After a morning hotel pickup in the Miami area, it’s off to one of the most beautiful and unique places on earth — the Florida Everglades, a 1.5-million-acre wetlands preserve on the southern tip of Florida — for an exciting airboat adventure and nature tour.
On this guided, 30-minute 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. It’s wet, it’s wild and it’s loads of fun.
Then spend a 1.5 hours at Everglades Alligator Farm. Walk along a jungle trail to see the alligators, crocodiles, caimans and other wildlife. Check out a great exhibit of local and exotic snakes. And take in an alligator education seminar as experts describe all aspects of these creatures, the largest reptiles in North America. See the primitive capturing techniques once used by Native American Indians. This 4.5-hour tour ends with a hotel drop-off in Miami.

Was okay, but honestly I was expecting much more, because the tour was too short for its price.

6 hours of my life i'll never get back!
The actual Everglades part was OK - the guides were knowledgeable, and as expected from other reviews - only saw a lot of water, grass and not really much wildlife. The information from the captive stuff was interesting, but was standard stuff from the internet or Utube. Toilets at the centre really really need a re-vamp, as does the café. But all in all not a bad 90 mins.

HOWEVER - getting to and from the place using Grayline transport was enough to tip the most patient of people over the edge!! Everyone was clearly given pick up times and venues, and these had been repeated in emails and on vouchers - but each time we arrived at a point the woman escort disappeared off sometimes for 15 minutes to go and find people who had not bothered to turn up on time. The worst set of travellers from the Miami Marriott were still eating breakfast whilst we sat waiting, so we left, did two more pick ups and then

Interesting but not spectacular. Did not see a lot of wild life and boat ride was not very long. Most of the time we were left to wander and check out the alligators through the fence.

This tour was really awesome. I was picked up at Bayside right at 10:15 and we were on our way to the everglades. It was about an hour drive with the other stops we had to make. Once we were there, we had a few minutes before the airboat tour departed. The airboat was so much fun! You have to wear ear plugs and I recommend sitting on the sides if you can, it will be harder to see if you sit in the middle. Right as we left the main area we saw two alligators up on land and a turtle sitting on a branch. Once in the open water we saw a huge alligator swimming, on the banks there was a mama alligator on her nest, and heading back to the main area there was a smaller alligator swimming. The airboat driver was really funny and he gave a lot of good information on the types of birds, fish, and insects we saw. After the airboat we went on to the alligator show where there were 3 more alligators and a snake. After the show, you could hold a baby alligator and get your picture with him for 3. You take the boardwalk back to the main area and along that there are more alligators enclosed. The bus left back to Miami at 1:30 and the way back was less than an hour. Don't forget to bring sunscreen and bug spray!

The Trip was very good........ the tour of the Everglades was as advertised, about a 30 minute airboat ride. Quite thrilling and worth the price of admission. The bus driver was on time and courteous when we were picked up from Downtown Miami. The return trip was also pleasant, and the driver dropped us off at a different location which helped... My basic beef that prevents this trip from being a 4 or 5 star trip was the fact that I was wither mis-lead or naive in thinking we'd enter the Park Boundaries next to the National Park visitor center. We never visited the Official Park Visitor center that was a bid minus. We missed out on the official park Exhibits, movie, and walking trails into the everglades. This boat area-tour, is privately run, and about 30 minutes east of the Official National Park Visitor Center.

The tour itself was very nice... Guides were pleasant and informed. Learned a bunch of stuff about Gators and Crocs... Only draw back was the length of the bus ride to and from. Would have been better if we had some narrative during the trip as we drove all around Miami picking up and dropping off people.

Great trip, must see whilst in miami! Our air boat tour guide was Great, very enthusiastic and informative. We ended up being on the boat for around 45 mins which was great! Bring some money for a tip. Warning - if getting the bus from north miami/sunny isles it will be a LONG day!

2 hours each way on a bus stopping at every hotel made it a waist of a day. So 4 hours of driving that could have been a 30 min trip.
