With 1.5 million acres spanning from Lake Kissimmee down to Florida Bay, the Everglades is comprised of thousands of lakes, marshes, aquifers, flowing bodies of water, and home to hundreds of thousands of animals. Among other things, the Florida Everglades is famous for its world-class fishing opportunities. When you spend a day at Everglades Holiday Park, you’re never far from fish like Largemouth Bass, Peacock Bass, Gar, Snakeheads, and Catfish.
While the Everglades does offer endless opportunities for fishing, both Florida residents and visitors need a Florida fishing license if they plan to cast a line, catch and release, or catch and keep their fish. For those who don’t have a fishing license, but are eager to spend a day fishing in the Everglades, not to worry! Everglades Holiday Park offers same-day Florida fishing licenses on our grounds! That’s right, when you arrive at our park, you can apply for your Florida fishing license and receive it in no time.
While you work with one of our team members to receive your same-day Florida fishing license, you can rent one of our 14-foot Jon boats, and check out our wide selection of rods, bait, and tackle available in our general store. Our team members will walk you through every step of the process, so you’re prepared for your day on the water. Everglades Holiday Park has everything you need for a day of fishing. Our park is open 7 days a week starting at 9 AM. Call us today for more information!This entry was posted in Everglades Holiday Park Blog on .
Spending a day at Everglades Holiday Park means adventure at every turn. From zipping across the winding waterways, to coming up close to American Alligators, and even petting and holding our exotic wildlife - there’s no shortage of excitement on our grounds.
Although our visitors get the chance to see American Alligators in their natural habitat on our airboat tours, they can also watch our live gator shows for an even closer look at these giant aquatic reptiles. With a gator pit that holds up to 20 giant gators at once, many people are left wondering how exactly we obtained so many alligators at our park.
Almost all alligators at our South Florida alligator park have been donated or rescued. On our 29-acre wildlife preserve, we take protecting our environment very seriously. Since alligators are native to Florida, they can sometimes be found in roadside canals or even residential neighborhoods. This can be a danger to both the alligators themselves, and to the people in the surrounding area. Our team rescues these gators to ensure they are swiftly brought back to a safer environment where they can grow and live in peace with other alligators.
Since Everglades Holiday Park has a well-known reputation of caring for the environment and wildlife, some of our alligators have been donated to us from other organizations. Our animal experts have years of training and experience in handling all sorts of wildlife, which is why Everglades Holiday Park is the perfect spot for “nuisance” or lost alligators to take shelter. A few of our animals have been raised in captivity, such as our baby albino alligator, because of its rarity.
