I visited the park today Jan 3rd 14, and it was an awesome experience. I got to know new things about gaters that I did't think of. The price is excellent, and not far from Miami. After the air-boat ride (with a knowledgeable and funny Captain), you head to a gator show and then take a walk to see other gators, and restaurant and souvenir place also in the park. Just wish the Gator show was longer.

We visited early december. The ride with the airboat is fun and fast.The female guide had a lot of knowledge and shared this with us. She genuine cared about the area and was very informative with stories on the plants and animals in the area and the eco system. We saw just hatched young alligators of a few days old. The big male alligator came around the airboat to protect the little ones. We saw several big turtles swimming 2 feet from the airboat and also more alligators when the clouds disappeared. For us this trip was really fun. We took some small bites in the restaurant, outside is impossible due to all the birds, but they are nothing special.

Visited Everglade with Coopertown airboats. Most of the thing was quite satisfactory, They accepted by coupon to include small rebate on ticket. The boat carry around 25 people. We were allowed to take picture with small gator after the boat ride.
Ride was good although we were only able to see 2 gator from a distance.

The airboat ride was amazing. Great sensation floating smoothly over the river of grass. We saw some beautiful birds and one small alligator - no turtles, no snakes, no big alligators. I thought it would also be educational, but the driver taught us little about the eco-system. He was more interested in collecting tips from the guests. The show was funny but short. Again, however, there was little education. Because it was so close to Miami, and such a nice drive, I recommend it, but it is not great.

(My kids of 8 and 10 loved the visit)

We went there through a typical Miami travel agent. It was a bit windy, nice day though.
I think we saw more gators at the roadside tunnel when we on route there than we actually saw during our airboat ride. Still nice to be on the airboat though.
