Whether you are a local or a tourist this is a most do around Miami. Good for the whole family. For the boat ride price you also get to walk around the small park area where they have other animals. Definitely a FL experience you do not want to miss.

Booked this excursion through Carnival Cruise Lines as a post-cruise excursion, that also provided transportation to the airport. It is a delightful place. The air boat is an unique boating experience. Our captain was knowledgeable and gave us a good tour. We did indeed see quite a few alligator as well as an assortment of birds.

Booked this tour thru the cruiseline as a post-cruise excursion. Definitely worth the money as it included a pickup at the pier and a dropoff at either Miami or Ft Lauderdale airport. The tour itself was great. We had a great tour guide (Juan Carlos) who knew everything about the Miami area and the Everglades National Park. Tour took us... More

I can't give a fair review for the airboat rides available. But they looked great,the larger boats held a large group of people,and they also had the smaller airboats for more of a personal ride. We stopped for a break and something to eat on our way back from Ft Lauderdale to Naples. We decided to tKe the old Hyw... More

Genuinely enthusiastic guide on our boat. If you have never tried an air boat...GO! Fun ride, realistic price, got to see baby and adolescent alligators in the wild (not common at all). Great rush! The air boat experience is open, safe, stable and fun...

I was in Miami (with a rental car) for a couple of days prior to leaving for a cruise. We were looking for some fun ways to spend our time and came across this. It was the least expensive of all the other companies we found. When we arrived, we were quickly put onto a boat for the tour. We... More

with your family and children, you should spend half a day and visit here. Sightseeing inside the National Park in an airboat and realşzing wild life is fun. Also watching alligator show is interesting for kids.

I visited here with my son. The airboat ride was $23 for 40 min. Even though we were not able to see many alligators in the swamp, they had a lot in their farm. If the weather were good and you had plenty of time, visiting this place would be good for day trip.
