Come visit Sawgrass Recreation Park Everglades Airboat Adventures. Feel the excitement and learn the history of Florida's most remarkable treasure--the Everglades. Renew your spirit as you glide across miles of river at speeds up to 40 mph, and get up close and personal with native wildlife, many of whom are endangered in this fragile environment. Start your adventure with a 30 minute airboat tour of the Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of endangered wildlife as you skim across the glassy water. Take a walk on the wild side back in time with an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. Be sure to bring your camera, so you can capture the excitement of you cradling one of these majestic animals with our Hold a Baby Alligator experience. Your adventure will include a visit to our Exotic Wildlife exhibit. Predators Unlimited is a separate organization that brings a variety of animals to the park each day to visit. Playful critters abound and amaze as you get up close and personal with many different animals that often include panthers, tigers, and even birds of prey. While you are at Sawgrass please don't miss our Glades Exhibit! Our Glades Exhibit features tortoises, iguanas, snakes and our brand new Everglades Theater offering several variety animal educational presentations daily!
