Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Enjoy an exciting Florida Everglades airboat adventure on this tour from Fort Lauderdale to Everglades Holiday Park. Your expert guide will navigate you through wetlands and point out alligators and other wildlife in their natural habitat. Follow your airboat tour with a live alligator show! Round-trip hotel transport is included.
  • Travel by airboat to reach a remote, swampy landscape
  • Chance to spot alligators and other wildlife in their natural habitat
  • Alligator show features traditional alligator wrestling
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Fort Lauderdale hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Fort Lauderdale, and set out to a site at the edge of the Everglades to start the airboat tour. Speed across the water in a fan-propelled airboat, and see the wetlands where alligators thrive along with fish, turtles, and wading birds. The captain pauses the tour at strategic spots, so you can watch the alligators as they swim, feed, or sunbathe in a pristine setting and then steer you back to the airboat base camp for the alligator show. Alligator handlers introduce the alligators, share facts and information about the ancient creatures, and demonstrate alligator wrestling, a longtime tradition in Florida swamps and the Everglades. Following the alligator show, this adventure concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

The tour was not in an airboat like in the picture, that is what I really wanted. That being said, the Swamp Thing Captain Cody was amazing and super knowledgeable about the area.

Disappointed to be packed into a large boat rather than smaller boats. The trip itself had no thrills as we did not travel a speed despite being warned to hold onto our hats etc. The alligator “show” was better than expected and very informative.
