What You Can Expect

Florida Everglades Airboat Adventure and Wildlife Encounter Ticket

Florida Everglades Airboat Adventure and Wildlife Encounter Ticket

Sawgrass Recreation Park is only a 25-minute drive from downtown Fort Lauderdale, in the heart of the Florida Everglades.

Begin with a 30-minute airboat tour of the Everglades, and skim along the grassy water at speeds up to 40 miles per hour (64 kph) while learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem from the experienced captain. Look for a variety of wildlife, like alligators, fish, turtles and wading birds.

After the airboat ride, check out the exhibits inside Sawgrass Recreation Park:

The Reptile Exhibit features dozens of species that are both native and exotic to Florida — from turtles, iguanas and snakes to Cannibal, an intimidating 1,000-pound (454-kg) alligator. The park’s handlers are always happy to show and tell how these animals live and survive in the wild. Bring a camera to capture the 'Hold a Baby Alligator' experience.

In the Glades Exhibit, learn about the history of the area and its conservation efforts in a video presentation. Then check out the African spur thigh tortoises, which range in size from 20 to over 100 pounds (9 to over 45 kg) each, plus rare gopher tortoises (which were rescued from a construction site), iguanas and colorful peacocks.

And finally, in the Exotic Wildlife exhibit, get up close and personal with wild cats — panthers, leopards, bobcats, caracals and more.

Very nice place to visit...go early...it seems to rain more in the afternoons..we had to get a rain check and return the next day. Employees are very nice and place was clean. An hour ride would be even more fun...half an hour went by really fast. So much fun! Laura Jean Hoff Jacksonville, FL

The trip is just as advertised! Our guide was fun and informative and he got us VERY close to the gators. It is wonderful that the wildlife in the encounter zoo are all rescues saved from being put down. The entire staff was great and answered every question with a smile except for the woman at the gift area in the zoo who couldn't be bothered to get her nose out of her computer. 30 minutes goes by fast yet it was enough and perfect for the kids attention span. Go for it!
