What You Can Expect

Florida Everglades Airboat Tour and Alligator Show from Fort Lauderdale

Alligator Experience

After a morning hotel pickup in Fort Lauderdale, it’s a brief 30-minute ride to Everglades Holiday Park in West Broward County for this 1-hour airboat tour.

On this guided excursion through the Everglades, skim along the grassy water while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, like alligators, fish, turtles and wading birds in their natural habitat, an exciting and unspoiled wilderness. The boats are covered to ensure comfort from the heat.

After the airboat ride, check out the 25-minute alligator show, with gator wrestling and plenty of facts and figures about alligators. If you like, take a memorable shot of you holding an alligator (don't worry, its mouth is closed shut), and then spend a bit of time at the Everglades Holiday Park General Store for souvenir shopping.

The tour concludes with a relaxing return trip to Fort Lauderdale.

Our driver was great to get there and the boat driver was wonderful. It just was not long enough I wanted more time our on the water. The show was ok you can tell he does the show a lot during the day and he seems bored.

The boat guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot to view in the safety of our air boat. The alligator wrestling was unique, and we were happy that the gator man did not loose any fingers....

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour! Our tour guide was very entertaining and informative. Loved the fact that we were promptly picked up right from our hotel. We were lucky enough to spot an alligator in the everglades! It was a great day.

so much fun! Our tour guide driving the air boat was awesome, entertaining, and clearly you could tell he loves his job!! Luck was on our side, as we managed to see an alligator. Lots of birds, and the day we went was great for weather. Would definitely go again, and recommend this to anyone..!!!

We were very impressed with this tour. We were collected by minibus from our hotel and our driver was most informative and friendly to all guests giving us an indication of what we were to experience by means of a most enlightening video. On arrival at the park we all had our photo taken as part of the overall cost. We were then introduced to our larger than life captain who gave us an indication of what we would see over the next hour. This turned out to be one of the best excursions we have ever done. Seeing alligators in their natural environment was awe inspiring and how our captain reacted to them was unbelievable. What a character he was. On return to the jetty we were taken to an enclosure inhabited by 20 alligators, all collected from peoples' gardens and pools. One of the female staff then walked into the pool and dragged one of the alligators out by the tail and then opened its mouth to show us the teeth. All done in a way not to upset the alligator but to show the visitors how alligators can be handled by experienced staff. A wonderful performance all round and one that I would highly recommend.
