    We were looking for something to do before our evening flight home. This was the perfect place to spend a few hours.

See crocodiles and alligators that only share a habitat in Florida, then learn more about these fascinating animals with an exciting animal show.

    We had a good time! It was not clear when booking that you would be on a shuttle bus with 75 other people and that you would spend 1 additional hour each way picking up and dropping off the other passengers. We booked our ticket with a transportation from our hotel. Just be sure when you book this option you know it is not a private car service to the Everglades. Other than the wasted 2 hours picking up and dropping off other passengers it was a good excursion. Thank you.
