We went not knowing what to expect. Great attraction for the price! The airboat ride was about 1 1/2 hours, and Captain MT was great! He is very knowledgeable and threw bread out in the water to catch fish. He caught one with his bare hands! We saw quite a few gators and a few iguanas, as well! Chris Gillette... More

We went there because of the TripAdvisor rating. To start with the positive, the trip was well organised and there were due to sufficient capacities no queues. The 60 minute trip takes you through an open swamp area and was rather commercial / volume oriented. The boats can take 30 people or more. If you expect a more individual tour... More

On arrival it doesn't look very picturesque but it's quite a nice place to spend a few hours there. Boat ride which is about an hour is pricey and there is little else to do apart from walking and fishing. Fishing was fun with a spinning rod and there are lots of Bass and African Browns. A fresh water license... More

Everglades airboat ride was fantastic. Moved fast through the water then stopped right beside alligators and birds. The alligators swam right up to the boat. There is a show with alligators that was informative. The four year old with us held a boa and a baby alligator. Would recommend this for all ages.

We was trying to have a nice air boat ride with the alligator sightings and so on. We were not the "first time" tourist so we expected something else. Ride was too short at sllep pace and the only sight we had looked like an "animatronic" fron Disneyworld. Very disapointing but maybe you can get a better deal somewhere else.

I kind of didn't want to visit the park. You know, just in case I fall in the water. Well, there was no fear of that if you follow the instructions of your tour guide/driver. This park which I think is operated by the National Park Service is about 45 min away from Ft Lauderdale city center. The air boat... More

Well organized. Great up-close views of alligators. Covered boats good to avoid sun/rain. Cool show afterwards too.

If you are looking for something different to do it is A fun way to spend the afternoon. It is like a different world - just a 10 miles or so east is the beach - it seems like night and day. I have never taken the airboat ride but it looks fun - NATURE

I went on the VIP tour. They picked us up from our hotel in a comfortable van. I don't know which I liked better, the air boat or the show! Our guide on the air boat was so great! He knew exactly where to go to find the gators! We saw 4, and one of them even followed us for... More

Perfect for families with many ages. We learned about and saw alligators, various birds, and different types of flora. The airboats are cool and provide a nice way to see things in their natural habitat. Plenty of time for photos and observation. Alligator show afterwards was entertaining and educational. We had some nervous family members who ended up completely at... More
