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 really enjoyed our time out at Wild Florida as its a real contrast from the hustle and bustle of International Drive. The animal park will also give you a few hours enjoyment as you look around and see the show. All in all really good place and worth the drive out.. As some advice though, definitely take glasses or... More

The airboat experience was one of the highlights of my short trip to the US. We got up close and personal to alligators (including youngsters), found snakes, various bird life and even saw a wild racoon while we were on the airboat ride. The wildness of this area fascinated me and the experience of being on an airboat in this... More

the Neptune MS scheduled this trip and it just happened to be Jaden's 12th birthday. I had 5 youngsters under my arm to watch. We did the air boat ride, but didn't see any gators as it was rather cool that day (only about 50). The gators like the sunny days. We then went on a tour of their a... More

This was a great experience to enjoy. We found it difficult to find with the GPS, however if you go by their directions on the map they distribute it will take you there easy. After the air boat ride we enjoyed looking over all the animals they have at their establishment.

The airboat tour was the greatest, skimming along the open waters grass flats. The captain, Dennis, was knowledgeable, experienced, and more than funny telling stories of his travels on this lake and others. Ask for him when you enjoy the tour.

This place is worth the drive down from Orlando if you are there visiting the Theme Parks. We went mainly for the Airboat ride, but the conservation area was good to have a look around before the airboat ride. There was a really good demonstration from one of the wildlife officers before the airboat tour. We took the ride at... More

This was our day away from Disney and the grandchildren (9 and 11) loved it. The one hour airboat ride was fun for all of us. Seeing birds and gators wild in the swamp was a memorable experience. The kids both got to hold a 3 foot gator - mouth taped. The high point or the animal park was the... More

Great place for photos. Loved the airboat ride. Especially loved the walk to see the animals and gators. Buy the food and feed the gators. Eat there. The chef is friendly and makes great food. All the employees are friendly and efficient. There were 6 family adults in our party. We all would highly recommend it and will go back.... More
