What people are saying about Fort Lauderdale
-Everglades Holiday Park, The park is currently under construction so it felt a little Tiger Kingy like when we arrived, but everything was very professional when you got a closer look -Airboat Ride, we had a great guide that spotted multiple gators for us and informed us about everything, he circled back so both sides of the boat saw the wildlife multiple times. Some other boats just sped along though, so your luck really just depends on your guide. -Gator show, was a little rushed. Only like 10 minutes long, only 2 tricks performed but pretty informative. -Bus, Our instructions said to meet at Soundscape park, so we took an Uber from Bayside Marketplace to Soundscape, only to be informed we were picking up the other half of our group from Bayside Marketplace. That wasn't an option when we booked our tour. The bus was cold like all the other reviews say. I'm pretty sure our bus driver left people behind since they weren't back to the bus in time. So pay attention to the time.
After a false start when the bus doors would not shut and a long delay without any communication from the tour operators and we were left in limbo we eventually changed bus much to the annoyance of the travellers on the second bus who were required to get off so that those on the first bus could get on and start our tour (first come first served) we then started our tour which turned out to be a drive to the Everglades park a 30 minute airboat ride which was enjoyable followed by a 15 minute alligator show which was not very active followed by a drive back to South Beach. So an apparent 4 hour tour was cut short by nearly an hour because of the problems with the bus
The driver was friendly and gave a great talk about the history of the region on the drive to the Alligator Safari. The time at the safari park was super rushed with barely enough time to go to the washroom, jump on the 20 minute airboat ride, stand in line to get a picture with a baby alligator before having to jump back on the bus. No time to look at the rest of the park.
It was my first time fishing the ocean or even being on the ocean in a boat. The staff was super friendly and very helpful. Even though I only caught one fish it wasn’t their fault. Everyone around me was catching fish. They put us on fish and told us how to do it, what to feel for, took the fish off for us. It was a good time.
Excellent trip! A few friends and I went out for a half day and I’ve never seen a black fin so big! The captain knew exactly where to go and the deckhand didn’t miss a beat and got us dinner for a few days
