See Alligators In The Wild On An Everglades Airboat Tour With Sawgrass Recreation Park In Florida

Made up of coastal mangroves, sawgrass marshes, and pine flatwoods home to hundreds of animal species, the Florida Everglades are a thing of immense natural beauty — and a little mystery, too. On a recent trip to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to visit my family, I jumped at the opportunity to experience one of the area’s biggest tourist draws — an airboat tour. After some research, I easily settled on a tour at Sawgrass Recreation Park. Not only was it close to our lodging in Deerfield Beach and top-rated, but it was also affordable for our group of five, and the website reassured me that it was safe to take my two-year-old. Let’s embark on a one-of-a-kind adventure to see alligators in the wild, shall we?


From my experience, an airboat tour with Sawgrass Recreation Park is easily one of the coolest experiences in the Fort Lauderdale area. Visit the Sawgrass Recreation Park website to learn more and make a reservation.
