The Everglades!

We were taking 2 cruises out of Miami, back to back, and booked this for the day between cruises. What a great trip! They had a bus to the park that included a running commentary about Miami, the Everglades, and everything else local. Then we arrived and hopped on air boats. These are flat bottom bouts with a car engine... More

Went on a very crowded day, yet the airboat driver really went out of his way to give us a good ride. Plus, the gator demonstration and nature walkways are nice. Only problem, and it's not their fault, is that parking can be tough.

Because we had time after disembarking from a cruise ship and late evening flight, we decided to take an excursion to Everglades Safari Park. We climbed into the airboat and traveled through the Everglades. Our guide/driver stopped frequently to point out alligators and birds; he also gave information about the geography and history of the land. We viewed a number... More

It is easy to find and a great place to spend a couple of hours. We paid $25 each to go on a boat ride. there were only 10 of us on the boat and we were out for nearly an hour which was good value. Our Captain was very knowledgeable and we saw plenty of 'gators' lurking around. We... More

Bought this tour through viator and was part of a tour packages. The safari boat I'd ok, very noisy. Never seen any wild crocodiles only the ones in the cage. Thought it would have been more exciting.

We found it a bit pricey but the staff was crazy knowledgeable and kind so I guess you get what you pay for! We saw robbed of gators on our airboat tour and learned about the crazy vegetation in the Everglades as well (scary plants!), my kids pet a python and held a baby gator! So much fun and so... More

Husband wanted to visit here as he is obsessed with reptiles. Paid 25 dollars each and got a 40 minute airboat ride through the everglades and alligator show. Airboat ride was just amazing. Saw quite a few wild alligators and our guide was very knowledgable. Would visit again.

Feels very confined and not "wild". We felt sorry for the alligators here.. lots of them cooped up in a very small space (they usually have 1 square mile each in the wild!). The gator "show" was quite good but a bit disturbing in that the alligators in the show are somewhat domesticated.

What a beautiful December day to go on an airboat ride. I have been to this attraction a few times and it is always exciting. Some rangers are very knowledgable and make the experience exciting for children and adults.
