The rangers were personable and our tour guide had a great sense of humor -- unfortunately, we only got in the aluminum boat before they had to ask us to get off because it was thundering. We all stuck around for the next couple hours,...More

We took an airboat tour offered by Safari Park through the river grass in Shark Valley. This location is a vetted concessionaire of the NPS. The trip was enjoyable and a way to see portions of the Everglades not seen by road or trails. Children...More

It is a nice way to see the Everglades and its Alligators, the problem with the regular airboat tours is that they use very large (and noise) boats which keep the alligators away, will be very hard to see them particularly the big ones. The...More

This is a good place to taste the everglades. Touristic level and has several parts programme. A good stop along the road. The guide will show you the alligators mostly, however the feel of the water-grass is most important.

We were picked up at our hotel and about an hour later arrived at the Safari Park. The airboat ride and expectations surrounding the trip are as exciting as it gets! Don’t expect alligators as shown on the advertising photos. Our Captain eventually found what...More

If you want to support a small, local company this is not the place. Normally I avoid these places as they are overrun by tourists and you don't get much personal service. I choose here since I wanted the flexibility to buy a ticket online...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.
