Set off on a guided trip from Miami to discover Florida’s wildlife. Enter Everglades Holiday Park to enjoy a 45-minute airboat ride and an educational wildlife show. Benefit from skip-the-ticket-line entry and receive a free photo of your group.

Head to the airboat to begin your guided cruise through the Everglades. Keep watch for native wildlife as your experienced guide will point out alligators, soft-shelled turtles, and birds in their natural habitat. 

Next, see a wildlife show and get up close with alligators. Learn how these reptiles — who were once nearly hunted to extinction — made a dramatic recovery in numbers. Even take a photo with a baby alligator at the end of the show.

Great trip overall. A good experience seeing Gators in the wild & other animals too. Felt a little rushed, which is why we haven’t rated 5*. The tour is only 45 mins/1hour and the show is 20 mins. Driver was good as was the guide on the boat who was knowledgeable and funny.

A good Everglades experience, fairly easy and quick journey to get there and back. Not too expensive. Didn’t feel the alligator show was necessary, we were uncomfortable watching the host do tricks with alligator. We would rather have spent more time on the water seeing the wildlife in its natural habitat.

Very good release! The organization at the start was a mess. We had to show our electronic tickets to the person with the TPE who gives you a receipt and then get on the bus. Our driver Santiago was very friendly, he played his role as a guide to perfection. Only downside the audio volume of the tracks launched in the bus, it was very strong. But top driver. The must: the hydrofoil tour. We were able to observe the alligators, the fauna and flora which is incredible and the many birds present on the site! Then, a little show with a man and crocodiles (very nice too) attention to understanding the rate of speech in English was important. But it's crazy what man can do with this animal! Finally, you have the option of whether or not to take a photo with a baby crocodile. The picture is free. We left at 2 p.m. as indicated in the activity and returned at 6:30 p.m. (2 possible stops: downtown and Miami beach).
