Reviewed January 15, 2013

Good price, fun visit. We saw real gators in the wild and my daughter got to hold a baby alligator for a picture. If you've never been on a fan-boat ride, this is the place. It had better reviews than the other parks.

“Best Everglades Tour”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is the second Everglades trip I have done and this was by far the best! We booked the trip through the Norwegian Epic cruise ship. The airboat trip was excellent lots of wildlife birds and we saw lots of alligators. The airboat actually went over the tops of the everglades grass which was cool!

At the end of the airboat trip they had an Alligator show that was very informative and the trainer actually gets in with the Alligators and feeds them and gets way to close. Best alligator show I have seen! I'm surprised he's still got all 10 fingers!

“Everglades safari park”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you are looking for an extensive fanboat tour, do your research. The cheap tours seem to have 20+people in large fan boats and you only get to enjoy 30 minutes or so on the boat.

“Fun and Educational”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Had a fun time for and afternoon at this Park. The Airboat ride was smooth and we saw many creatures while out and about. The guide was funny and had a ton of informative highlights for us. The presentation was also informative and we did not feel rushed or like the guides were annoyed by all our questions!

“Fun way to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Admission to the Everglades Safari Park includes an airboat ride through the Everglades. The tour guide was good and gave out a lot of interesting information about the area. We saw several alligators while on the boat ride. After you get back from that, you get to see an alligator show, or more accurately - a presentation. The park employees talk to you about several resident alligators and interact with them. This is really fun because the alligators actually recognize and react to the employees. The guy that did our presentation was able to put his hand in the alligator's mouth. Our kids were amazed! The kids then had their photo made with a baby alligator. There is a $3 charge for this, but it is something they will always remember. All in all, a good value and a lot of fun.
