We stopped at Billies after going to the Museum nearby. I'm glad we checked out the Critter Show. The guide was fun and friendly and we got to pet a skunk and hold a baby alligator. I was a little disappointed there were only 4 animals in total in the Critter Show but it was fun. We also explored the... More

Me and my friends from Canada came here as a group, some of us to see the sights of the everglades in a traditional vibe such as offered by the park, and for me who loves birding and wildlife photography. There was no lack of substance as there were many animals of all kinds during the air boat ride and... More

Hello, that is fantastic news to hear a photography buff was able to see our canvas of natures beauty found here inside the park. The amount of migratory and native birds here is astounding. Next time try the swamp buggy ride, it goes through four different eco-systems, there are a lot of wading birds and wildlife seen from this high... More

Our family of 6 and another family of 5 spent New Years Eve at Billie Swamp Safari and we did the combination ticket. This place was immaculately clean and well built. I was not expecting the quality to be that high. Our whole group loved the airboat ride-we wish it was a little longer! We saw plenty of alligators and... More

After a bad experience at Airboats & Alligators, my family visited Billie Swamp Safari on Christmas Eve. The staff were incredibly nice and accommodating. They had so much more than I thought, we did the swamp buggy and airboat ride. Afterwards they let us take our time taking pictures and said to "make it our backyard". It was a blast!... More

We stopped here for a few hours when driving between Miami and Naples and really enjoyed it. There are some animal enclosures you can walk around on your own (turtles, alligators, crocodiles, wolves, macaws, a bear, various birds of prey) but the real highlights are the airboat rides and the swamp buggy tours. We benefitted from visiting on a quiet... More

This was a great adventure and I strongly suggest from the start that you purchase the Package Deal for Air-boat ride, Critter Show, Swamp Buggy Tour and the Snake show. All are very professionally handled and very well scheduled that you go from one to the other with just a little time in between for browsing all the other great... More
