As an old Texas oil and gas auditor I used to deal with gators in tank farm moats, storage yards, canals, under buildings, and under cars. As a diver, I had to deal with them in various lakes and rivers. Now that I am retired it was fun to see them in a non work setting swimming in the Everglades... More

Seeing the Everglades and alligators was something I wanted to see. However, I was a bit disappointed. The hover boat ride was great! They give you earplugs so no need to buy your own. Ride was about 30 minutes long and the guide was very informative and funny. Saw a couple of baby alligators, turtles and a bird. That was... More

Came here with the family and had an amazing time!! The staff were friendly and helpful and the show was educational. The boat ride gave us a chance to see gators up close and personal and even got to hold one for a small fee. Must see on a miami vacay!!!

This was suppose to be the highlight when I visited Miami since I wanted to see the swamp and ride a hovercraft. When we arrive at the place, which is located next to the highway, it didn't look too good. When you step into the area, you can see that there is a lot of tourists around the area and... More

We had an awesome time on the airboat al gave kept us entertained on the trip. The boat ride was fun and al kept sliding the boat from one side to the other to allow each side of the boat to get a great view we saw a few gators including a baby. The wildlife show was also entertaining. Definitely... More

The tour on airboat was a lot of fun and our tour guide 'Trucky' was very informative. Saw bits of wildlife but you need good eyes to see the gators in all the brush.

Came here with my big family in hopes of seeing some gators. Paid about $25 per person for an unsatisfactory 30 minutes out on the water. We only saw 1 baby alligator for about 3 seconds. I would not recommend this place. Too overpriced for what we got.

We got a voucher from a booklet we got at the airport so we got a free picture with an alligator and 2 for 1 entrance (before 10AM). This made it even better! The boat ride was fun and fast. We saw some wild alligators and other wildlife. We loved it :-). A must do if youre in Miami!

My Daughter and I had a great time at the Gator Park. Great for Families and Groups. The Guide was knowledgeable of the area and the wildlife that inhabits the Everglades. I highly recommend this place as people are treated like family. Thanks christin and Sabine.
