Visited the Everglades Safari Park as part of a broader tour. The first thing I thought that was cool was that there were alligators all over the area...small ones that weren't in cages. They were harmless once you just kept your distance. I loved the initial demonstration and show given at the start of the tour. Saw some tricks and... More

I’ve always wanted to take an air boat tour through the Everglades and finally had the opportunity to go with Safari Park. Alexander our boat driver and guide was excellent in his knowledge of the Everglades and the inhabitants who live there. His entertaining, fact filled guide through the park was excellent. We then went to the presentation on Alligators... More

Great ride on an airboat 25 $ pp for about 40 minutes , worth going to see , the driver was good and friendly unlike the rest of the staff who seemed to act like frustrated police with a very unwelcoming approach then expected a tip. May be 2 things are related ?

When i came to Miami, one of the main reasons was that i wanted to visit the everglades. The air boat ride was what i had hoped it would be, but only lasted an hour, i would have like longer out there, and to have done a few more faster bits, as well as the slower bits where you try... More

We had a great time here on the air boat ride. The guide was really enthusiastic and personable and yelled everytime there was an animal. We saw many alligators, turtles, birds, etc. The wild life show afterwards is great too and you can even hold a baby gator.

We enjoyed the air boat experience for the first time. The ride through the everglades was fascinating for the first time. We saw 2 gators hiding in the brush, but other than that there were more at the docking area of the air boats than what we saw in the actual everglades. The water level was still okay for the...

That nice sunny afternoon we decided to do something different, instead of going, to a movie or going to the shutting range, we decided let's take a boat ride into the Florida Everglades. Boy was that fun. We had a great and very funny and informative conductor or driver. He took us in deep into the everglades aand we were... More

Not worth it. I only imagine that they air boats have been through there so much the gators have moved. It was definitely NOT like what you see on TV. It's just a bunch of saw grass and other water growth, a couple of alligators. The ones that just couldn't get away or they were too old. You had to... More

This place was good value. We chose tour one which was $25 per person and included an airboat ride, an alligator show (where you can hold a baby alligator for $3) and then a walk around the park. To keep the prices down they use the larger boats but they also offer private tours on the smaller boats. The parking... More
