Stay on I-75 North until you come to Exit 23 North (U.S. Highway 27) towards South Bay. We are just two miles to the North on the right hand side of the road.

On this Everglades National Park nighttime airboat tour, glide along the grassy water at speeds of up to 40 miles (64 kilometers) per hour while listening to fun facts and learning about the area’s subtropical ecosystem. Your seasoned captain gives you tips on how to spot a variety of wildlife—like alligators, fish, turtles, and wading birds—and listen for the sounds of the Everglades’ nocturnal creatures.

This private night tour has its advantages over the larger, public tour, including a smaller boat that travels deeper into the Everglades and for a longer period of time.

During the daytime hours, check out the exhibits inside Sawgrass Recreation Park, just a 25-minute drive from downtown Fort Lauderdale.

The Reptile Exhibit features dozens of species that are both native and exotic to Florida—from turtles, iguanas and snakes to Cannibal, an imposing 1,000-pound (454-kilogram) alligator. Capture a frame-worthy picture during the 'Hold a Baby Alligator' experience, and feel free to ask the park’s handlers questions about how these animals live and survive in the wild.

In the Glades Exhibit, watch a video called 'Our Everglades Story' and learn about the area's conservation efforts. Then, check out African spur thigh tortoises, which range in size from 20 to over 100 pounds (9 to over 45 kilograms) each, as well as rare gopher tortoises (rescued from a construction site), iguanas, and peacocks.

Don't miss the Exotic Wildlife exhibit, where you can enjoy up-close views of wild cats—panthers, leopards, bobcats, caracals, and more.

A la tombée de, la nuit et en aéroglisseur privé ce fut beaucoup plus intéressant que le jour. Nous avons vu des alligators de tous âges, et nous avons circulé avec enchantement sur cette magnifique étendue d'eau et d'herbes. Le prix est un peu élevé mais cela fera j'en suis sûre un très beau souvenir pour nous tous.
