“Lot's of fun!”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

This airboat trip was really fun. It's unusual to see an alligator this time of year but we did see one. Our guide knew a spot that a gator has been seen and she drifted in and it actually came out to us. The ride was worth the trip all on it's own. After the airboat ride there is a short alligator show and pictures with a baby gator. You can wander around the small park and see other gators that are confined in their natural habitat. There is a grill type restaurant which had very good food and a well supplied gift shop. I read the reviews from the other airboat attractions and found this one to be the best. I agree with the other folks that this is worth the time and money. We booked a trip that included pickup and delivery from our hotel. This was also very good. It did take about and hour and half to get out to and from the Everglades due to the hotel pickup process. The guide said that the best time to actually see wild life is winter and spring when the water level is lower.

“Tourist trap”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

We took a tour with transportation that picked us up at the bayside market. We then had to go on to pick up people on Miami beach. It finally took us more then an hour to get there. The visit there is really quick, it lasted one hour.... The boat tour was about 20 minutes and we did not see anything... No alligators, no turtles, no birds... Deception. Then after you see a 5-10 minutes show where a guy talkks about the gators and feed them. Then there's an optional "hold the baby gator and take a picture" thing, 3$ per person... Then you have almost half an hour left to visit a tiny store to buy tourist crap or to eat at the expensive restaurant :) After that, 45 minutes to come back....

Well, I don,t really know if I would have done it knowing that...

“Always wanted to ride on an Airboat”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

My wife and I arrived and before riding the airboat had a small picnic on the tables in front of the building. We then bought our tickets (coupons available on their website) and boarded the boat. The guide was very entertaining and we thoroughly enjoyed the ride. We did get to see some alligators and birds in their natural habitats. To be honest the time flew by and before we knew it we were back at the starting point. We then followed the boardwalk walking trail to the alligator show and on into the glades. Overall we spent a couple of hours there and could have stayed longer if we had had the available time. Well worth the money spent.
