Everglades Holiday Park is a classic—if a bit kitschy—introduction to the Florida Everglades and its wild inhabitants. Geared toward the whole family and nicknamed the "Gateway to the Everglades," the 29-acre park has been entertaining and educating visitors for more than 30 years. Most famous for its guided airboat rides, Everglades Holiday Park is also the home to Animal Planet’s Gator Boys show.
On an airboat tour, see where Florida gators make their home and learn why it's so important to protect these areas. An experienced guide will point out some of the region's unique features, including wild birds, snakes, and other flora and fauna that are not found anywhere else in the United States.
As a working park and rescue operation, Everglades Holiday Park believes the best way to raise awareness about the importance of conserving natural wetlands is by allowing its visitors access to some of its best-known inhabitants. All the alligators featured at Everglades Holiday Park are natural inhabitants of the Everglades, or rescue animals, and their health and wellbeing is taken very seriously.
Everglades Holiday Park is located at the western end of Griffin Road, off U.S. 27. Admission includes an airboat tour, a gator show, and a group photo. While Viator does not sell these activities, animal encounters are available for purchase at the park for an additional cost of $99. Airboat tours operate daily, departing every 20 minutes during the park's opening hours. Children 3 years of age and younger enter free.
