Full description

Discover the Everglades National Park, a diverse landscape providing crucial habitats for numerous rare and endangered species. Take an airboat ride, and view alligators, turtles, and even the elusive Florida panther. 

After paying the park admission fee, immerse yourself in swampland often referred to as the River of Grass. The park known as such because of the endless prairies of sawgrass that rise three to ten feet above the surface of the water.

Encounter lush vegetation of the Everglades which also includes mangroves, cypress, palms, pines, and hardwood hammocks (small islands). The sawgrass is often so dense that travel is only possible through natural water passages.

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.

Complete your visit with a wildlife and alligator show. Get up close with these remarkable creatures in their natural habitat.

I booked the trip the day before and we went there in the morning. "Gator Park" is right next to a main road and looks a bit unassuming. The airboat tour was really cool and fast (also thanks to the guide "Dan"). The subsequent crocodile show was very informative and well staged. The whole thing lasted "only" an hour, but it was totally sufficient. A little hint. Rather drive there. By the time we left, the parking lots were exploding and the crowds poured into the Little Park.

A very refreshing experience in the summer heat. The boatman answered all questions and took the time to answer them. In addition to a young, brooding alligator lady, we were also able to see an alligator swimming right past the boat. The animal show afterwards is recommended. It's worth the wait!!

I had read a lot of bad reviews about this activity, but honestly, our experience was great, we saw several alligators, the guide was charming and ran a lot through the water, which made it a lot of fun, the show was also very entertaining. My children were also delighted with it, a totally different experience and 100% recommended.
