    Stop At: Everglades Holiday Park, 21940 Griffin Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33332-2099

    Climb aboard an airboat for an invigorating tour through the Everglades, encounter wildlife and take in a live gator show featuring the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team from Animal Planet’s hit TV series. Here's your chance to meet and greet with some of South Florida's most amazing animals from the comfort and convenience of an exciting airboat ride. With an exclusive VIP tour from Everglades Holiday Park, you'll be picked up in the morning from your named location and taken to the park. Once you arrive, you'll be escorted to our docks where you'll climb aboard a state-of-the-art vessel for an hour-long, fully narrated journey through the Everglades.

    Glide across the "River of Grass" at top speeds and let the sights and sounds of alligators, snakes, wading birds, and unique vegetation steal the show as you venture deep into the ecosystem. Captains at Everglades Holiday Park are experts who know exactly where to take the boat and cut the engines for you to experience the magic of this pristine environment.

    Return to the docks after an invigorating tour and get ready for an entertaining gator show featuring the Gator Boys Alligator Rescue team in our world-famous pit. With daring tricks, stunts, and a few laughs, you'll leave with a renewed perspective and some fantastic pictures to share with family and friends. After the show, pose for a free baby gator group photo and browse our souvenir and gift shop for a few keepsakes before we bring your group back to your hotel or named destination. The ultimate once-in-a-lifetime Everglades experience, VIP tours at Everglades Holiday Park make it easier than ever to experience the Everglades in style.
