Three Prime Locations You'll Want to See on Your Airboat Ride  - Everglades Holiday Park

If you've been researching a vacation to the Everglades, you know by now that there's a ton to offer visitors of all kinds at the third largest National Park in the lower 48 states. The Everglades consists of wetlands, swamps, and vast wooded areas that houses hundreds of different animals and species. Rivers, lakes, and streams intertwine within the Southernmost part of Florida to entice both amateur and professional fishermen, and the vastly gorgeous coastline itself begs to be explored. Many Everglades frequenters make a habit of repeating their favorite activities over and over again – hiking, fishing, sight seeing, camping and exploring are all favorites! One of the most beloved activities, however, and one that the Everglades has become quite famous for, is airboat rides.

What better way to cruise and sightsee the wetlands than by zipping around at top speeds? The Everglades has become widely known as the “River of Grass”, so air boating is a way to ensure that you can get to even the most difficult to reach places by boat without any trouble at all. Our airboats have passenger compartments that will protect you from any weather – sunshine or rain – and will leave you safe and simply exhilarated when you take the ride of your life through the Everglades. You'll come face to face with unique and exciting animals, and an expert tour guide will ensure your safety the entire time. So – if you find yourself in the Everglades and wanting to have a little fun, sign up for an airboat tour and head to one of these three fantastic locations.

Alligator Alley Airboat Tours

Wondering what you might experience in Alligator Alley? It's all in the name. When you take an airboat tour with Everglades Holiday Park, you'll get an hour to venture into some of the deepest mangroves and ecosystems in South Florida, where wildlife is most abundant. The expert tour guides will know beyond the shadow of a doubt where to go, and will be helpful in educating you on the wildlife you come across. When you venture into Alligator Alley on an airboat tour, you'll come close to a number of alligators, learn more about the magnificent species, and maintain your safety at all times.

Explore the Mangroves

The Everglades is known for it's gorgeous mangroves that twist into tunnels over nearly every swamp and stream around. You'll feel the wind in your face as you take in the beautiful sights, and 60 miles per hour will feel amazing on your covered airboat in the heat of a South Florida Day. When you tour the Mangroves, your tour guide will point out wildlife, share stories and fun facts that you'd never know otherwise.

Traverse the Grasslands and the Swamps

Exploring the Mangrove and Alligator Alley will provide a unique experience, but adding a tour through the grasslands and forest surrounding will add significantly to the excitement. The lush landscape and the wildlife you'll take in will differ from that in the Alley, and then when you venture through the swamps you'll see even more. Wildlife varies across every Everglades ecosystem, so why not explore them all?

Everglades Holiday Park airboat rides are truly fun for the whole family. At an hour long and at speeds of up to 60 miles per hour, you can be sure that you'll have the experience of a lifetime. Whether you explore Alligator Alley, zip through the Mangrove tunnels, or traverse the grasslands and swamps (or do all three!), you won't regret any amount of time spent with your family on an airboat, where you'll learn a ton and live life (safely) on the edge.

Looking to Entertain the Kids? Explore the Everglades!

Looking to Entertain the Kids? Explore the Everglades   - Everglades Holiday Park

Keeping the kids entertained is rarely an easy task. While there are amusement parks, 3-D movies and day trips to the beach, if they’ve “been there, done that”, they’re not likely to stay entertained for long. This weekend, when the kids are looking around for something to do, why not let them explore one of South Florida’s most exciting natural attractions – the Everglades.

What is there to do and see in America’s wetland? How about getting up close and personal with exciting wildlife, taking a fast boat ride and witnessing an awe-inspiring live alligator show? Everglades Holiday Park in Fort Lauderdale has all this and more – in one convenient location! Take the family on an adventure they’ll treasure forever with a few hours of good old-fashioned fun hanging with the crew from the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue at Everglades Holiday Park.

Meet and Greet With Everglades Wildlife

How often do you get the chance to lock eyes with a ten-foot alligator? How about witnessing a brightly colored Roseate Spoonbill snatch a fish from the shallow water? Wildlife viewing in the Everglades is spectacular, and exactly why the area is such a popular sightseeing locale. With over 360 different species of birds, 50 plus reptiles, and over 40 different mammals, the Everglades are brimming with exciting sights and sounds.

Weather conditions are typically pleasant during the dry season – December through April, making it a great time to spot wildlife. Because water levels are lower during this time, many animals can be seen easily, making a trip through the Everglades extra fun. Alligators, wading birds and other freshwater animals congregate in groups, giving spectators the opportunity to snap pictures. The perfect habitat for amphibians, reptiles and more, the River of Grass is a fantastic place to stop and listen to the sounds of nature.

Everglades birds are iconic, having become the subject of much creative art over the years. Whether you’re an artist in search of inspiration or just a casual observer, you’ll delight in watching scores of birds dot the landscape. In the ‘glades alone, 360 different species of birds have been identified, falling into three distinct categories: birds of prey, wading birds and land birds. Wading birds are fun to watch in person – the white ibis, woodstork and great egret are often seen on Everglades tours. Bird enthusiasts, nature explorers and folks just out for an exciting adventure delight in watching the antics of these amazing creatures.

Believe it or not, the American alligator is one of over 50 different reptiles living in the Everglades! Snakes, including the Eastern Diamondback and Florida Cottonmouth live among iguanas, geckos, snapping turtles, box turtles and more. Over 40 mammals can be found wandering the area, including the bobcat, white tailed deer, raccoons, fox, river otters and the elusive Florida panther.

Airboating Anyone?

The easiest way to tour the amazing Everglades is by airboat – flat bottomed vessels propelled by giant aircraft engines. Airboats glide easily through the shallow water of the ‘glades, never disturbing the animals. But with up close and personal access to wildlife, an airboat tour through the Everglades is one of the most exciting ways to explore the wetlands. Most tours in the area are relatively short, but Everglades Holiday Park offers 60 minutes – a full hour of exploration and adventure. Plus, with experienced captains to navigate, you’re sure to see all kinds of amazing flora and fauna. Kids of all ages love the excitement of zipping through the water at speeds close to 60 miles per hour, and with frequent stops to meet and greet the wildlife, it’s the best of both worlds.

Airboating anyone? - Everglades Holiday Park
Worried about the hot Florida sun? Don’t be. Vessels at the park are offered in one of two ways – completely open or partially covered for guests who want to have a little shade to shelter from the heat or sun. Whichever airboat you choose, it’s nearly impossible not to see everything as the ecosystem surrounds you from every angle. But be prepared, because alligators often come very close to the edge of the boat, giving guests the opportunity to snap one-of-a-kind pictures. And it’s a common sight to see a Purple Gallinule fly over and land on your captain’s shoulder in anticipation of a stray piece of popcorn or two.

Live Alligator Shows Featuring the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue

A trip to the Everglades wouldn’t be complete without a live gator show! With the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team on site, Everglades Holiday Park is the best place to experience an alligator show in South Florida! The crew is best known for their appearance on Animal Planet’s hit reality show, The Gator Boys, and many of the rescued gators from the show live in the world famous “Gator Pit” at the park. Guests who purchase airboat tickets are invited to watch a complementary show featuring someone from the team each day.

Don’t try this at home!

Step into the Show at the Everglades Gator Park

Everglades Gator Park

South Florida is famous for its national park that attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. The Everglades is the third largest national park in the lower 48 states, and boasts many different types of ecosystems, mangroves, wetlands and coastlines – each that offer activities and wildlife unique to the specific area. Everglades Holiday Park is a hub for Everglades activities, and offers top notch entertainment for the entire family.

Perhaps the most famous creature in the Everglades is the alligator, the ancient beast that continues to reign supreme today in South Florida. Everglades Holiday Park recognizes that alligators are a sight to behold, and here, we strive to give you a complete Everglades experience that leaves you feeling like you've seen all there is to see, gators included. For that reason, we've created numerous opportunities for you to come into close contact with these gators – all safely, of course.

See Them in their Natural Habitat

The Everglades is dotted with creeks, streams, rivers and swamps that sit amongst mangroves and grasslands – perfect territory for the admired alligator. There are so many ways you can tour the wetlands in order to see these beings in their habitat... take a guided boat tour through a swamp, hike the lands with a guide, or – best of all – opt for an airboat tour. Simply stated, no trip to the Everglades is complete without an airboat tour, and you won't regret taking one when you realize just how up close and personal you'll get with the alligators in their natural habitat. Expert tour guides will lead you through Alligator Alley, where you'll likely see hundreds of gators sunbathing and resting on logs and rocks surrounding. Everglades Holiday Park believes firmly in conserving natural wetlands and preserving them without disturbing the inhabitants, so we're thrilled to give you a glimpse of what wild life is really like in the Everglades without any sort of manmade alteration.

See Them Up Close

The airboat tour will give you a taste of gator life, though you won't have an opportunity to get too up close and personal (after all – these are alligators in the wild!) But, we know that sometimes you just want to be as close as possible in a more controlled environment, which is why we also pride ourselves on our gator shows, which take place after every air boat ride. At our famous gator shows, you'll witness an educational and exciting show that features the power and intelligence that these reptiles possess. Get excited – you'll be a witness for some exciting stunts, hear some spectacular stories, and walk away with a greater knowledge of the primitive species having heard some mind blowing facts about why they are the way they are, and what they can do.

They're Family Friendly

Are you worried that big brother will be bored? Worried that little sister will be scared? We can assure you, mom and dad, that the Gator shows at Everglades Holiday Park are fun for the whole family. There will be fun and unusual facts for people of all ages, tricks and silly jokes for the young visitors, and at the end – every visitor will have an opportunity to hold a baby alligator in this experience of a lifetime. It simply doesn't matter how old you are, you'll be up close and personal with the gators in a safe, comfortable and natural way, and there's simply no replacing that kind of family fun.

Gator Show Schedule

If you're in Everglades Holiday Park, catch a gator show anytime! We put them on 7 days a week, from 9 in the morning until 5 in the evening. Buy tickets in advance to receive a discount on the airboat tour and educational gator show!

There's no doubt about it, you cannot visit the Everglades without spending some time with the gators – to do that would be to miss out on a classic Everglades experience! Go with Everglades Holiday Park for your airboat gator tour and a gator show that will get you so close to the species and having so much fun, that you simply won't want to leave!

See It All When You Rent an Everglades Boat

Rent and Everglades Boat - Everglades Holiday Park

South Florida is comprised predominantly of wetlands – swamps, marshes, lakes, rivers and streams leading to the coast, surrounded by wet grasslands and mangroves that house some of the most unique wildlife on the planet. To consider going to the Everglades without renting a boat is to consider missing out on nearly everything that the park has to offer. Would you venture deep into the wilderness without a four wheel drive vehicle to get you where you need to go? Likely not, so why would you approach the wet lands on a sight seeing journey without a boat? Curious as to what your options are, and what you can do with them? Allow us to lay it all out for you!

Rent a Boat on the Coast

South Florida is famous for its pristine beaches and beautiful coast lines, so don't miss out on an experience to explore that side of the Everglades as well! The coast of Florida is a fisherman's dream with fish that are a thrill to catch and tasty to devour. The sightseer will be happy with the landscape – to take in the sights, smells, and wind on the water. Birds, unique species of fish and other animals abound on the coast. If you're interested in fishing only, consider renting a boat and hiring a guide to go with you. Locals will help instruct you on where to go to make the most of your experience!

Rent a Boat on Freshwater

The freshwater areas are vast and plentiful, also great for fishing and sightseeing. A different kind of wildlife can be found here – birds, reptiles, gators and other animals are unique and a thrill to come across! Gators can be spotted sunbathing on logs and on the shores of rivers and some lakes, and snakes can be found swimming along the streams and in and out of creek beds. Fish the lakes, rivers, creeks and swamps for bass and brim, catfish and other indigenous species. Spots on Lake Okeechobee are swimming with massive fish that are great for pulling in for sport or for dinner. Similar to saltwater fishing, always keep in mind that renting a boat and hiring a guide is a legitimate proposition for freshwater fishing as well. A guide who's lived in and around the Everglades most of his life will take you to the fishing holes that nobody else knows about, as long as you have a boat to get there.

Rent an Airboat in the Everglades

Perhaps the best way to see the Everglades is from an airboat. These flat bottomed boats skid across flat waters, and may be propelled by air up to 60 miles per hour! Though licenses and certifications are required to drive them, boats are rentable with a driver, and are certainly no waste of money. On an airboat, you can traverse the wet lands – zipping down streams, through swamps and creeks and up rivers, winding in and out of the eco-systems and mangroves that surround the waters. You'll see more wildlife this way, as the airboat permits greater access to the heart of the Everglades, access that isn't possible by regular boat, by car, by foot or by quad. Air boats are rentable through Everglades Holiday Park; you can reserve an entire boat for your group, opt for one of the park's airboat tours that ends with a gator show, or rent a smaller, private air boat for you and your family.

The Airboat Tour

If you opt for the airboat tour through Everglades Holiday Park, you'll have access to the heart of the Everglades, as we take you down Alligator Alley, where you'll see gators and other unique wildlife in plenty. Each tour is one hour long, and after you dock we'll take you to our gator show, where your gator tour will launch to the next level as you're allowed to get really up close and personal. Our gator shows are educational, fun, funny, interesting, and great for the whole family. Not only will you hear from passionate professionals on the primitive species, but you'll have an opportunity to see stunts and tricks, and even hold a baby alligator yourself. All of this comes included when you rent an airboat for your Everglades Holiday Park airboat tour!

So, it really is a no brainer – if you venture down to South Florida to visit the Everglades, you're doing yourself a major disservice to forgo a boat rental. Explore the coastal waters with a salt water boat, skim the waters of the rivers and lakes with a fresh water skiff, and zip across the wetlands and swamps with an airboat... you won't regret it when you walk away having had the experience of a lifetime!
