Everglades Holiday Park reviews
We got there right at 9 on a tuesday morning for the 9:30 ride. We had planned it out so we would have time to catch the alligator afterwards, then head straight to the airport to catch our flight... more »
We did the Animal Encounter with Jenny. She was very nice and informative. You get to visit up close with 5 different animals and get your picture taken with the animals. You get 3 large photos... more »
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.
