Feel the excitement and learn the history of Florida's most remarkable treasure--the Everglades. Renew your spirit as you glide across miles of river at speeds up to 40 mph, and get up close and personal with native wildlife, many of whom are endangered in this fragile environment. Start your adventure with a 30-minute airboat tour of the Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of endangered wildlife as you skim across the glassy water. After your boat ride, stroll through our included exhibit areas featuring over 100 reptiles and mammals that have been adopted and rescued. Over a dozen fun and educational presentations are included daily! In our Reptile Exhibit take a walk on the wild side back in time with an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. Be sure to bring your camera, so you can capture the excitement of you cradling one of these majestic animals with our " Hold a Baby Alligator" experience. Your adventure will include a visit to our Exotic Wildlife exhibit. Playful critters abound and amaze as you get up close and personal with many different animals that often include panthers, leopards, and even birds of prey. Our Glades Exhibit features a variety of educational presentation in our brand new "Everglades Theater", also see reptiles like tortoises, iguanas and more. Be sure to stop by The Gator Grill for lunch before you leave. Enjoy Gator Bites, tacos, burgers, a special kids meal and more at our onsite food truck.
