Tips for Families

This is a great ride to take on a warm day. The breeze blowing through your hair is very refreshing! Also, take the time when you're done to go inside and look around the little shop they have. Not only will you see some cute souvenirs (and find beverages and snacks reasonably priced), but you will also get the opportunity to hold a young gator!!

Everglades Alligator Farm

40351 SW 192 Ave, Homestead, Florida

i had a great time here. it's not huge, it's not "polished", and it's definitely not somewhere to take your little dog. (who takes their dog to a place full of gators??!?!?) for about the cost of an airboat ride out at the reservation you get the airboat ride, a few reptile shows, and you get to see more gators up close and personal than you would care to see. they even let you hold a baby gator! the airboat ride... it's loud, you might get wet, but it's fun. our "captain" was knowledgeable about the wildlife and knew how to handle that boat. we did a couple of 360's with about 15 people on board! good times! the shows.. we checked out the gator show and the gator feeding. the gator show consists of two guys...

Very bad experience! Although Yelp will not allow me to elaborate my full story, I believe I can say that we researched this place before coming, while on our visit to Florida. There was no policy indicated on the web site that pets of any sort are not allowed. I carry a 3 pound dog in a small carrier, completely enclosed. Our party of six arr...

Much like the continuum transfunctioner, the mystery of Coral Castle is exceeded only by its power. This is Florida kitsch at its finest. Hard to explain, even harder to understand, just take the family or friends out here and prepare t...

I was very excited to visit the alligator farm as it was the only touristy thing I'd be doing on my short work trip to Homestead, FL. It definitely did not disappoint! It surpassed all my expectations! The air boat ride was one of the most fun things I've done! I wanted to do it again! I didn't see any gators missing feet as the person below wrote. The little trail was really nice as well...I cant believe I almost missed it. The shows were very short but fun because they gave everyone a chance to hold baby alligators and snakes! I didn't think we'd spend all day there, but it ended up being so fun that we did! We also got to try alligator tail there, not sure how legit that was, but it's fun to say we've eat...

I dunno if the PETA folks accosted me last night but after promising our 3YO daughter that we'd take her to an Alligator farm, we called an audible and decided we'd try to seek them out in their natural habitat.   We arrived at the park late in the afternoon and after getting a quick run down from the very nice guide in the visitors center, we decided that we would make a 'B' line for Flamingo which is the opposite end of the park (on the Gulf side) which is about an hour drive.   The park offers boat rides from the Flamingo side of the park, they take you through the man made Buttonwood canal into Coot Bay pointing out the highlights along the way.  On our trip we saw Alligators, Crocs, Tri-Colored Herons a...

I was a bit nervous to take a first time Florida visitor here due to negative reviews on this and various other sites, but I knew he just had to see a gator before our vacation was over!  I'm so glad we went.  Cathy B has got it right-I don't think I have ever had that much fun in my natural life!   It is a fantastic way to spend 3-4 hours (you won't need more than that) for all ages.  They have a great schedule where you can see an alligator feeding, snake show, and an alligator show without feeling rushed or running around.  Oh and at the end of the alligator show you GET TO HOLD THE BABY GATORS!!! :)  I loved everything about this place!!  I'm smiling just writing this review.  I suggest that you bring lo...

This place is amazing! So filled with mystery and mystique. My family and I had a great time and were so glad we made the time to check it out. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. They seemed to enjoy answering our questions (as best they could) just as much as we enjoyed asking! The man w...

There are a few times in your life when you can revisit things as an adult you thought you loved when you were a kid and realize they are so much more than you remembered, visiting the Everglades is one of those times. Right in our backyard is this lush, fascinating and thriving ecosystem and yet when you're there it is very easy to forget the hustle and bustle of Miami is just around the way. If you think the Everglades is all about airboat rides you are seriously mistaken. Guided tours, picnics, canoeing, bike riding, hiking, camping, the Everglades has got it all! Whether you're a native Miamian or you've just been in town for a bit, you have to come to Everglades National Park and see the majesty that is...
