Experience one of the ‘must do’ Florida activities and join an accessible airboat tour through the Everglades grass and waterlands.

This accessible one-hour airboat tour is led by the oldest Everglades tour operator in the area and has been specially adapted to accommodate visitors with reduced mobility. There are dedicated disabled parking bays in front of the center and the pathway to the jetty is smooth and slopes gently. The airboat can accommodate up to 2 wheelchairs per tour, which are firmly secured at the front of the boat. Staff are on hand to provide assistance, if necessary.

Once in the boat, the tour will head out and explore the Everglades, with several stops along the way to point out local wildlife and to talk about the unique ecology of the area. You may be lucky enough to spot alligators, herons, turtles, raccoons and the Purple Gallanule, voted Florida’s most colorful bird. You will also see a small island which is only accessible by boat and which has an old cabin that used to be a camp for the Glades men.

At the end of the tour, you will return to the center and can explore the reptile exhibits, and a 20-minute reptile show is included in your ticket price, as well as the opportunity to hold a baby alligator.

You can also call in at the Coopertown Restaurant, which serves Everglades specialties such as frogs legs, alligator tails and catfish. These Floridian foods and more are also for sale at the gift shop.
