Tour Details

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. From the reptile exhibit, move on to the unique “Swamp”yard Island and get cozy with the park’s collection of potbellied pigs, ducks, peacocks, and more.

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 a.m. They continue every 20-30 minutes throughout the day until 3:30 p.m. with a final airboat adventure departing at 4:00 p.m. . The cost of the tour also grants you access to all intriguing exhibits at the Sawgrass Park. Be sure to bring your camera and sunscreen, and to dress in comfortable clothing and rubber soled shoes. Experience firsthand the wonder and majesty of the Florida Everglades and all of its wildlife on this tour you won’t soon forget.
