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

A real gem of a find and brilliant afternoon out. The airboat ride was awesome with a guide who was equally passionate about the wildlife as he was about conservation. We would happily visit again and would highly recommend to anyone wanting an insight into seeing a wilder side of Florida.

A great attraction we had a marvelous time. We only did the half hour airboat trip but I really recommend that you do the full hour because its a great experience. The wildlife park is really nice too with friendly staff to tell you about the animals. The high lite is feeding the birds in the aviary.

The whole experience it a lovely one, that goes without saying, Fab location and not just a back alley business. We ran late for our online booked airboat ride, and after a quick call we were very kindly bumped to a later boat. The set up of the place is nice, with a well set up wildlife zoo to walk... More

This place is about 60 minutes out of central Orlando but worth the drive. We had travelled to the USA with virgin and booked this through them. We arrived and had drinks, followed by a tour of the wildlife park. It was great to walk across a timber walkway and view the swampland and the Cypress trees with the Spanish... More

We stayed in Kissimmee and drove the 45 minutes to this zoo/ park. The only problem with the drive is that you need to exit BEFORE the actual exit unless you have a sunpass (toll tag). If you miss this exit, you have to drive an additional thirty minutes, make a u-turn and then drive some more. Other than missing... More

Went to another Airboat operator last year but enjoyed this experience much better. Capt Will was awesome and gave us a great ride. Really enjoyed the wildlife park and particularly liked the relaxed low key approach by the staff to buy photographs after handling Alligators. Although it's a 40 min drive from Orlando its a pleasant drive and worth it.... More

My wife always wanted to do an airboat ride, which booked through our hotel´s tourdesk. If you want to see lots of wildlife take the first airboat ride of 9 am - our guide, Denis, did a great job by stopping when to point out wildlife and the official 1 hour airboat ride in fact was more than an hour....

Great airboat ride and pleasant walk through the animal exhibits. Staff is very friendly. Best time to see alligators on the water is first thing in the morning and at sunset in the evening.
