This was an impulse visit. We arrived at Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port in the morning and as our plane for London didn't leave Miami until the evening we hired a car and just drove into the Everglades. We saw this attraction and thought it would give us a taste of the Everglades which it certainly did. We had an half hour air boat ride, a short talk about the habitat showing us some animals and I held a young alligator. The staff were very welcoming and the guides very knowledgeable. We left feeling we had a worthwhile visit.
