Located on the beautiful shores of Cypress Lake, at the headwaters of the Everglades. Just a short drive from Orlando, the Disney area, the Space Coast, and the Orlando International Airport, Wild Florida offers the best of Central Florida's most sought after activities: airboat rides, alligators and real Florida experience. Our airboat tour is widely known as the most beautiful ride in town because of it's untouched 4,200 acre nature preserve, free of any development or signs of human life; 100% pure Florida wilderness at it's finest. We guarantee it! Come see for yourself how good it feels to be in the middle of nowhere.But the fun doesn't stop there! In addition to our incredible airboat rides, we offer a tropical bird aviary, restaurant, gift shop and 500 ft sightseeing dock. Wild Florida is owned and operated by one of Florida's pioneer families that knows the meaning of southern hospitality. Day or night, we are prepared to offer individual, family, group and corporate experiences you'll never forget. And if you thought our airboat ride was fun during the day, you should see how WILD it is at night! « less

After a bit of a wait for boarding, we were off around lake Cypress, on the hour trip..... Loads of bird life and a family of alligators, very enjoyable, and quite remote, so no houses ! There is also a small wildlife reserve you can walk around, with opportunities to have photos taken with baby alligator, and a short boardwalk.

We had the extended boat ride with "captain Dennis" who was excellent, very witty and informative. I would highly recommend this place even if they are still doing a load of building work.

The airboat ride was excellent, Captain George was the best Captain. He stopped many times to point out wildlife and interesting sights. We saw many gators (of different sizes and ages, even tiny baby gators still being watched over by their mom!), turtles, many birds and turtles. I learned a lot about gators and Florida wildlife from our Captain. The... More

My husband had meetings all day so I was looking for something to do alone. I flipped through the tourist book at the hotel and found this place. What a great adventure! I had never been in an airboat... Awesome! The wildlife in the swamp And in the refuge was lovely and my tour guide (Dennis) was informative and funny!

Today was our third trip to Wild Florida, each time we went on the airboat with Captain Jeff. He's great. Today we did the private tour. The Private Tour is a bit more pricey than the regular tour but to us it was well worth it. You get the small boat which can go places the larger boat can't go... More

We explored Wild Florida while vacationing outside of Orlando. With 4 adults and 3 children, it was a wonderful way to spend our afternoon. The 40-45 minute drive was worth it as we would have to say this was the highlight of our trip (that did not include trips to Disney). The staff was friendly, accommodating and incredibly helpful. The... More

We visit Wild Florida during our March Break. My choice of this airboat rides place was mostly due to the fact that they have a small zoo. We decided it would be interesting to spend some time there after a ride. First we were planning to take ½ hour ride, but then we found coupons in Wal-Mart for and 1... More

We really enjoyed Wild Florida Airboats. The wildlife park is not big, but you can get really close to the animals, and they are very friendly (birds, lemurs, peacocks, zebras, raccoons, etc.). You also see tons of alligators and even get to hold one at certain times of day. The airboat ride was really fun. We took the 1-hour ride.... More
