Our very own Kirk Gimenez visited Sawgrass Recreation Park in Broward, where his airboat ride included a visit from a friendly alligator that swam along the vessel.

And then back on land he saw even more animals in their exhibits.

For more on the experience watch our video.

The day starts with the distinct sound of an airboat engine whisking you away to another land – the Everglades, where you can still have a thrilling family outing despite the Pandemic.

GatorTim Schwartzman, co-owner and General Manager, has been driving airboat tours for 15 years. This park has been here since 1962. It’s seen a lot of changes and a lot of hurricanes, but nothing like the Coronavirus which has taken a bite out of business. GatorTim wants you to know they follow all CDC guidelines, including social distancing.

Tours start at $22.95 for adults and kids are $12. For more visit EvergladesTours.Com or follow them on social media at Sawgrass Recreation Park.

GatorTim said, "come on out. I hope to see you guys, we’re looking forward to your visit.”
