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.

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!

Please Note: For cruise passengers, the tour departure location is approximately 23 miles, or a 25 to 30-minute drive, from the port to the tour departure location. Transportation to the tour departure location is not included with this tour. Until June 1, the exhibit will not show any mammals and caged birds.

The information about provided of the Everglades was very interesting. The caption of the airboat provided us with a up close encounter an alligator. It wouldn't been nice to see more than one during the ride.

We did this in early December when it was about 55 degrees out so it was pretty cold in the boat, however, being able to see the gators was awesome and the tour guide was fabulous! I do recommend this excursion, just maybe when its a tad warmer :)

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.
