If you come to Miami, Florida I recommend this place. I went with my husband and we had a blast, you travel in a boat around part of the everglades and you have the chance to see a lot of huge gators, you also can take a picture with a baby gator and watch a show. This place is good... More

Costing $25 per person but well worth it. Our guide was very knowledgeable and was happy to share it with us. Saw quite a few alligators and a number of different birds. Enjoyed the 45 minute ride with a few twists and turns and getting sprayed a bit! The show afterwards was interesting and you could touch a python or... More

We went on a smaller airboat, and are glad we did. The big ones would be less personal and less maneuverable (so less excitement and fun). Earplugs provided - thanks! they are needed. Cruising over the grassy shallows and spotting the birds in the brush and along the edges was great. We got close to big and baby alligators (keep... More

After debarking from a cruise my family and I decided on this excursion since our flight didn't leave until later in the day. There was a large charter style bus w/restroom waiting for us, and included people flying out of MIA and FLL. The tour guide was an older gentlemen and very monotone. He was nice and pointed out all... More

The starting location looks very nice, and you can see a few alligators (at least I saw 3 before getting on the boat). The boat captain was nice, he had some funny jokes and was doing his best to entertain us. The Everglades itself is a great place, so visiting a tiny bit of it is a great start. Along... More

It is one of a must to see when visiting Florida. Knowledgeable guides, well organized tours and a LOT of crocodiles, alligators, birds and speed sliding over the water.
