Amazing time!!
Nicole Godwin, Jan 2021 Verified
I love the airboat ride, not only did we see alligators, but rare birds and iguanas as well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Make sure you go when the sun is out as your chances of seeing gators are better. The rest of the park is average, they a variety of food and drinks but none of which are suitable for vegans so make sure to pack snacks as needed.

We had a great time at the Sawgrass park, the guide was cool and we saw some alligators and tried the gator bites too, delicious . We recommend
Good way to kill half day waiting for Airbnb check in

Air Boat ride was cool but only saw a blue heron, a couple birds and one alligator - Mr T. Good news is that Sawgrass Rec Park has an animal rescue so after the boat ride we were able to see various rescued reptiles up close and even got to hold a baby alligator. The caretaker gave an informative talk on alligators and went into the habitat with an 8 foot female and 14 foot male (he crazy) to show how differently the male and female respond to humans, female retreats, male holds his ground to protect his turf! This all made the excursion well worth it :)

Random Weekend Adventure
Drew Rose, Jan 2020 Verified
My husband and I booked a random trip to Miami last minute with no plans. We came across this tour while searching for things to do. The price is extremely fair for a 30 minute boat tour. Even though it was pretty windy and too cold for the gators to come up to the surface of the water for photo ops, captain Crystal was AWESOME! She kept the tour fun, interactive, and her knowledge of the Everglades was incredibly interesting. The exhibits and opportunity to hold a baby gator was worth the money alone! Thank you for a great time!!-Drew

Though it is short, the tour includes a visit to reptile exposition and the guide tells a lot of thing about the environment and the animal
