Explore the ❝Wild❞ Side of South Florida On an Hour Long Airboat Tour
An airboat ride is a highlight of any shore excursion to see the Florida Everglades. For a full hour, you'll explore the deepest parts of the Everglades, led by an experienced boat captain and ❝gladesman❞ who navigates the wetlands with ease. Your boat captain knows exactly where to go to see the sights you're looking for like alligators, iconic wading birds and more. Sit back and relax as you glide across the River of Grass stopping only to meet and greet with the wildlife. All of the airboats at Everglades Holiday Park are covered and that means you can enjoy your ride without worrying about getting too much sun on your shore excursion.
Shore Excursions - Meet Everglades Wildlife Up Close and Personal
The beauty of the Everglades is discovered in mere minutes as you come face to face with all kinds of unique and exotic wildlife in their natural habitat. Unlike a zoo where animals are caged and spend their days staring at people through a glass partition, the Everglades features animals as they are in nature. It's an incredible opportunity to see firsthand how they live and coexist in this amazing tropical environment.
Live Gator Presentation
Each airboat ride comes with a complimentary live alligator presentation performed by the Gator Boys from the Animal Planet hit series. The presentation is a great way to witness firsthand the incredible strength and grace of the American alligator as well as learn about important conservation and preservation efforts within the Everglades.
South Florida is filled with amazing scenery and it's not hard to find something enjoyable to look at, but there's another side to the state that few people beyond locals get the pleasure to experience. For a once in a lifetime adventure, an exhilarating airboat ride and up close interaction with wildlife, shore excursions at Everglades Holiday Park are a must do.
