The airboat captain took us on an excursion through the swamp were we saw birds, gators, and fish. We even got to feed some birds! They made every effort possible to let us get some great photos by turning the boat around so everyone could see. Gator show was great, very up close. We even got to see some filming for Gator Boys! Well worth the trip!!!

The boat tour is an hour long, but good for the price $25 adults, 12$ kids, then you get to
watch the show which also half hour and then can hold a baby allagator for $5 and take
picture, kids really loved it expectionaly when they watch Gator Boys all the time.

I have always wanted to see this park I am so glad we wentWe took a narrated boat tour there are lots of boats so you do not have to wait for ever to take a ride.Our guide was very knowledgable as well as entertaining .We were told what to look for and of course the safety percautions .The guide knew just where we could see the alligators we were very excited .There was school tours for children I thought that was great.There were lots of exotic birds ans we even saw some fish .The airboat ride was an hour it just flew by our guide kept us entertained.There was a free show after the ride where you could see the gators up close what I like the most about this attraction is they let you ask questions and they knew so much.there was a gift shop food and clean ret rooms .I would definately recommend this tour on your visit to Ft.Lauderdale

I didn't realize the place was so small. The airboat ride was very neat. But you could tell that at some point they have to feed the gators. A few smaller ones follow the boats and came directly at us. They weren't there to be petted lol. Wild animals come to you to a. eat you or b. be fed. The constant tip badgering does get on your nerves. There are tip jars and signs everywhere, we get it.

Here is a suggestion, charge a real admission, and stop begging for donations. Also, Chris happened to do the gator show that day. Paul made an appearance for about 2 minutes, and Chris needs some new one liners. There was no one watching the gate, so people just walked in whenever they wanted disrupting the show, which was very short. Everything you see on the show, is exactly what you get. So if you follow the show, you've seen it all already.

I was disenchanted. You must purchase the airboat ride in order to see the gator show. There is not a lot of organization going on. It makes me wonder who's running the show. And when I asked them how the rescue in Mississippi went they said "I have no idea". Which means part of the story line is BS anyway.

We really enjoyed the airboat ride with Captain Rocky, very entertaining, fun, and we saw several wild alligators and tons of birds. Even thought the weather was a little chilly, the roof on the airboat kept us from freezing. We also really liked the service of the driver from Bosnia who brought us to the park in his SUV, and gave us a brief tour of the Russian section of Hallendale Beach after the boat ride.
