  • Feeding the baby alligators is a kick. They grunt and make a huge fuss when they hear you crank the quarter machine to get the food. Large feeding show interesting. The "nature" trail is very cool. We were lucky to see a crocodile on the airboat ride. We also saw a wild alligator beyond the outer fence. Explore everything to get your money's worth.
  • The Everglades alligator farm is a great place to spend the morning/afternoon. The park isn't very big but they got a good amount of animals. They do some shows which are definitely worth to visit, the entertainer was very friendly and answered all the questions the crowd had. The airboat tour is a lot of fun, first you 'fly' slow to see some wild alligators but after the pilot will give more gas. If you are in the front you will definitely get wet, so be careful! The park is a must visit when you visit Miami/Florida!
  • What a great place! I love it! Great airboat tour, a lot of animals in the park, and lovely staff. Highly recommended!
  • Great place to visit. They were very accommodating to a group of 19 Boy Scouts. All the boys really enjoyed it especially the airboat ride.
  • Absolutely great experience to see the wild animals in the nature. Also went around with a boat to get a feeling for the countryside. I recommend a visit one hundred percent!
