Staff was very knowledgeable of the Everglades and knew where to take you for the day. They were entertaining. Had a large group and were able to accommodate all of us nicely.

My wife Christine and I were visiting friends in Naples. Mapping our trip from Miami - Naples - Fort Meyers - Miami, we came across the Everglades Safari Park in Trip Advisor. I will tell you POINT BLANK, there are quite a few air boat choices along RT. 41, but Safari will not disappoint! Raoul was our boat pilot/guide on... More

It cost us $40/ person that include shuttle from and back to South Beach and the park. It was very interesting and fun. We started with a boat ride thru the Everglades than a small presentation followed and than walked to their mini zoo. They also have a restaurant and store on site.

I'm so glad we booked a private tour instead of the big boat one. We had a small boat for just the 6 of us (adult and teens) that can accommodate maybe 9 pax max, and had a 40 min ride with our great guide Raoul. He was very nice, explained a lot and obviously knows his stuff. he has... More

I got to experience everything from the gators to the shows. It was amazing to see how close you were able to get to the gators and seeing them in their natural habitat. I can't wait to be back!

Do not go unless it's sunny.As a one-time experience of going on an airboat, it was fun but overpriced for a thirty minute boat ride.The driver was able to find spots with alligators to point out.At times, the boat seemed to be out of control, gliding sideways.I never felt afraid or in any danger.Seeing the alligators in the wild was...

We did not want to Walk in to a tourist trap. And we did'nt. 25usd for adults and kids under 3 was free. Not much waiting time. Went off in a Big boat with 20 people. Trip was 35 min. And we saw 12-15 alligators and some turtles. A few stops and some engaged talking by the captain. After that... More

Last summer my wife and I stopped at another place along US-41 and it was terrible. My review was posted last summer. Last month we stopped at the Everglades Safari Park with our children and my parents. Everyone had a great time. It was a far cry from the experience we had earlier in the year. The airboat ride was... More

Staff was very friendly. Our boat captain did a great job...entertaining, funny and educational. A little disappointed as we only saw a few gators on our ride and limited other wildlife, but it was still enjoyable. We got to hold a young gator named "Snappy" for a small donation to a wildlife fund.
