  • My 13 year old daughter and I visited the park for a girl day out. The airboat ride was fast and fun (even if Captain John wasn't allowed to do donuts!) and we enjoyed ourselves very much. The captain...  more »

  • Admission here gets you a guided airboat tour of the local Everglades (30 minutes), admission to the rescued animal exhibits and often the opportunity to hold a small gator. Worth the cost and a nice ...  more »

  • We went on a cooler morning. We had a 60 min private tour, saw a few gators and turtles, anhingas, vultures, and an osprey. The guide was very kind and catered to our group. I like that they provide ear plugs! The animal exhibits we're okay, very small. I felt sorry for the animals. The big cat show was a little sad. They pointed to the cats and told you a few interesting facts, and then brought out an owl to show. It was fun to see, though.
  • AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. you get to see wild alligators on the air boat ride.. soft shell turtles, birds and fish.. they also have their own exhibits after the boat tour where u can hold a baby alligator. See wild cats. Foxes, possums, must go
  • This place is amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable. You can even hold a baby gator at their zoo if that's your thing. It's cheaper and a better value than anywhere else. Hands down.
  • I was looking for a less kitschy, more natural airboat experience, and Sawgrass was perfect for me. The guide was informative and fun, and the whole company seemed to respect and appreciate nature. Our captain, Paul, allowed us to hop onto his boat when we missed our original group. Related to that, it’s easy to miss the announcements for boarding, and we got some misinformation about how much time we had before our trip. It worked out fine though! The 30 minutes goes quickly because it’s such a fun time, but the price for the ride was great. The wildlife exhibits were also really interesting, and we were able to see rescued animals that we otherwise might never have. I would definitely recommend this to those looking for an airboat tour, and I would come back to Sawgrass!
  • Cool tour in an airboat. My 4 year old went and had a good time. They gave her a life jacket, and we got very close to an alligator, but we felt safe the whole time. You can buy pictures from the trip. Didn't have time to stop at the cafe, but got a cute alligator water bottle.
