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 talk about how these animals live and survive in the wild.

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 a peek at the park's wild cats — panthers, leopards, bobcats, caracals, and more.

It was a great introduction to airboating on the Everglades, for a great price. The length of the ride was perfect. Saw an alligator and an osprey in the wild. The captain, Brenda?? Canadian lady was great - informative, funny and definitely in charge. Was really frustrated about not being able to get lunch for hungry family because the only food truck was closed to cater a private event. Might want to get a backup food vendor for those times.

Excellent services, facilities were clean, our tour guide was very friendly and knew about everything of the everglades. She made the impossible so we can see at least one aligator. Great experience.

Wow - what a great trip on the Airboat Everglades adventure - Captain Bob was informative and amusing. The Wildlife encounter was a real bonus and we enjoyed seeing the alligators and the animals and birds that had been rescued and had been given a new home.
Lovely staff around the park with great knowledge of the animals and also the staff in the gift shop.
