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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2017

We were picked up on time at our hotel by guide Al who was engaging from the outset and got people talking. Bus was extremely comfortable with loadsa of leg room and good air on. On route to the park he showed Planet earth videos of the Gators boys. If not seen before it gave you an idea of the good work they do at the park.
When we arrived we saw a ' show' and were lucky to have Paul - the gator boys lead - giving the presentation.
We then went on the real highlight - the air boat. Fantastic. We had a guide / driver - think called maverick - he also volunteered as a snake hunter and had enormous knowledge of the park, animals gators and birds. He 'spotted' numerous gators and birds and got us very close taking time to ensure both sides of the boat had a view each time.
It was exilerating and a real highlight of our holiday.

This was a great trip! We were picked up at our hotel and driven to the Everglades. The guide for the tour was excellent, and the hour-long tour was fascinating. This is one of the few tours that lasts for a full hour, and you need every bit of that time to fully enjoy the Everglades. We say alligators and lots of wildlife. The alligator show was really great - very interesting and well done.

Lots of fun! The bus driver was friendly and it was an enjoyable bus ride there and back with timely pickup at our hotel. The picture taking by the facility was a very nice touch! The swamp boat ride was very interesting with an informative drive guide who found us a couple of wild alligators! Then watching the Gator Boy was a real treat! The snack bar afforded a much needed hot dog - delicious! All in all a wonderful way to spend our afternoon! We would highly recommend!

This was a great experience! Booking ahead of time was great so that we knew what our plans would be once we were in Fort
Lauderdale. The bus picked us up right on time at our hotel, the driver was friendly and courteous! The Everglades Holiday Park was
very organized. The boat trip was everything I thought it would be and was I surprised that it was even covered which was great to that
the sun didn't beat down on us. The driver was very informative and we did see wild life such as iguanas, turtles, vultures and
alligators! The alligator show was very good and the gift shop was a great place to pick up a souvenier and snacks. I was so happy how wonderful this experience turned out to be!

We saw a couple of adult alligators and a baby alligator. The scenery is beautiful. I suggest you take ear plugs because the air boat motor can get quite noisy. The boats are covered so you don't have to worry about the sun.

Al, our tour guide took care of us! Our flight was late so we'd miss our scheduled tour and Al arranged it so we could take a later one. He was great. Enthusiastic, shared excellent info about gators, and made the trip there and back fun - he picked us up at our hotel. The airboat ride was exciting and fun.

Our driver was very funny and accommodating. We were picked up from our hotel and all new passengers were introduced to those already on board. The park itself was amazing. We saw at least 3 adult gators and a baby gator named Putt Putt, not to mention fish and other awesome wildlife. Well worth it.
