Sawgrass Recreation Park announced today the continuation of their popular night time attractions: The Red Eye Tour! and Gator Nights! This is an extraordinary opportunity to experience the Florida Everglades from a truly unique perspective, gliding over the sawgrass on an Alligator Airboat Tour and cattails at speeds in excess of 35 miles per hour, searching for Florida’s most legendary predator. Private Red Eye Tours are available for booking from 6:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M. every night of the week. One hour Gator Nights Tours are offered at 8:30 PM, every Wednesday and Saturday night.

For the ultimate Alligator Airboat Tour experience, book a private Red Eye Tour! Only your group will board one of our powerful airboats and venture deep into the night to seek out Florida’s legendary American Alligator!
