Deep in Everglades National Park, take one of Gator Park Airboat Tour's famous rides down the River of Grass! Pass by a replica of a common fishing camp used by Indians, a palm and cypress wood structure called a chickee. Then pick up speed and head for where the sawgrass grows tall, giving the appearance of an open prairie stretching for miles on end.
Gator Park is the premier Airboat tour in the Florida Everglades. Experienced and professional guides help you spot alligators, soft-shelled turtles, and exotic wading birds.
Out here there is no dry land, except for the tree covered islands called hammocks where mammals such as raccoons, whitetail deer, and wild boar live.
At the Wildlife Show at Gator Park, learn how the Indians wrestled alligators–you might even be asked to lend a hand. There is no better way to experience the Everglades!
The Everglades National Park is known for its vast wildlife. There are hundreds of bird species, many of which are on the endangered or threatened list. On your Gator Park tour, you'll see lots of large wading birds, such as the roseate spoonbill, great blue heron, white ibis and a variety of egrets, as well as the osprey.
The Everglades' marine life includes more than 200,000 alligators as well as American crocodiles. In abundance are fish such as large mouth bass, redfish, snapper, blue gill and catfish.
Other wildlife in the Everglades includes the white-tailed deer, more than 28 different snakes - a few which are venomous - and let us not forget, the endangered Florida panther. To learn more or see some of these Everglades wildlife firsthand, make sure you visit our wildlife show immediately after your Gator Park airboat tour.
Comments about Smart Destinations Gator Park Airboat Tours:
Can't tell you much about the place except that it really feels like the Everglades with all the vegetation. We didn't have time to watch the shows, we just did the airboat tour. It was thrilling and we even got to see a few wild alligators! The guide was really good.
