An Everglades VIP Tour is the perfect introduction to America's largest subtropical wetlands! Enjoy round-trip transportation to a day of fun in the Florida Everglades.

Before climbing aboard an airboat, a professional grade Kodak *group photo will be taken of you and your accompanying guests. This photo will be printed for you to take home and memorialize your Everglades experience. Climb aboard a state-of-the-art airboat and fly across the 'River of Grass' at top speeds on this tour through the Everglades. Navigated by your expert Gladesmen captain, this airboat tour brings you deep into the 'Glades to see alligators and an abundance of flora and fauna in their natural habitats. This 60-minute tour is the longest airboat ride in the Everglades!

After taking in the sights and scenes of the Everglades on your airboat tour, enter the world famous Gator Pit for a alligator show presented by the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team from Animal Planet's hit television series. The Gator Boys show off amazing stunts such as "Bulldog" and "Faceoff" while educating audiences on the American alligator and the importance of preserving America's largest subtropical wilderness - the Everglades.

After your Everglades adventure, stop by the Gator Bites Cafe for a full service menu catering to anyone's dietary needs (not included). The general store is fully stocked with cold beverages, bait and tackle in case you and your guests feel like adding a fishing expedition to your Everglades expedition. Commemorate your visit to the Everglades by stopping by the gift shop for a gator tooth necklace and stop by the Gator Tooth Photo Booth to have your professional grade Kodak *group photo taken and printed to remember your fun-filled day!

*Limit, 1 free group photo per group
