See the Everglades National Park on your own. This is much more than just an air-boat ride; it is a journey into wild nature itself. Visit the Sawgrass Recreation Park and discover endangered and exotic wildlife! Start this adventure with a 30-minute airboat ride in the Florida Everglades. Your tour will be guided by experienced captains who have received extensive training. During the tour, you'll listen to the tales of how the Seminole and panther once coexisted in this lush wilderness. Also, you'll catch a glimpse of endangered wildlife as you skim across the glassy waters. Feel free to let your spirit soar as you view nature at its finest.
Your adventure will include a visit to the Exotic Wildlife exhibit. A separate organization brings a variety of animals to the park each day to visit. They strive to educate and enlighten the public about endangered species like the Florida Panther, leopards, wolves and even some smaller mammals each day. The handlers are passionate about the care of these gentle animals and are happy to answer any questions. Please note that the variety of animals on display may change from day to day and there is no guarantee of specific animals at any time.
Take a walk on the wild side, back in time, with an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. The reptile exhibit features dozens of species both native and exotic to Florida. Along with the friendly turtles and iguanas, you can learn about Cannibal, the 1,000-pound alligator. The handlers are happy to demonstrate how these animals live and survive in the wild. There is also a variety of monitors and rescued exotic snakes. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the excitement of you cradling one of these majestic animals with the "Hold a Baby Alligator" experience.
