Great way to see the Everglades. The scenery is beautiful. When a gator is spotted the boat driver turns the boat so both the right and the left sided the boat can see. The engine are very loud though at high speeds. There are only 3 high speed runs. The rest the time you are slowly cruising the river for... More

Swampy J was awesome....totally worth the trip. He took the time to call out the gators and birds, and he ate a larvae.

I have been taking friends lovers and visitors to holiday Park for 20 years. I've been there by myself. While Florida's national park lacks the grandeur of the mountains and forests generally thought of when evoking national parks images - its river of grass is a magical wonder that for many requires focus to appreciate. Unfortunately, too many Floridians are... More

The airboat ride was fantastic. We got up close and personal with two different gators...literally within just a few feet. The captain was comical and knowledgeable. We attended the show afterwards. The volunteer gator trapper did a great job explaining the concept of trapping, and how showed us a few ways it is done. You can do this whole adventure... More

This was hands down the best time ever. It rained the entire time, but their boats are covered allowing us to stay dry. The captain's humor had us giggling the entire time. And we were able to see 7 or 8 good size gators plus other wildlife. The kids even learned a few things. We can't wait to do this... More

Booked a tour through the hotel, included transport from Miami beach which was about a hour, for 45 usd each, although we think you can get it for cheaper but was in a rush! The airboat tour we got lasted for one hour once you get to the park, our ticket also included a gator show which was about half... More
