Tour Participation Requirements
Embark on an Everglades experience the whole family will enjoy! This half-day tour of Sawgrass Recreation Park guarantees to be one of the top adventures you’ll have in Florida. Family-owned and operated, the park features plenty of exhibits and things to do that adults and children alike will love.
Discover the wide, wild wilderness of the Florida Everglades during your tour. Learn about the Seminole Indians, South Florida’s indigenous people, who coexisted with the abundant flora and fauna for ages. Travel along the waters of the Everglades on a 30-minute airboat tour. Your experienced captain will delve into the history of the River of Grass and how it has changed throughout the years. As you’re listening, be sure to appreciate the natural beauty around you and look for any potential animal sightings. You might spy a massive alligator lurking in the shallow water or a snake surreptitiously sliding across the grass. Above, notice the variety of birds that are soaring high in the sky.
The best time at Sawgrass Recreation Park isn’t just on the airboat tour, however. The park features some of the top exhibits in all of South Florida! For all things scaly, make your way to the alligator and reptile exhibit. You’ll find creatures that are both native and exotic to the region. Greet the friendly turtles and iguanas, as well as Cannibal, the resident 1,000-pound gator! If you wish, you might even have a chance to hold a baby alligator, which certainly makes for a memorable experience.
Sawgrass Recreation Park also provides activities with an educational slant. See handpicked exotic animals brought in by Predators Unlimited, an organization that brings in animals for a daily visit. Get informed about how these endangered creatures survive and exist in their habitat; enjoy an up-close interaction with them, too. For a truly hands-on experience, prepare to feed and pet animals at the Swamp Yard exhibit. Have the best time at the always-entertaining Sawgrass Recreation Park.
