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!

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

We enjoyed our air boat ride and our captain, Lou. He was knowledgeable. We attended the show, then held Snappy. Their grounds are very pretty and Instagramable.

I had never been to the everglades before. Our air boat trip was good. However, our guide told us it was the wrong time of year to see very many gators. We learned a lot from the wildlife animal show about gators, however.

The airboat tour was a bit disappointing. The ranger told us it was too hot for alligators so they stayed under water. Besides some insects we haven't seen a single animal. After the airboat you may visit an alligator show which I don't understand when...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.
