I had never been to the everglades before. Our air boat trip was good. However, our guide told us it was the wrong time of year to see very many gators. We learned a lot from the wildlife animal show about gators, however.

The airboat tour was a bit disappointing. The ranger told us it was too hot for alligators so they stayed under water. Besides some insects we haven't seen a single animal. After the airboat you may visit an alligator show which I don't understand when...More

Air boat ride was short. Driver was full of information and very professional. Not many visible gators on the tour. Florida hot. Snake at the gator cage area was alright. One time deal.

Thank you for your feedback . 1. We cannot guarantee seeing wildlife, this is the real Everglades where wildlife comes and goes on it own. Most the time we see alligators on our tour but sometimes they do hide. We do not control that. 2....More

In the boat we used there was not access for wheelchair bound individuals. There are private and individual tours as an option. It is worth a call to inquire if they can accommodate your needs.
