You will get to visit exclusive locations in the Everglades and will be able to see a variety of exotic and native animals. Customize your exclusive adventure with a catered boxed lunch from The Gator Grill- our onsite food truck. Feel the excitement and learn the history of Florida's most remarkable treasure--the Everglades. As one of the rare subtropical ecosystems, the Everglades holds spectacular mysteries. 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. This once in a lifetime adventure will create lasting memories as you discover the secrets of this untamed wilderness the Seminoles called home. On our tours, feel free to let your spirit soar as you view nature at its finest.
In our Reptile Exhibit take a walk on the wild side back in time with an original dinosaur, the Florida Alligator. Our reptile exhibit features dozens of species both native and exotic to Florida. Along with our friendly turtles and iguanas, you can learn about Cannibal, our 1000 pound alligator. Our handlers are happy to demonstrate how these animals live and survive in the wild. 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 also include a visit to our Exotic Wildlife exhibit. Predators Unlimited is a separate organization that brings a variety of animals to the park each day to visit. They strive to educate and enlighten the public about endangered species like the Florida Panther. 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. The handlers are passionate about the care of these gentle animals and are happy to answer any questions.
