Safety is a popular FAQs for our Everglades National Park airboat tours, but one thing we pride ourselves on at Everglades Holiday Park is providing a safe, family-fun day of excitement for people of all ages.

Quite the opposite actually. The Gator Boys Alligator Rescue actually helps nuisance alligators by giving them a place to live and eat in a natural setting. All of our shows are animal friendly. In fact, some of the gators we feature enjoy the attention and are little ❝hams❞ for the crowd!
