What Is There to Learn From an Alligator Show In the Everglades?
One of the more exciting things to do in the Sunshine State is to take in a live alligator show in the Everglades. Alligators are plentiful in Florida – there are over 200,000 in the ‘glades alone! Families, nature enthusiasts, even seniors enjoy meeting and greeting with alligators up close – as long as they’re restrained or it’s from the safety of an airboat. If you haven’t explored the Florida Everglades and you’re wondering what you could be missing, you’re not alone.
Folks ask us all the time what they’ll learn from watching an alligator show and we thought it was time to share a few bits of knowledge on what makes a gator show at Everglades Holiday Park so special. Here are just a few of the reasons why guests can’t get enough of Paul and the Gator Boys team in the world famous “Gator Pit” at Everglades Holiday Park.
Factual Tidbits About the American Alligator
Did you know that an American alligator generates as much as 3,700 pounds per square inch just by snapping its jaws? That’s a powerful bite, and more force than a lion or a tiger! How about the fact that alligators grow new teeth as they need them or that the temperature of a gator nest determines the sex of the babies? Experience a live alligator show at Everglades Holiday Park and you’re sure to hear some of the most interesting alligator facts around. Paul and the gang are serious about gators, and they love sharing stories with the crowd about life with one of the most amazing reptiles on Earth. Gator shows at the park are complementary with the price of an airboat tour – twenty to thirty minutes of exciting tricks, daring stunts and interesting facts.
Family Friendly Entertainment
Sometimes people wonder if a live alligator show in the Everglades is an appropriate activity for the kids. Is it family friendly? Of course! At Everglades Holiday Park, we take pride in delivering the most entertaining and educational experience for all ages. Little ones in particular delight in seeing reptiles up close and parents can relax knowing that each and every Gator Boy and team member at the park are highly trained professionals. We love what we do and it shows! Families come back again and again to share the experience with eager, enthusiastic children. Plus, moms and dads appreciate knowing that the kids are learning something meaningful about not only the alligator, but also, the Everglades ecosystem and the efforts to protect this incredible natural resource.
Meet the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue Team
One of the most talked about parts of a gator show at Everglades Holiday Park has to do with who is performing. Everglades Holiday Park is the only place in South Florida where you can see the Gator Boys in person and meet the team after the show. As the home to the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue, the park is proud to provide a safe haven for the hundreds of well deserving alligators the crew rescued on the show. The “Gator Pit” is where the action happens – the only place fans want to be when Paul or Chris perform the infamous “face-off” trick for an excited crowd of onlookers.
The show is exciting, but it has something that no other live alligator presentation has been able to replicate – pure fun with the one and only Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team. While the reality show is no longer airing on Animal Planet, fans are always welcome to visit the park for the chance to pose for a picture with the team, hold a few live animals with Ashley and of course, snap pictures during the most exciting live gator show in the Everglades.
The Opportunity to Explore the Pristine Florida Everglades By Airboat
Gator shows at Everglades Holiday Park are included with the price of a boat tour through the wetlands. How do visitors to the Everglades enjoy the wetlands? By airboat of course! Airboat tours and rides are a crowd pleaser for sure, and one of the best ways to navigate the shallow waters that make up this unique ecosystem. Airboats are unlike traditional boats in many ways, and an exhilarating ride across the “River of Grass” is a must do for adventurous families and outdoor types. At Everglades Holiday Park, airboats are state-of-the-art vessels designed to zip across the water with ease. It’s an experience you’ll never forget, and one the whole family will want to do again and again.
Airboat tours at Everglades Holiday Park are the longest in the area – a full 60 minutes of fun! And with covered and uncovered vessels, it’s never been easier to see the sights and protect yourself from the hot Florida sun. Skilled captains navigate each boat, ensuring every tour is jam packed with the most descriptive details on the animals and their surroundings. Sit back and relax as your captain points out amazing wading birds like the Blue Heron or Great Egret. Watch in awe as brightly colored birds dart across the landscape and swoop down to capture a fish next to the boat. It’s impressive in person, and exactly why an airboat tour through the Everglades is a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience the magic of the Everglades up close and personal.
