Full description

Discover the Everglades National Park, a diverse landscape providing crucial habitats for numerous rare and endangered species and the premier location to view a variety of reptiles, including alligators, turtles, and even the elusive Florida panther. 

The swampland is often referred to as the River of Grass because it creates endless prairies of sawgrass that rise three to ten feet above the surface of the water. The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is only possible through natural water passages.

The lush vegetation of the Everglades also includes mangroves, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks (small islands). 

Ride on an airboat, which is designed to operate well in shallow water and marshlands. Propelled by an aircraft-type propeller and powered by either an aircraft or automotive engine, have a fast and fun journey.

The water is shallow enough in most places that you can stand in it so don’t be alarmed if your guide takes a quick dip during your tour.

Incredible experience! We saw a bunch of alligators, including a one year old and a two year old gator. The airboat ride was a lot of fun and the guide was very knowledgeable. The show afterwards was a nice plus and the guide for that show even took my phone and made a close up video of the gator and filmed the inside of his mouth. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience for my family and I.

Awesome time! Started with about a 30 minute airboat ride, where we saw a medium size gator and a baby one. They provide ear plugs, since it gets pretty loud when they're going fast. After the ride, the gator show is really interesting and entertaining for all ages. Would highly recommend! We had our kids ages 5-8 with us and they loved it.

The boat ride was fun and would be great for any age. We saw alligators,turtles,fish and different kinds of birds. The drivers were funny and answered questions. The show was good also we saw more alligator's, a baby alligator and a bird that took your tip for the show. Tom was funny and answered questions also.
