be honest, I didn't do enough research on tours before we arrived or I wouldn't have chosen this one. There are clearly much better tours out there. There was no way to hear the driver while riding and I know now that some tours offer two way headsets which would have been much... More

Most of the workers at the park were pretty disinterested or board. For example, the girl who we bought the tickets from? Not a single word from her through the 3 minute transaction. odd. The airboat guide was very good. He seemed very excited about trying to find gators for us. He saw a couple (and I believe him) but... More

We came here with out of town guests and we were disappointed, only saw one alligator at the entrance, and that was it throughout the whole ride. What a waste of time and money, won't be visiting this place again.

We were lucky to go on a 2 hour tour of the Park. Our Captain was really good and explains lots of things including history past and present. before the boat tour we were introduced to the alligators with a short and quick show, very good though.
