  • Have always wanted to go to the Everglades and ride on the airboat - must be the TV of my childhood - and our ride did not disappoint. Not only did we see alligators, but we also saw turtles, fish, lo...  more »

  • Got a great deal on groupon that worked out about $11 per person. Plus when we got there half of our group was given annual pass to go back any time during the year. Tour guide was super cool, funny and entertaining.
  • Prices are reasonable for the experience you get. Had the luck to see a really big alligator hunting and eating a turtle. Simply impressing. Our tour-guide (Captain Disco) gave good explanations and had some interesting background information about the Everglades ecosystem. Plus even my less-than-fluent-in-english girlfriend understood everything he said. Tickets for the airboat-tour include access to the park's small zoo. Apparently most of the animals there were saved from horrible conditions, but the cages and displays should really be bigger.
  • Gift shop has awesome stuff. The time in the boat tour goes by so fast, needs to be a bit longer. Gators swam around the boat, cool and scary at the same time. The animal exhibit was small but good. The gator show was neat.
  • me and the wife went last year came back this year with the grandkids they loved it great tours great boat captains who really take the time to make sure u see some gators great place great employees
  • Excellent guided airboat tour, hold on to your hat it gets loud and windy. I've taken family of thier tours twice and they were easily able to find wild alligators and turtles. They were fun and informative. There is a fun wildlife exhibit as well, be sure to check it out, it's included in the ticket price
