Sawgrass Recreation Park Tours

Located only 30 minutes outside downtown Ft Lauderdale, the Sawgrass Recreation Park offers guided airboat rides through the marshy, humid swamp waters of the Florida Everglades. Visitors get the chance to spot alligators and other marshland animals such as pythons, black leopards, and the endangered Florida panther living in the wild. A visit to the park is a venture into the heart of Florida's past and the wilderness that it still supports today.

Those looking for a unique thrill can take part in the nighttime alligator-viewing sessions, during which it's possible to spot lurking gators by flashlight.

Practical Info

Boats leave every 20 minutes from 9:30am to 3:30pm. A final boat leaves at 5pm, but it's recommended to arrive no later than 4pm because the animal exhibits close at 5pm when the last boat boards. During the summer months, it's best to visit during morning hours—afternoons in the Everglades are prone to wind and thunderstorms. Children under age 4 enter for free, and free parking is avaliable onsite.
