  • This is a a wonderful place for family to visit. Glasses and sun cream is highly suggested since this is an outdoor event. 
  • 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
  • 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
  • Awesome value per dollar. You get the more than half an hour tour with cool facts about the everglades and alligators, acces to the little zoo they have and seeing the baby alligators. Its all included. Staff is very nice and they care for the animals.
  • An ok experience with airboat ride and tiny zoo. However the airboat ride is just next to the highway so it never feels like being deep inside the swamp of Everglades and the zoo are is very tiny.
  • While I was house sitting in the Tampa Area, I had a chance to come down to South Florida for a few days and one of the most fun things I did was take a nighttime adventure tour through the Everglades. I am not much of an adrenaline person and I don't do much that is exciting so this was a bit outside the norm for me and I have to admit I was a bit nervous. No need. It was amazing. I had so much fun. The captain was so engaging and funny. He took special care of all of us, making us feel engaged and showed us around the swampy zones. Would ride through Sawgrass Recreation Park on a airboat tour again if I ever was down in that area again.
