Know More about this tour

You'll be picked up from select Orlando locations before departing on a 1-hour bus ride to the Florida Everglades. Once you arrive at the 13-acre (5-hectare) park, board the airboat for an airboat eco-tour, during which you'll travel deep into the 4,200 acres (1,699 hectares) of protected swamps, marshes and rivers that make up the Central Florida Everglades.

Get an in-depth look at the gators, birds, eagles, trees and plants that make up these beautiful wetlands from your certified US Coast Guard-approved captain. Explore a quiet, unspoiled part of Florida, where you wont see any urban development.

After your exciting airboat ride, watch a live alligator demonstration! During this 20-minute experience, learn all about the American alligator, including its habits as well as the types of dangers associated with gators.

Then, take some time to explore the amazing wildlife park on your own and visit the wildlife exhibits. Spot a zebra, a white-tailed deer, Watusi cattle, gators, tortoises and more before visiting the tropical bird aviary. Discover the Hawk Swamp boardwalk, which takes you through a pristine Florida cypress swamp ecosystem, and make sure to take a stroll along the 500-foot (124-meter) sightseeing dock for amazing views of the park.

  • Somewhat of a long drive, half a day, interesting day at the zoo, but somehow lacking, fun airboat ride though

  • So much fun!

  • Loved gliding over the Everglades in an air-boat. The scenery was spectacular and we were able to get up close and personal with a nest gator and her eggs! Loved the aligator feeding and the albino gaters!

  • Would recommend this tour. Sadly hurricane Irma had left her mark and some of the animals in the enclosures hadnt been returned from their safe place. The airboat itself was amazing but we only managed to see one alligator in the wild. We did get to feed some of the alligators in their attraction side though which was something to see.

  • Decided to spring for the hour-long airboat tour and it was worth every penny! Such a beautiful landscape! What Disney tries to recreate in The Animal Kingdom is here in all its natural beauty!

  • When we booked the tour, we knew this was a hokey, touristy thing to do but we like airboats and the thought of seeing 'gators in a natural habitat would be great. Anyway, this tour was probably cheaper than another day at the dog track.

  • This is the second time we have done this tour. Absolutely brilliant day out!

  • The alligators decided not to show themselves during our airboat tour, but we enjoyed the boat ride with Captain Wayde.

  • The Alligator Encounter is quite a small park and didn't take long to go round. The Airboat tour was good - we did an hour BUT there was a lot of hanging around and waiting.

  • July 13 2017 tour: The airboat ride, which is the reason that we booked this trip, was terrific! The animal park associated with the airboat ride was also good. So the low rating was due to the Greyline portion of the booking. Greyline was the responsible transportation company. We were picked up at the designated hotel on time - a good thing. We had to transfer to another bus, which in itself, is OK. However, the other bus was late and we were standing in a parking lot for 30 minutes waiting we were asked to leave the original bus. The tour guide on this second and final bus was worthless - no information about the area - no history - no pointing out where we were or things that we passed during our 45 minute ride. The bus itself had almost non-operational a/c - blowers almost NOT working on one side of the bus and NOT working on the other side. It was Florida in July - so this was not good. In fact, this was very bad and extremely uncomfortable. The bus driver was good and responsible. So, to recap, the airboat ride was great - the Greyline transportation and guide was NOT good.
