Gator Park, Miami

3.7
#5 of 40 in Wildlife in Miami
Explore the wetlands of the Everglades and observe wildlife in its natural habitat at Gator Park. The center offers a variety of tours on its fleet of airboats, a well-known symbol of the region. As you speed along through the tall grass, you'll have the chance to spy fish, snakes, birds, and, of course, some of the area's 200,000 resident alligators. Back at the facility, get an even more up-close look at creatures that call the park home, as well as a few exotic animals, such as lemurs. Don't miss the wildlife show, where you can watch alligator wrestling and even hold a baby gator. For group tours, book ahead online as they must be specially arranged and can fill up quickly. A visit to Gator Park represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Miami attractions planner to plot your vacation.

  • Perfect tour for young families. We had a 3, 4 and 9 year old. The boat ride was fun, we got so close to animals (including alligators!) And we loved the informational show as well. Short and sweet!
  • We loved it here. Tour through the Everglades was great. Our guide was really nice and he knew a lot. Saw lots of alligators that day. The show was really funny. Otter John did a great job! We would definitely come back and recommend this tour to anyone who's staying in the area!
