Does exactly what the ticket says in a really really fun way! The boat ride is awesome and so is holding the alligator! Staff are very polite and enthusiastic! Highly recommended and book on the day if visiting from outside us to avoid vat and credit card fees

The tour guide we had was 5 stars! He was very informing of the surroundings and wild life + we had a blast on the air boat ride. Afterwards we met up close and personal with a group of large gators, a bird, a bull frog, scorpion, and baby gators. We watched a guy feed them and he informed us... More

Good airboat ride with a few stops, nice alligator and snake show. Lots of possibilities to tip for the staff :) The official part is not too long, but enough, you have free time to walk around afterwards.

We spent a week in the keys and on the last day back to the airport we decided to stop in the Everglades. I am so glad we did! We took an airboat, watch gator wrestling, kissed a gator, touched a gator, looked a a scorpion, and saw gators in their pins all for $24.00. What a deal and so... More

It's very remote with no wifi so make sure you have organised a lift back to where you came from, we got a cab out and realised when we arrived that we had no way back,... More

Really meant to visit this place as I see this in CSI:Miami. It was a great experience. There was some educational lecture prior to the ride from which we learned a lot from. I recommend the staff selling the tickets to warn guests about mosquitos! I had a lot of mosquito bites and it was kind of late for me... More

What a great day it has been at gator park! The airboat tour was awesome and you got to see plenty of gators...and they aren't afraid to come right up to the boat! The gator show was also awesome and for just a small fee you get to hold one and take a picture with it!

I am so happy I got to go there and see the gators. I had the best day ever. I hope I can go there again and see some more gators.

Short boat ride but very nice. Gator park wrestling entertaining. About 2 hrs total to check everything out. And gator nuggets and frog legs to finish with.
