This groupon is pretty cool. I did it with 2 kids and my boyfriend and we went on the boat ride, than walked around the area where there are all size types of gators, some other animals to view, little gift shop type of area and a food truck. The food truck wasn't too expensive and we ate the gator bites awesome. My kids enjoyed the airboat ride it does make loud noise and my kids were 6 and 8 at the time of the ride.

Everyone was really nice and very professional. The tour was good, we did see a few gators and a turtle. The boat ride was smooth but noisy.

About Sawgrass Recreation Park

Laced with the sounds of water churned by unseen forces, the thick air that hangs above the Everglades whispers the rhythms of gator country. The murky water—obscured further by curtains of cattails and floating lily pads—defies human incursion, its protective spells demystified only by the airboat captains of Sawgrass Recreation Park, who gamely shuttle laypersons through the swamp in tours by day and night. While gliding across the shallows at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour, guides halt the propellers of their enormous fans to point out wildlife—which include alligators and various waterfowl—and impart nuggets of history from the days when the Seminole and panther once shared their claim over the terrain. As a part of a conservationist group's effort to educate the public about ongoing rescue efforts in the Everglades, the exotic-wildlife exhibit brings guests face to face with the swamp's most majestic rarities, including black leopards and Florida panthers. In the park's reptile exhibit, dozens of scaly creatures count among them a 1,000-pound alligator named Cannibal, and guests can cradle prehistoric cuties in the Hold a Baby Alligator experience. The Glades Exhibit animals exhibit encourages guests to meet or catch a glimpse of tortoises, a water monitor, pigs and iguanas, letting guests establish a deeper bond with the denizens of the swamp.

Sawgrass Recreation Park also strives to educate and enlighten the public about endangered species like the Florida Panther. Mammals in their care are adopted and rescued from facilities who lose their licensing or individuals who possessed the animal illegally. Playful critters abound and amaze as visitors get up close and personal with many different animals that often include panthers, leopards, caracal's, a bobcat, and even some surprise smaller mammals each day.
