Florida Everglades Airboat and Wildlife Experience

Cast off on this unique and exciting group airboat tour of the Florida Everglades and experience the raw beauty of this singular subtropical ecosystem. Come face to face with egrets, turtles, gators, and so much more, all from the safety and comfort of an airboat.

Your tour begins deep in the heart of the Florida Everglades at the Sawgrass Recreational Park, conveniently located only 30 minutes from Fort Lauderdale. Meet your knowledgeable and experienced captain as you climb aboard the speediest of airboats for a 30 minute tour of this spectacular natural environment. Go deep into the sawgrass and cattails of the Everglades, where you'll find all manner of exotic wildlife waiting to be encountered. Your airboat captain will guide you through this incredible wilderness, blasting through swampland at thrilling speeds of up to 40 miles-per-hour. You'll learn about the native Seminole tribes that inhabited this area, as well as the panthers, gators, and snakes who shared the rivers and swamps with them.

Once your exhilarating airboat tour is over, your tickets grant you access to all the exhibits and shows at the Sawgrass Park. Meet Cannibal, the park's 1000 pound Florida alligator at the park's reptile exhibit. There, you'll also encounter dozens of reptile species both native and exotic to the Florida Everglades, including friendly turtles and iguanas. And don't forget your camera because you won't want to miss the chance to show everyone at home how you expertly handled a baby alligator.

Cap off your visit with some of Florida's most magnificent exotic wildlife. Meet the extremely rare black leopard and the endangered Florida panther and learn how much care goes into preserving this delicate ecosystem and its inhabitants.

Everglades airboat tours operate 7 days a week starting just after 9:00 AM. They continue every 20-30 minutes throughout the day until 3:30 PM with a final airboat adventure departing at 4:00 PM. The cost of the tour also grants you access to all intriguing exhibits at the Sawgrass Park. Experience firsthand the wonder and majesty of the Florida Everglades and all of its wildlife on this tour you won't soon forget!

Reviewer: Tony
Wow !!! What a fun trip this was! Our guide made it very clear up front. "I can't guarantee that you'll see alligators...but you'll probably see alligators". And did we ever...we saw six...with virtually all of them swimming right up to the boat for great photos. Jetting thru the Glades was something I'll never forget. Knowledgeable guide, great scenery, and a "boatload" of fun! Highly recommend you give it a try.

Reviewer: Mellissa Jeffrey
This was my first and definitely not my last time enjoying an airboat ride. Our operator was so knowledgeable about the history, ecology and future of the Everglades. I'd recommend this to anyone who loves adding an educational element to their vacations.

Reviewer: JaAn Littlefield
What a super fun excursion. Even though we went in April and that is mating season, we saw plenty of alligators. Our Captain was awesome and very informative and the rescue/wildlife center was cool too. I recommend this for anyone that has a little extra time before or after your cruise. We went the day our cruise returned.

I plan on doing it again so my daughter can do it with me. I had never done it before and I enjoyed it. We did it before we home on our flight right after our cruise.

The Airboat ride was fun and informative didn't see as many alligators as we would of liked but certainly not the fault of the tour. The Wildlife experience was informative and fun. Holding a baby alligator was not at all what I expected.
