Everglades Holiday Park, located in Fort Lauderdale Florida, is South Florida’s most popular alligator attraction, with 29-acres of wetlands bursting with exotic plants and wildlife. Visitors from all over the world visit Everglades Holiday Park each year for a chance to embark on a guided airboat tour, explore the grounds, check out endangered species, and watch as a professional wrestles a large alligator, one-on-one.
Visitors to the park can enjoy a 60-minute, narrated airboat tour led by a professional airboat captain who doubles as an Everglades expert. Once visitors get the chance to glide through the waterways of the Everglades and pull right up to American alligators, fish, birds, turtles, and more, they’ll get the chance to watch a live alligator show right on our grounds.
Our show is always exciting, as a member of the Alligator Boys rescue team stands amongst a pool of giant alligators, performs stunts, tricks, and even shares some interesting information on the reptiles. Recently, we renovated our alligator pit with a new look, allowing for perfect views no matter where you’re seated. And now, we’ve got more great news! Everglades Holiday Park is excited to announce that our gator shows just got even BETTER! We’re now offering covered seating so those viewing our thrilling show can watch a member of our team wrestle an American alligator with their bare hands, all from the comfort of our shaded stands.
Seating at our Alligator show is wheelchair accessible, and only seats a limited number of guests at once, which means every seat offers only the best view of the show. You’ll be just on the other side of the glass from our Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team, and with our new covered seating, you can enjoy the show with a little shade and a cool breeze.
Tickets for Everglades Holiday Park’s live alligator show can be bought with an airboat ride ticket, or sold separately. Call today to learn about our new, comfortable seating options for our live gator show.This entry was posted in Everglades Holiday Park Blog on .

As Everglades experts, our team at Everglades Holiday Park is frequently asked, “when is the best time of year to take an airboat ride in Florida?”. With a tropical climate and seemingly endless sunshine, there’s really no bad time to hop on one of our state-of-the-art airboats and fly across the waters of the Everglades. Rather than noticeable changes in the air and color of the leaves, the seasonal changes in the Everglades mean variation in animal activity and water levels. There are, however, some perks of taking an airboat ride in the fall months, and here’s why:
1. The Weather
With a nickname like “the Sunshine State”, it’s no surprise that South Florida temperatures can get pretty hot most of the year. However, fall in South Florida means temperatures drop a few degrees, making conditions out on the water a little more comfortable – especially for those who aren’t used to the heat like South Florida natives. The drop-in temperature is usually accompanied by an enjoyable breeze that helps keep you cool and away from any pests while you’re out exploring the thriving waters of the Everglades.
2. The Animals
Seasonal variations can affect the frequency in which certain animals are spotted. With cooler temperatures and lower water levels during the fall and winter months, visitors might have a better chance at spotting some of the Everglades most famous animals. The American alligator, for example, regularly sunbathes on the shores during these months to regulate its body temperature.
3. Less Crowds
As one of the most popular summertime attractions, South Florida experiences a major influx of visitors during the summer months. In fall, however, when kids are back in school and families are traveling less, you may enjoy fewer crowds at our South Florida alligator park.
South Florida with it’s ideal climate creates a perfect atmosphere for visitors year-round, however visitors might enjoy an airboat ride in the fall a little more! Learn more about airboat tours on our website, and book your tour today! This entry was posted in Everglades Holiday Park Blog on .
