Of course the alligators must have been on vacation somewhere else, as we only got to see just two of them. Bubba was a nervous critter, and a bit suspicious that our group invaded his space! Don't know the name of the other gator we saw, but it also was watching the boat's every move! Read Less

Rented a car and drove to Sawgrass Mills Recreation Park for a air boat ride. Location is a fast 25 minutes drive from the port and we saw 3 adult alligators. Location also has a animal area with other animals to view.

Got a lot for your money. One group picture before the airboat ride, an hour long airboat ride, gator show, and group photo with baby gator. I was slightly disappointed by the airboat ride, we didn't go far into the everglades and we didn't receive much history on the area, but we did see about 5-6 gators. Read Less

We chose this excursion for our last day, because we disembarked at 8:30 AM and our flight home didn't leave until 8 PM. We are glad we did because it was a very interesting tour and we had never been to Fort Lauderdale before. We were one of the first off the ship because we were on this excursion, and the bus was waiting for us, and took all of our luggage so we could enjoy the day. We visited the Sawgrass Recreation Park, which included an air boat ride through the Everglades grass lands, where we saw several large alligators. Wow. Then we visited their exhibits, where we saw more alligators up close, held a baby alligator, and learned more about the animals this sanctuary has rescued. At the end the bus took us right to the airport. Well worth a trip. Read Less

Good when your have time before your flight. The ride on the Everglades was good. We saw one aligator... The aligator show was short and not very instructive. The botanical garden was nice, but DON'T take the train ride : the driver talks to herself, so when she points out something, an animal or a tree or... it is not there when you arrive at that place, and when you are at that place, she is already describing something else... very confusing! Walk in the park, it is more enjoyable! Read Less

While in FLL we went to the Everglades Holiday Park for an airboat ride and to see alligators, my 11 year olds birthday request. It was a great time, we booked the VIP tour they picked us up and returned us to the hotel. The airboat ride was super fun and the captain very knowledgeable and entertaining. The ride was about an hour long zooming around the glades we saw 5 alligators and many different birds in the wild. It was overcast and cool by Florida standards and the captain was surprised we saw that many gators. After the ride there was a short alligator show. The park is owned by the Gator Boys guy from TV, he did the show himself. Well worth the price. Read Less

Tour only spent 30 minutes on an airboat which was not enough time to see anything. Even the tour guide said he couldn't believe it was only 30 minutes. Such a beautiful place but I was very frustrated because we were rushed so much! The Flamingo gardens is the most beautiful place and we only had 1 hr there to explore! TThis place is huge and full of most beautiful plants you will ever see and amazing animals but it was rushed once again and i was regretting spending a lot of money for our family to be on this tour and not seeing more a lot more! I wished we did it on our own at our own pace! If you can do these two parks on your own! Read Less

What a joke! You follow other airboats in a single circle, see 2 or 3 alligators and back to another area to see someone yank a crocodile to a sandy area, sit on it, and pull his jaws open. $118.00 JOKE
