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

Went on the hour long tour. Loads to see and learn about the flora and fauna of the lake. Didn't see any gators but it was hot. Guide JR was very knowledgeable and informative. We even saw a nesting pair of bald eagles. Animal park is also interesting especially the animal encounters. All in all an excellent day out at... More

What can I say. At first I didn't really know what to expect I knew it was a boat ride over the Everglades but didn't realise how much these waters where inhabited by alligators and other wildlife. It was very picturesque. The boat was a good size and had safety railings all round. Our pilot was fantastic, humorous and very... More

We only had time for the airboat rather than the whole zoo experience but would say that this was value for money by itself. Our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. We went for the half hour ride which I would say was enough; in that time we saw a mother gator guarding her nests, a lot of waterbirds and... More

Great value for the money. The airboat ride was great. We had Captain Dennis as our pilot. He was friendly, personable and shared quite a bit of knowledge about the lake and Florida history in general. There were only 2 drawbacks we had. 1. We did not have time to actually enjoy their animal exhibit unless we wanted to sprint... More

Didn't know what to expect and was very pleased with what we found. We took a 1 hour air boat ride with a very knowledgable guide. We saw a gator nest with new hatchlings and then saw a mother gator guarding her nest. Back at the park we took a walk through the on premise zoo and saw wild animal... More

The 1/2 tour (that lasted 50 minutes, sorry Mark hope the boss doesn't get mad) was... More
