To get a private boat, (I recommend Captain Armondo!). over 2 hours of high and low speed fun! Beautiful views, island explorations, and a great and knowlegable host.

Alligator Boys did a nice show when the ride was over (for donations), and the convient store was... well, convient!

The airboat captain did not venture far into the Everglades, so we got very few and very short bursts of the exciting ride other tour operators offer. Most of the time was spent slowly circling grassy areas looking for wildlife, most of which were common birds. We saw one small alligator.

The tour was dull and disappointing, compounded on the way back by the captain's complaints about his pay structure and plea for tips. The tour turned into an unpleasant guilt trip for the passengers.

I visited for Mother's Day 2011, rode the air boats, the tour guide is very informative and funny, then we pet the baby alligators, and finally we ate at their restaurant, which is not that great in decor but good food

You won't get a better bang for you buck than Holiday Park! Experience the Everglades close up with an entertaining, knowledgeable guide. Meet gators close up and fantastic birds like never before! Even if you didn't see gators, the airboat ride is well worth the money. Don't miss the gater show after your boat ride. Come early to beat the crowd.

We debated between Billy Swamp Safari and this place and was very happy to have chosen this. The guides are friendly, experts in the area. the airboat ride is not too long and since we are enclosed in the book, the sound of the motor is not too deafening. Perfect outing for kids, the Gator Boyz show is a huge plus...we met Ashley and some of the crew. Best time!
