This is great fun for a family day out. The 1 hour trip is definitely better than to shorter 30 min option. We got to see a mother alligator on her nest as well as wild birds and the Cypress tree grove. The best part however, was flying over the water in an air boat as it slides between the vegetation. Worth it for the air boat trip alone. On top of that there is free access to the Wild Florida animal park making this a true experience. Loved it
I would have been nice if the airboat has section where they went faster.
This was such a terrific day out and every single one of our party of 8 had a ball. The airboat experience was temendous with Captain Dennis & the VIP sloth experience was hugely enjoyable. Trust me, you will love your day out here.
The staff were very friendly and the air boat captain was very knowledgable, the shows were interesting and it was really good to see some of the wildlife of Florida.
Nice, relaxing ride. Marc was a wonderful guide!
The airboat tour was so fun, the facilities were great! Clean and fun! We loved seeing all the alligators and other animals after our boat tour!
We've previously done the Boggy Creek airboat rides on two occasions and I thought we'd try something different after seeing a Wild Florida add. The journey time was a little longer but we did get to see some different views of the Florida landscape, giving a more realistic appreciation of the countryside instead of the concrete jungle of I-Drive & 192 etc. On arrival the team were very welcoming and efficient and we were wrist-banded up and given maps and timing instructions very quickly allowing us to get on with touring the park before our airboat ride. The crusher show was quite spectacular especially when the handler got in the pool with him!!!. The airboat ride was brilliant (but we had to wait 45 mins for a storm to pass first, not an issue) and then it was out onto the lake which is smaller than Toho but we saw a lot more wildlife than in the previous Toho rides as the trip pretty much covers the whole lake. We got a transiting male gator which the captain said was a lucky break as they mostly sit on the bottom from late morning and then saw 4 or 5 females guarding their nests, together with Bald Eagles, Snail Kites and the usual waterfowl. To top everything off when walking back down the jetty from the airboat landing stage I spotted the biggest gator we'd seen all day hiding under the jetty in the rushes, he must have been 10-15 feet long, a real beast - eventually he sank from sight as a crowd gathered wondering what I was watching, and it got a bit too busy for him. My Mrs wasn't so sure about making the trip initially as it was longer than travelling to Boggy Creek, or going for the 1Hr instead of 30 minutes, but afterwards said it was absolutely brilliant and she loved every minute. Give Wild Florida a try, it is well worth the extra journey time. Good food in the restaurant as well.
This was a fantastic experience - something different to the parks. We had a brilliant day. The airboat ride was amazing, helped by a very knowledgeable guide. The Gator Park and Animal Encounters were wonderful.
Booking easy and communication very good. One of our party of 8 fell ill while we were there and could not go on the airboat ride, staff were very helpful and kindly offered to refund her. Would highly recommend.
Very knowledgeable staff and very accommodating.
Well worth the money.
The staff was very courteous and helpful. Captain John was very knowledgeable about the indigenous plants and wildlife. It was an awesome experience for the entire family!
Highly recommend this place! Our guide was great and very informative!
Excellent day spent at wild Florida. Boat ride was fantastic with a local captain who made sure we saw plenty of wildlife not just alligators. Would highly recommend
When we booked this we expected to spend a couple of hours there and didn’t expect as much as we found, but the place is superb. The airboat tour was amazing and took in an hour of the 4000acre swampland and we saw wild alligator as many birds and other wildlife (even though the kids were scared of the bugs!) and the guide was informative and fun.
The lunch was of very good quality and the experience of feeding and holding the alligator was amazing.
On top of this, the other animals ranging from zebras and petting too to birds and snakes was very good and you could get hands on with some animals and walk in with then birds. There is also a good kids play area and a walk over three wanted to spot wildlife.
We booked the half day adventure but ended up spending most of the day walking round and the kids has a blast.
Highly recommend for anyone visiting Florida or Disney as it’s only and hours drive and very good value.
It was a great experience, and the boat ride was the highlight for sure. We saw a gator, bald eagle and a snake! It was fantastic
Captain Todd was very informative and entertaining, the animals in the enclosures were very well looked after.
We liked the airboat ride and the shows very much!
Great ride with really fun driver. Run to time and the extra animal shows were a bonus!
Our driver, John, was very personable on the ride, showed us lots of nature and answered all sorts of questions for us all. At the very end of our tour he was able to find a bald eagle in a tree for us. It was an amazing ride!
Beautiful and relaxing place!
It was everything I expected.
Best day of our holiday was Wild Florida. Airboat was great, especially seeing the baby Alligators.
The Alligator feeding, and Crusher shows were amazing to watch. I especially enjoyed feeding the birds and animals. It was really value for.money with so many shows on throughout the day. Can also recommend the burgers and chicken tenders!
Great guide...knows his stuff. !
Everyone was extremely kind and happy and helpful. Beautiful grounds, great animals! My sister and I spent the entire day here and we loved the hour long airboat ride!
We gave up a day at Disney to do this, and it was different, fun, and educational, and I had three teenagers for me. It made for some great memories.
We got to see some alligators in the wild.
Had a fun airboat ride & very informative. We saw lots of birds & a few alligators.
Excellent service. Great tour guide. Safe!
Was absolutely awesome. Loved ever minute of it. It was my second time this month. Your food prices are way too high though. Leaves a bad feeling.
What a hidden gem!!! I have lived in Florida all my life and had never been. I decided to bring my best friend for her birthday to enjoy an hour air airboat ride and take some pictures. Not only was the airboat tour amazing with the wildlife you get to see but our captain Denis was so funny and made the trip a truly memorable one! I would highly recommend this for anyone looking to experience real Florida wildlife and awesome airboat tours.
Our guide was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and alligators in general. We were able to see 3 alligators on our tour. The Airboat was great and we just enjoyed being on the water and learning more about Florida and the wildlife.
Beautiful trip to see ‘Wild Florida’ at it’s best.We went for the 9am boat and got to see a lot of Alligators and native birds.Our Captain Denis was very informative and entertaining.A very worthwhile trip for all four of us..two adults and two teens.
The checkin, staff and facility were awesome! We loved the boat ride & had so much fun at the park!
Our tour guide was very knowledgable and answered all of our questions with enthusiasm.
We saw lots of birds and alligators! The cool March day was perfect! Our kids also loved the “zoo” area.
