It is one of a must to see when visiting Florida. Knowledgeable guides, well organized tours and a LOT of crocodiles, alligators, birds and speed sliding over the water.

Everyone in our group - from our 5-year-old to my 60-year-old parents loved this experience. Even though it was cold by Miami standards (only 67 degrees!) we still saw quite a few gators on the Everglades tour. The tour guides and presentation guide were a little pushy on tipping, but overall we had an educational and enjoyable experience.

Captain Jason gave a superb private air boat tour! He stopped and identified birds and flowers and trees! Even telling us about an Indian food.... a Sawgrass root....that my husband ate. More than a boat captain, he loves the native wildlife! It was worth the extra money for a private boat. The last boats leave at 430pm, so plan it... More

This is our second time at this location. We come when we have out of town guests.. We have also done airboat tours before in Broward. If you are visiting South Florida an airboat tour is a great thing to experience. Really helps to understand the Everglades, one of the USA's largest national parks and the world's slowest river, as... More

We actually had called around and asked a competitor who we can contact for a short tour that we can drive over to. They said to use the Everglades Safari Tour. We really had a good time. The prices were decent for an hour and half tour, short show and walking the park. Tips are appreciated. We drove to the... More

Actually just stopped there to try out alligator meat. We skipped the attractions, as we already had had our tour in the swamp at another place. I ordered the Gator Salad, which basically was a basic salad with croutons and fried alligator meat. Tasted good in my opinion, so I was happy at least!

Just left a cruise on Miami and took the air boat tour option to kill time before flight . Staff was very knowledgeable about the Everglades . That combined with air boat made it exciting. 50 for a couple . They have a restaurant on site . About 30 min from MIA
