Though the park appears to be a bit neglected, the tour made up for that impression. Airboat was noisy but earplugs were provided. The boat trip was a bit short but one got the "feel" of the everglades while skimming through the waters and tall grasses.. Several in our party held the baby alligator. All in all it was worth the time and the fee.

“cold day at everglades”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Air boat ride was a little short - but fun, saw alligators in the wild. Park was nicely kept up. Gator show was disappointing because of the weather being a little chilly for the reptiles - they didn't really want to perform so the guide did his best to be informative and entertaining without a willing cast.

“Exceeded expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

We did this as an excursion at the end of a cruise arranged by the cruise line. It was excellent. The airboat ride was a lot of fun..very smooth ride not bumpy at all. The driver pointed out numerous wildlife including birds and gators...Our first time seeing them in the wild it was great!
After the boat ride we had a chance to walk around the little gator zoo, and then there was an educational show.
We really enjoyed the day. This is good for all ages with or without children. We are a middle aged empty nest couple who were traveling alone. There were people of all ages and everyone had smiles on their faces.

“Great excursion from Carnival”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

We had a very good time. The boat ride was a little short, but it was really cool to see the alligators. My daughter held the baby Alligator and loved it! For me this was a very unique experience and I enjoyed it. I felt like lunch was a little expensive for what you got.
THE BONUS is if you do this after your cruise you get a free trip with your luggage to the airport.

“Fabulous day out.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Having been on an "everglades" trip near Naples a couple of years ago we knew what to expect.We decided on the private tour for four of us and this was well worth the cost.($180 after senior discount).Knew what to expect -yes but this was so much better.Starting with Captain Joe who certainly knew the area and its wildlife backwards.So much to see and be shown with an excellent explanation of the everglades ecosystem.There seemed to be alligators everywhere along with turtles and birds.Our trip lasted around 50mins.and was worth every penny.We unfortunately didn't have time to avail ourselves of the other attractions but this gives us another reason to return when we visit Miami again.
