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!

Excellent experience! My wife and I took our four boys (ages 7, 4, 3 and 1) on a 1/2 hour airboat ride at 9am, easily could have done the 1-hour had it not been fully booked for any parents reading reviews to determine what their...More

Cool experience! Park was fun looking around at different types of animals. Being on the airboat was a cool experience. Didn't see much gators but we still enjoyed it all the same!

I would recommend the 1 hour airboat tour. Our guide was funny and very knowledgeable. Ride was fun and comfortable and we managed to avoid a storm thanks to expert navigation.

I've been here twice now and I'll be back again. The hour airboat ride is excellent with up close (safe!) sightings of at least three large gators each time out. That's why we went, but we were happily surprised to experience the impressive nature sanctuary...More

I have been to 2 other airboat rides in the Orlando area and this was substantially better. the zoo, the beauty of the area, the guides. Id say so far my best air boat ride. No need to look elsewhere :)

Do the animals here seem happy and well cared for? Are the enclosures clean? Do they have fresh food and water? I have read that some enclosures are a little on the small side. These are things I really consider before visiting places with animals. Thanks guys!

Some of the cages are a bit small, but honestly, this place is as nice as most major zoos I have been to (and I have been to close to 30 zoos nationally). The animals in the smaller cages are generally "small" animals like... More
I am planning on driving from the theme parks but am a little concerned that this might really be in the middle of nowhere! Can you tell me how far away from the closest town the attraction is, is there cell service and are the roads all fully paved? Might sound weird but I spent a few weeks in Arizona and driving to a couple of places I wanted to see made me uncomfortable - the drives were long and very isolated. If this is the case I won't drive I will book bus transport but if it's not isolated and full cell service I will drive. Thanks in advance!
