This place was great! I loved the airboat ride. We saw many gators and soft shell turtles. The captain was very informative. The exhibit was nice. There was an employee there who answered all my questions. And the animals are all rescue which is very nice. The food truck was good and the gift shop has a great selection. I recommend this place.

My family and I had a great time on this tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a great education on the the park and history. We took a family picture and forgot to pick it up on our way out. I gave them a call and they mailed our picture to our home in AZ. Great service. Thank you Sawgrass Recreation.

To make it short and sweet. The boat ride is not friendly for toddlers like they say they ear buds don't fit and are not environmentally friendly they shold provide proper ear protection. It was a terrible experience and I was hoping the animal exibits would be better but wow not at all. People pass around baby crocs with their mouths tapped shut and it's just sad there is a huge crock in a tiny enclosure. They have nocturnal animals out in the day that probably only get fed in the day so they are active for the guest to see. It was sad the employees lack basic conservation knowledge and will argue with you on weather exotic animals should be kept as pets or not it's just awful do not support this overpriced exportation side show.

Tiffany, thank you for sharing your experience. We strive to provide a quality and educational Everglades adventure for all. Our ear protection that is selected is one of the best noise blockers available and we are sorry they did not work for your toddler. We care very deeply for our animals and I am sorry that it did not come across during your visit to us. We will take your comments to the staff and share them to check for any ways we can improve. Many thanks again!

Riding an airboat at high speed through the everglades was really a thrill. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and filled us in on a lot of the science and history of the everglades and its wildlife. We saw two alligators and a variety of birds, including osprey and cranes. After our boat ride, we went to the zoo area. There were three parts to the zoo. The first was a reptile section that featured a variety of large snakes and lizards, as well with alligators that had been injured and couldn't return to the wild. There was also a lone american crocodile and a caiman there, for comparison. The staff here were also very friendly and informative, and while the collection of animals was small, the staff made it very interesting. The second area of the zoo featured farm animals, but we skipped this area. The third area featured more exotic wildlife, including a Florida panther, a black leopard, and smaller mammals such as bobcats, skunks, racoons, and a fennec fox.

I went with a group of four adults and seven children from 4- 7 years old who enjoyed the air boat ride with Captain Chuck. He was hilarious, entertaining and informative. We were also impressed by their small yet educational and hands on exhibits. definite place to revisit.

Worst ride ever, stay away!!! This place is a rip off. The people are there just to take your money and do not provide any services. The boat ride was not as advertised and it was not professional. Do not waste your money here.

This is a great place for an air boat tour of the Everglades. If you have about an hour or so free when in the Fort Lauderdale area, I would recommend you check this place out. The staff is very friendly and knowledgable. The air boat tour is about 30 mins and then you have access to their exhibits. When we went, we saw about 5 alligators, but just like fishing, there is no guarantee you'll see anything. You're allowed to bring snacks and drinks on the boat. They also sell plenty of stuff where you buy tickets. You don't really have to make a reservation or buy tickets in advance. Probably a good idea during peak season but they have boats that run about every 30 minutes so you'll be able to get on one. You can buy tickets through their site or sometimes they offer stuff on Groupon. They offer great discounts for military, law enforcement, and flight crews (don't forget to bring you ID).
