Description: Wild Florida offers the most pristine airboat eco tour in the Orlando...
Wild Florida offers the most pristine airboat eco tour in the Orlando area. 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!

1hour air boat tour with Alec... Amazingly knowledgeable tour guide and lucky managed to see Gators in the lake and Eagles in the trees. Food well prepared. Animal park well laid out and more extensive than I expected. Opportunity to have photo holding Gator and reasonable priced. Will recommend to other who are visiting friends.

Absolutely loved it ... The boat trip is great and the staff all know where to find where the gators hang out even if they are well hidden, the feeding times, at the park is amazing and the whole place seems to be run by people who really care and live their jobs unlike the miserable staff we found at...

We wanted to do an airboat tour and really didn't know anything about the different companies. I picked Wild Florida based on good reviews. I didn't expect too much from the animal park, so that ended up being a huge bonus! Our boat trip was with Captain Alec. All our party felt that he had the balance just right, making... More

Great day out. We did the farm tour which was very informative and our guide was really knowledgeable about all things agricultural. The air boat ride was great fun - we got up close to two mummy alligators who were protecting their nests -and we saw lots of the local wildlife too. The wildlife park was also really good -...

My husband and I visited as part of a package organised by the Virgin concierge service and were really not disappointed. Not only were the facilities and staff at the reserve entertaining and informative, the airboat ride was amazing and allowed us to get really close to alligators in the wild. This was one of the best things we did... More

The airboat ride consisted of being taken to 3 gator nests and the captain winding the gator mums up to get them to put on a show for the airboat audience which clearly must unnecessarily stress them out. Very limited information from the captain during the airboat ride, and be aware that this is a very big set up and... More

The 60 minute airboat ride was great fun and Captain John was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and area. I recommend the 9am tour as it was not yet quite so hot and the animals were still visible. We saw alligators, a bald eagle and the best surprise - cows! In the middle of the swamp! Captain John also took... More

Did morning trip to Wild Florida with Gray Line Orlando. Really good trip and chance to see the Real Florida rather than just the Disney Parks. There is a gator pool and you can buy food to feed them which the kids really liked but the highlight was the hour airboat ride on Lake Cypress. Saw pair of Bald Eagles,... More
