Step into the Show at the 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.
