Gator Park, Miami

3.7
#5 of 40 in Wildlife in Miami
Explore the wetlands of the Everglades and observe wildlife in its natural habitat at Gator Park. The center offers a variety of tours on its fleet of airboats, a well-known symbol of the region. As you speed along through the tall grass, you'll have the chance to spy fish, snakes, birds, and, of course, some of the area's 200,000 resident alligators. Back at the facility, get an even more up-close look at creatures that call the park home, as well as a few exotic animals, such as lemurs. Don't miss the wildlife show, where you can watch alligator wrestling and even hold a baby gator. For group tours, book ahead online as they must be specially arranged and can fill up quickly. A visit to Gator Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miami attractions planner to plot your vacation.

  • I thought it was horrible but the kids liked it. We took a big boat, no queue, got to come by quickly. We got to see many alligators as well as birds and turtle etc along the way. We went quietly some parties and at full speed (High engine noise!) with cord... Feels not quite serious, very touristy which was expected, but the guide's joke... The alligator show after was surprisingly interesting liked the company, informative and timely long.

  • The airboat ride was nice. Not as noisy as others. Wildlife (including crocodiles and birds) are easy to spot. Also, Mr.Marian (the guy that drove the air boat) was super friendly and nice, and explai...  more »
  • The hydrofoil ride and not bad, we saw alligators and different birds a small corner of nature. We then saw the show, we learned all sorts of things about snakes, alligator and crocodile. Possibility to take a picture with a baby alligator muzzled for $3. Overall it was not bad I was happy to do it but I really had a heart ache for its animals that are in small cages and that are used and manipulated all day, especially the one that passes from hand to hand tourists.

  • Perfect tour for young families. We had a 3, 4 and 9 year old. The boat ride was fun, we got so close to animals (including alligators!) And we loved the informational show as well. Short and sweet!
  • We loved it here. Tour through the Everglades was great. Our guide was really nice and he knew a lot. Saw lots of alligators that day. The show was really funny. Otter John did a great job! We would definitely come back and recommend this tour to anyone who's staying in the area!
  • A fantastic air boat ride with very knowledgeable guides. We saw a lot of the animals living in Everglades. Only we are not fund of the gator shows which is why this is not a 5 star rating. We like to see the animals in their natural habitat not in shows. So we left without seeing that
  • What a wonderful adventure! Gator park was amazing and the staff were very knowledgeable on ALL things related to the Everglades. We will definitely go again! Thank YOU Gator Park!
  • It was a fun experience. My wife and I enjoyed the boat ride and I enjoyed asking the guide questions about the Everglades. Saw 8-10 alligators and other birds. The show after the airboat tour was informative/ very funny.
