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.

Good trip and worth money. We even saw a few gators. The bus ride was a bit bumpy and not as smooth but once we got to the national park it was good. The online chat customer service is great and very responsive which i love. So thank you!

Even though we only saw a small aligator, it was a fantastic run with a very informative guide who knew everything about Everglades and the environment.

Such a great experience! Stephen was our guide and he was fantastic! I would definitely recommend this airboat ride!

Very good experience! Both the airboat tour and the wild life show were very good.
