What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel in Fort Lauderdale, and set out to a site at the edge of the Everglades to start the airboat tour. Speed across the water in a fan-propelled airboat, and see the wetlands where alligators thrive along with fish, turtles, and wading birds. The captain pauses the tour at strategic spots, so you can watch the alligators as they swim, feed, or sunbathe in a pristine setting and then steer you back to the airboat base camp for the alligator show. Alligator handlers introduce the alligators, share facts and information about the ancient creatures, and demonstrate alligator wrestling, a longtime tradition in Florida swamps and the Everglades. Following the alligator show, this adventure concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

Host Al was great and airboat ride was good for the first time (doubt I would return). Alligator show was a bit cheesy, but good natured, funny, and informative. I'd recommend for any first time visit.
