Airboat Rides For A Cause: Everglades Holiday Park & Dan Marino Foundation

Airboat rides through the Everglades are always fun, but now there's even more reason to visit Everglades Holiday Park for an hour-long tour. We're pleased to announce a partnership with the Dan Marino Foundation to help promote autism awareness and raise funds for well deserving children and young adults living with autism and other developmental disabilities. Now through May 31st, 2015, you may add $1, $5, or $10 to your total purchase in support of this worthy cause.

A Unique Family Experience

Airboat rides at Everglades Holiday Park are a must-do for adventurous families looking to explore and learn about one of the most unique and magical places on Earth- the Florida Everglades. Experience up close encounters with wildlife, tropical vegetation and some of the most incredible scenery around, the Everglades ecosystem is brimming with excitement. Climb aboard a state-of-the-art airboat and whisk away across a river of grass at top speeds, slowing only to meet and greet the animals along the way. With a knowledgeable and friendly captain to narrate, your Everglades Holiday Park airboat ride is jam packed with all kinds of neat and interesting facts about the Everglades and the animals who call it home.

Strong Ties to the South Florida Community

Everglades Holiday Park is pleased to support The Dan Marino Foundation and its mission of empowering individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities. With a history of strong ties to our local community, giving back is an integral part of who we are. Whether we're honoring veterans and service members on Memorial Day with complementary airboat rides or providing school supplies for kids, we do our best to help where we can.

Join the Fun

An airboat ride and live gator show at Everglades Holiday Park is just the starting point, because we will also be participating in the 5th Annual Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism & Expo, brought to you by Walgreens. Another family fun affair, the walk and expo brings thousands of families together to generate autism awareness, promote acceptance and raise funds for Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade County schools and the local autism community.

Make sure to tune in to hear more about this fantastic partnership; Clint Bridges from Everglades Holiday Park will be on The Footy & Mike Show on WQAM 560 on Sunday, August 3rd at 9:00 a.m. and the "Here's Help" Radio Show on Y100 on August 10th at 6:00 a.m.

Join in the excitement that is Everglades Holiday Park and take an exciting airboat ride with a cause. A family friendly adventure, airboat rides offer excitement, thrills and now, the chance to support a well deserving organization like The Dan Marino Foundation. Glide across a river of grass, encounter amazing wildlife and enjoy the breathtaking Everglades that captivate and inspire us all.  Show your support by donating during a visit to the park or join us for a fun filled day of laughter and good times at the DMF WalkAbout Autism & Expo.
