There are a lot of airboat and aligator parks like this in the Everglades. We visited this one because of the discount coupons we had.The experience is great. The guide on the boat tells his story probably a hundred times a day, you can't mark it. The guide is enthusiastic, knows where the aligators are and will tell you things... More

As a long time visitor of Florida since 1991 we only visited the place for a new travel buddy. We had a blast! The crew is very motivated and the park is a great combination of a boat trip, alligator show and natur park. You can choose the size of the boat (smaller=more expensive). The bigger one is still good... More

I really did expect more for my money... They appear to have a great business and good for them, however I cannot help but wonder how many other people went there based on the glowing reviews found here. It was noted that you get a free florida gift in exchange for a good review (an alligator tooth in a bottle)... More

HI I am sorry you had a bad experience. What caught my attention is that you said "It was noted that you get a free florida gift in exchange for a good review (an alligator tooth in a bottle)". We do not offer an alligator tooth in a bottle or any type of free gift for a good review. Do... More

We bought a ticket for the Everglades Safari Park that was included as part of a tour package. The Gray Line bus picked us up at the Bayside Marketplace and drive us to the park. Once we arrived, we received stickers with a number and we had about 10-15 min wait to get into the boat. The boats are huge,... More

I've always wanted to visit The Everglades and I wasn't disappointed. The tour was great and we saw 3 gators and other wildlife. The guide was informative, funny and friendly.

For nature and animal lovers this is a Must when visiting Miami, Not that far and it's an amazing experience. First on those Boats where it looks like you are flying and then the little show with some reptiles makes it such a wonderful place to visit and have this experience.

We got there right before a storm was moving in but we were thankful it held off until a couple of hours later. We first went on the Airboat ride. Really you were expecting to see and hear more from the driver. The driver stopped after running about 10 minutes and gave about a 5-10 minute speech, then said lets... More

The first stop is an Indian reserve which was interesting to learn about the tribes out there (one guy was so cute!! First teepee hehe but he's engaged) then you take the airboat to a little plank where you can walk around and look at gators and other animals in the water. I would advise you to sit in the... More
