See Florida’s famous alligators up close in their natural environment at Everglades Holiday Park, home to the Animal Planet’s "Gator Boys.” An exhilarating airboat ride with an onboard guide takes you into the open Everglades. The captain will stop at remote spots alligators are known to frequent. Keep quiet and wait for wildlife to emerge. Back at the park, you can watch an alligator show and learn more about these remarkable creatures. Grab a bite at the snack stand--frog legs or gator bites if you’re feeling adventurous.

  • Boat ride was fun! The guides do there best to make sure everyone on the boat gets to see the alligators when you happen to see one... they make the ride fun and have good jokes. Animal encounter was also worth it to see the animals up close.. we were told 5 animals and only got to see 4, however it was a great time. The gator show was also very fun and the guy was hilarious!
  • It's the Everglades. Go there. Air boat tour was fun and informative. My tour guide knew her stuff! As a scientist, I kept my ear open to fact check - she was sharp and nailed it! The historical component was wonderful and fascinating. The gator show was a good time as well! I appreciated the emphasis on conservation and the humor.
