Comments about Smart Destinations :

Captain Sean was awesome, very funny! They even had beers in their store that you could take on the boat! Also, they had a mini wildlife zoo where they have a few presentations with the animals. We are graduated spring breakers who wanted to get out and do a few things, this is a good choice!!

Great stop
By Florida Vacationer Verified Reviewer from Miami and Fort Lauderdale, FL on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

The boat ride was great. We got to see several aligators while on the tour and the guide was great at entertaining all on board. The ride is only 1/2 hour long and it seems to go by quickly. If you are wanting a more in depth tour book somewhere else. The time length was perfect for our vacation. We would deffinately return and take the tour again.

great tour
By caroline Verified Reviewer from St. Louis, Missouri on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This was great because you could come and go at your own schedule, since the boat left every 1/2 hour. After our driver located an alligator, he pulled him out of the water to show us how docile he is. We saw the alligator's teeth and everything!

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

My husband had just died in 2006 with a heart attack while we lived in Japan. Our son, at the time, 14 was still heartbroken after moving back to the States. My sister and I took him to Florida and there we found Sawgrass Everglades Park. Wow...we were in for such a surprise! It was slow at lunchtime and it was just the 3 of us so Captain Charlie took us out on his small airboat and showed us the time of our lives. There's a photo of my son and I on their website laughing hard. You can see in my son's face the wonderful expression of complete enjoyment by being there. Then as we rode, he saw the eyes of alligators peering through the water. Having my always faithful camera and zoom lens, I proceeded to photograph some wonderful photos which still reside on their website. Thank you Captain Charlie for that awesome boat ride and educational tour! After the boat ride, we proceeded to see the baby alligators and learned how these little creatures could bite off your finger. The owner's son so gracefully wrapped the baby alligator's mouth with tape before handing him over to my son to hold. James, my son, loved experiencing this firsthand. We then went to their wildlife park which are animals rescued in the wild. James got to feed a tiger cub with a bottle and then was escorted to sit by and pet a tiger that was a few months old. We had the wonderful opportunity to meet the owner before leaving thanking him for such a wonderful time! This is not only a park but a family owned park that makes the atmosphere one of warmth and just plain fun! You have to go if you ever have the chance or if you're ever in that area...just take the time and go. You WON'T regret it!!

By Tom from Illinois from Edwardsville, IL on
Pros:
Got us a Gator, Short wait for boat ride, Friendly
Cons:
Animal exhibits,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

Great experience. "Captain Tim" did a great job finding us a gator and showing us the everglades. Only a half hour ride, but since we had kids with us it was long enough. Some of the animal exhibits were small and unimpressive, but the animals looked healthy and well taken care of.
