Learn about Florida's famous Everglades National Park via airboat at Sawgrass Recreation Park. A knowledgeable captain leads the 30-minute boat trip and shares plenty of information about the marshy ecosystem. Keep your eyes peeled for native wildlife, such as alligators. All airboat tickets also include entrance to the park's exhibit areas and animal shows. Don't miss the chance to hold a baby alligator. Exhibits-only tickets are also available but do not include access to the park's animal shows. Buy your tickets online in advance for significant savings.

  • It is a time of the year where, unfortunately, the water is at a high level as infrequently it is. We never saw so that a single alligator. But it is not the fault of the park. In addition, Captain Jim was wonderful. He's funny, full of knowledge and he is a great speaker. Everything to please. I loved the park compared to Everglades holiday park, which is much more expensive and much too touristy for my taste. Those who are looking for a beautiful gift shop worship of sawgrass. Best quality. Cleaner and especially cheaper.

  • The tour guides were friendly and if you get to see an alligator they bring you very close to it which we thoroughly enjoyed. It’s nice to have the added bonus of the exhibit. MUST try the gator bite ...  more »

  • I liked this place wish the animal exhibit was bigger. I wanted to taste gator but they had no gotten free options. Super disappointed in that. The gift shop is nice but does not have enough options or unique options. Our tour guide was very informative and nice. We got to see a few Gators but the tour was too short. About $30 for a 30 minute tour. I would have liked to have a longer option without having it be a private tour.
  • The family and I checked another box off the bucket list, fan boat tour in the Everglades. We picked the best place, too. Sawgrass Recreational Park was a beautiful place!! All of the staff especially Captain John were friendly and welcoming. We had the most fun!
  • This is a professionally run airboat ride and Animal Sanctuary. Although we didn't see any live animals during our ride, the guide was very knowledgeable about the wildlife, the types of grass in the Everglades and was great at telling stories of how the Native Americans survived in this type of ecosystem. The animal sanctuary was very impressive and the Gators are huge. The kids really enjoyed it.
  • Great place to go experience nature. Take the kids but remember the sun block. The tour is about an hour long in total. The boat ride is cool!! They have an area to see other wildlife after the boat tour is over and even have a food truck outside and a gift shop. Check it out!
  • My first time here and it was amazing! You can tell the trainers care about the rescued animals and the airboat show was spectacular. Great for all ages, my 2 year old loved it. I would definitely come back.
