After some heavy research I narrowed our options to this and one more vendor and I will be perfectly honest the price + size of them boat (felt more comfortable having something around me versus sitting on the top of a seat without any barriers, though others probably should consider this as well if they are into this for "more...

If you love nature and want to see unique landscapes, you should definitely go to one of the everglade safari, this nature is the only subtropical preserve in North America, so don't miss it! There are many places where you can do the tours, you will see when driving by the 8th street, but this one is very good, well... More

When you arrive you start with an air boat ride of about 30 minutes. The boat takes you out in the Everglades for a bit, where you can enjow the scenery and hopefully see an alligator. We saw one, and a turtle. When you get back you can visit the wildlife show which is horrible, and has nothing to do... More

Fantastic couple of hours! Had lunch then joined the airboat. Excellent guide who obviously knew the places to look. Saw some baby alligators and their grumpy mum, turtle and more alligators. Great fun at full speed! Alligator show was very informative and the children enjoyed holding the baby alligator at the end. Well worth a visit!

The ride on the airboat was amazing! It was one of the things I have always wanted to do and I am glad I did! But th actual trip on the airboat in the everglades was very short, it was hardly 20min and we were back which was rather dissapointing. We did not see any wild animals really except for... More

I wasn't particularly thrilled to partake in this attraction. It was a hot day and about a forty minute drive from where we were staying. However, my wife and daughter really wanted to go. My attitude changed once we were on the airboat. Riding and learning about the Everglades was interesting. Our driver was entertaining and provided interesting facts about... More
