ABOUT EVERGLADES AIRBOAT TOURS – A FAMILY FUN ADVENTURE: AIRBOAT RIDES AND LIVE GATOR SHOWS
Centrally located on Griffin Rd. in Fort Lauderdale, Everglades Holiday Park is a family-fun entertainment destination, offering everything from guided Everglades boat tours and live alligator presentations to food, souvenirs, and freshwater fishing. We cater to families, individuals, educators, corporations, and anyone looking to experience the magic and wonders of our state’s most exciting natural resource. We encourage visitors to enjoy the pristine Everglades ecosystem while learning about important preservation efforts during their Everglades excursion.
The Bridges family continues to own Everglades Holiday Park, which they do with pride. We’re proud to welcome you to our park, hosting airboat rides, the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, wildlife encounters, and so many fun memories for you and your family!
RENOVATIONS AND EXPANSION
In 2022, Everglades Holiday Park unveiled our major renovation project worth $16 million dollars. These expansions include a recreational park ground and picnic areas and more boat ramps so that a fisherman can bring his own airboat without causing congestion throughout the whole park. Public boat ramps are available off-site, but our own park was in need of a little update.
WILDLIFE IN THE EVERGLADES
We are all about excitement, adventure, education, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences—that’s why we offer the best Everglades airboat tours, LIVE gator shows, and up close and personal Animal Encounters with some of the most interesting creatures! We’re proud to serve families, individuals, groups, educators, corporations, and anyone looking to uncover the thrilling magic of South Florida’s most unique habitat, the Everglades!
LIVE ALLIGATOR SHOWS
We are partnered with the Gator Boys, a team you might have seen on their hit show on Animal Planet. Our alligator sanctuary is one of Florida’s top attractions!
These gators are taken from the residential areas surrounding the Everglades. If the Gator Boys didn’t rescue nuisance alligators for these shows, they would be euthanized and harvested for their meat and hides.
WORLD RENOWNED FRESHWATER FISHING
The Florida Everglades is revered for its fishing. At Everglades Holiday Park, experts and amateurs alike can enjoy fishing the ‘glades’ from a Jon boat, the dock or as part of a professionally guided Everglades airboat tour. We are equipped with boat and gear rentals, bait and fishing licenses, and everything else you need for catching largemouth bass, peacock bass, catfish, and more. With access to a boat ramp right at the park, locals and tourists can fish 24 hours a day.
