Owner description: 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!

We went here last week as part of an all day excursion with Gray Line and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. As we were early we had a tour of the wildlife park first which had some really interesting and unique animals and swamps. We were them teamed up with Captain Alec on our airboat who was fantastic, very knowledgeable and had... More

This is the best airboat I have experienced. It has a small zoo to look around if you have to wait for any length of time and is very well organised. The airboat was well driven slow when wildlife was there for us to see but a few spurts of speed for excitement The day we went is was extremely... More

Captain Mark Evans treated us to a great hour on the aligator infested lake. You need to ask questions to get what you want from an educational perspective, but captain Evans has all the answers. great little zoo adds to the experience. For the cost, this was an excellent value.

We booked last minute, couple of hours before we arrived!! The air boat was amazing!! Just the 4 siblings (all well over 40!!!) had the best time on the boat and saw loads of crocodiles! The "zoo" was also very good, maybe the 1 or 2 animals should have had friends rather than been alone! The Croc show was informative... More

Had a fantastic trip to wild florida. Really well looked after by all the friendly staff. The BBQ food was good along with the free drinks. The airboat ride was good with a very experienced skipper. Well worth the money. A lot of money has been invested in the place.

Capt. Will took our group out on a day when the weather was cool for Florida. The advantage was that the gators were sunning themselves and we were able to get the boat RIGHT up next to several huge gators without them swimming away. One was over 10 ft long. Because we had a 3 year old along, I was... More

Captain Dennis was absolutely professional, courteous, respectful, personable and extremely informative. The hour ride was very thrilling.. my 6yr old son had a smile on his face the whole time. I'd go back in a heartbeat as the prices are very reasonable and the animal exhibits are spectacular.

Went to this place some years ago when it was just an airboat ride. A willife park has been added which makes it a much better half day out. It's quite a way from Orlando but fairly easy to find. I would suggest going here as an alternative to Gatorland, espcially if you have kids.

Our family (children ages 4-9) loved it! The airboat ride is a must-do if you haven't been on one before. We saw a number of goods sized alligators in the swamp on our ride. Kids loved everything about it. The park is cool. Not large like a big zoo but has some really cool animals. Had lunch at bbq stands... More
