loved it! was fun and informative at the same time. We really enjoyed ourselves!
The trip is just as advertised! Our guide was fun and informative and he got us VERY close to the gators. It is wonderful that the wildlife in the encounter zoo are all rescues saved from being put down. The entire staff was great and answered every question with a smile except for the woman at the gift area in the zoo who couldn't be bothered to get her nose out of her computer. 30 minutes goes by fast yet it was enough and perfect for the kids attention span. Go for it!
Was a lot of fun and informative. A little dissapointed that we didn't see alligator in everglades but was worth the trip
Fabulous. Tour guide was wonderful, saw three alligators. Animal area was OK, but still enjoyable.
I would definitely recommend going on this airboat. It was a lot of fun seeing the alligators and turtles swimming up to the boat..
Very good. Easy check in process. Boat captain took us out and we immediately found some 'gators and a turtle. My grandsons were amazed! At the Wildlife Encounter, everyone got to hold a baby gator. Highly recommended.
excellent ride. We did not have to wait in line to get our tickets as we booked the trip in advance. The trip was very nice, lots of alligators, a turtle, fish and birds. The kids loved it. Well worth it!
We had a truly wonderful experience on the air boat with a knowledgeable and entertaining boat captain / guide. We were fortunate to see a territorial standoff between two male alligators, an even that could not have been planned. The attached animal sanctuary helps to remind us of the importance of these beautiful creatures to our ecosystem.
Excellent trip. Gerald, our guide was friendly, humourous and very knowledgable. He had a passion for his environment. great value for the money.
we had a lot of fun! although very short, was well worth it. the guide was very knowledgeable. the alligators were impressive!
It is a great place to take kids. The price is reasonable and the air boat ride was excellent
Cap.Charles. answered many questions as an expert. He found one old gator we got close enough to snap some awesome movies.
This was very nice airboat adventure in Florida swamp. The boat captain had great experience and made fun. Our 5 and 6 yr kids liked this special trip. We were lucky to see three 9-10 ft alligators!
Tour was great, would love to have seen more than 1 Croc though.
I thought the tour and exhibit was great! It was an inexpensive experience for my friends and I that we all walked away from satisfied.
It was awesome!!!! Fun for the whole family! The alligators were out and our airboat guide was great! The ride was so much fun and the walk through Safari was amazing! We loves getting our picture holding the baby gator! Money well spent making family memories to last a lifetime!
Good experience. A lot of different animals. Ride was nice and beautiful. Wish we could have gone faster!
The boat ride was lots of fun and our guide was very smart---she knew where the wildlife were and gave us a chance to get some great pictures ! I checked on other airboat rides--this was more bang for your buck :)
This is an encounter that's been on our bucket list for years and it was well worth the wait. The Airboat Adventure was great. We had a guide who was extremely knowledgeable and who was able to maneuver the airboat very close to the alligators so we were able to get good pictures. It was a very clear and sunny day so we did see a very large number of alligators.
After the airboat adventure, we ventured through the animal/reptile exhibits which was interesting and informative.
Great value for the price of the excursion but we've come to expect that from Viator. We've utilized their services in numerous countries.

We were in Fort Lauderdale for one day prior to boarding a cruise ship, and I failed to plan ahead and book plans for that day. Fortunately we were able to get on this tour with only a couple of hours notice. Since we are from Washington state we thought it would be interesting to see alligators in the wild and see some of the swamp area while in Florida. This tour was excellent, no complaints. The guide was interesting and we got to hold a baby alligator at the end. Although if I ever come back I would prefer to take a longer and more in depth tour this one was still perfect. Thanks for accomodating us last minute!
Great trip with a knowledgable captain (Captain Al)! Smooth and relaxing airboat ride through the Everglades. We were lucky enough to see 3 gators! Recreation park was very nice, although some of the gators looked sad in their enclosures. Overall great value and friendly staff. Would do again!
