First time to Florida and had to go to the Everglades... The van picked us up at our hotel and we were entertained on the 45min ride by Gator Boys shows. Once we arrived had a complimentary photo taken before getting on the airboat. Captain DJ worked hard at finding an alligator for us and low and behold one came... More

The boat was quite loud, but our our guide was great. He caught a fish with his bare hands, we saw several alligators, and he called a wild bird to the boat (Sweetie) and she came out of the marsh and to the boat to receive a snack. It was great to have access to the beauty of this park.... More

Our airboat tour guide, Captain Mark, clearly loves what he does! He made sure we all saw gators, iguanas, and several birds! Covered boats help with hot Florida sun. The gator show was great - interesting information about alligators and Paul was hilarious! (Note: our guide says Paul from "Gator Boys" show on Animal Planet does the shows on Saturday's... More

On my last day in Ft Lauderdale I decided to do this. The airboat ride was fun and worth it. We saw three gators, lots of wildlife including iguanas on the trees, and a wide variety of birds of varying sizes. Viewing the everglades itself was interesting too, seeing the waterways. Our guide calling one of the gators over and... More

My wife and I took our 2 year old for his very first airboat ride. He loved it. Everytime the guide stopped or slowed down to tell us about something my son would start yelling go!!! We carried clamshell style hearing protection for him. Because airboats are loud. He did get a little fussy toward the end because we didn't... More

My 5 and 3 year old boys loved this. Easy to get in and ride and very organized. Saw 4 gators during the ride and the kids loved how fast the boat went.

Great airboat ride and, yes, we saw gators and some pretty birds. Gator show was ok, shorter than I thought it would be.

Spend the extra money and do a private boat tour the cheap one for 60 minutes is crowded and is geared towards people that know nothing about nature and Florida wildlife. This place is the only sanctuary for gators and crocs found in the city because they can't be relocated

We had a group of 13 fresh off of a cruise and wanted to see the Everglades before we headed home. Everglades Holiday Park ended up being one of the highlights of the trip. We saw several alligators on the airboat tour and the show was fun! If you go to the snack bar... ask for Big Mike. Tell him... More
