Airboat ride through subtropical U.S.A.

- Spot rare and endangered species, such as the American crocodile or Florida panther, in their natural habitats, as well as a variety of local inhabitants

Get adventurous on this wild half-hour airboat trip through the Florida Everglades - the largest subtropical wilderness in the US. You’ll experience nature at its best as you skim through Sawgrass Recreation Park. Beautiful landscapes and alligators, panthers, turtles and wading birds are all there for the viewing. Captained by highly-trained and knowledgeable staff, an airboat ride through this remarkable landscape is not only informative, but exhilarating!
Turtles, tortoises, and birds galore, the Everglades also provide shelter for a variety of rare species, such as the American crocodile, manatee, and even the Florida panther, so keep your eyes wide open as you power through the park.
The 30-minute airboat tour will take you out into the untamed wilderness, along the famous River of Grass. Enjoy the natural serenity of this unique landscape as you glide along the water.
After the airboat tour, take a stroll through the three exhibition areas where visitors can get up close (but not too close!) to both native and exotic animals. Although the animals on display may change from day to day, the Florida panther and black leopard are often seen here.
And of course, there is no shortage of reptile guests. Viewers get educated on (and fascinated by) the iguanas, turtles and alligators. Brave visitors can even hold a baby crocodile, a truly memorable experience. Don’t forget to take a photo!
Airboat adventures and close encounters with the reptilian kind, no wonder this is one of the top attractions in South Florida.

Good to know

Wir sahen einen einzigenAligator bei dem wir mindestens 10 Minuten standen, unser Skipper erklärte uns alles über den Alligator auf Englisch. Nur wenn man absolut perfekt englisch spricht,versteht man einiges, sonst leider nichts. Nach 10 Minuten fuhren wir dann weiter durch die Everglades, und sahen einen einzigen Vogel auf einem Baum sitzen. Auch über den Vogel referierte unser Skipper 10 Minuten. Danach war die Fahrt beendet. Ich fand es einfach nur schade, so wenig Airboot fahrt, es war gefühlt 200 m hinaus in die Everglades und 200 m zurück mehr war es nicht.
Schade. In den Everglades selbst, auf der Anhinga Trail sahen wir mindestens 40 Alligatoren direkt am Rand des Trails keinen Meter von uns weg, das war ein absolutes Abenteuer
