    Wild Florida Airboats
    Stop: 5 hours - Admission included
    Hop aboard your comfortable coach at a selected meeting point in Orlando, and prepare to head deep into the Everglades for a full day tour. The day starts with a 60-minute airboat ride that takes you across some of the region’s 100,000 acres of protected swamps, marshes and rivers. The final stop on your 6-hour adventure is Wild Florida Wildlife Park, where more than 100 different species of animals live. Take a guided tour to see native land-dwelling animals such as white-tailed deer and tortoises; tropical birds in the bird aviary; and exotic animals including water buffalo, emu, zebu, sloths, lemurs, watusis and zebras. It's also where you'll have a lunch that includes a choice of pulled pork, chicken and cheeseburgers. Over at the gator platform, you can watch demos and feedings, and maybe even pose near the scaly stars in some photos. At the end of your visit, head back to Orlando.

    My grandkids came for an early Christmas and asked about the Zebras and the Watusi that we use to watch on Pine Grove. Unfortunately, they moved away from our area. Kevin use to tell his little brother about seeing them every day when he went to see his JPA and MeMaw in Florida.

    The tour guide, Naomi, was great, very friendly and knew a lot. The drive is pleasant and great to see out of Orlando. The airboat was the absolute highlight, interesting to be out in the water. It was a cold day but so worth it! Saw so much wild bird life and some baby

    We thoroughly enjoyed our whole experience at Wild Florida, expected to just do the airboat ride (which was fantastic enough on it's own) but we never expected to enjoy the rest of the park so much and the crocodile feeding show was done brilliantly, the swamp is also well worth

    Thank you so much for sharing your feedback as it is very important to us. We have centralized pick up locations as Orlando is so spread out it would be hard for any tour company to collect everyone from their own hotel. We want the pick ups to be as quick as possible so you can enjoy more time on the tour. Florida is definitely the leader in bugs. We have different kinds at different times of the year as well as the weather is hit or miss sort of speak. Alligators as well like to grace us with their presence when they see fit. I am happy to know that you enjoyed the day and that Madeline was able to be part of that. Please do email us direct about the email correspondence so that I may look into this. This is not the service that we pride ourselves on and I would like to have it addressed so that it doesn't happen again in the future. Please email Kristin at reservations@floridadolphintours.com. Thank you again for your feedback!

    Enjoyed this experience. The airboat ride was great even though we didn't see too much (it was too hot for the crocs to be out) but we did see baby crocs and a mother in the weeds keeping an eye on them. Our granddaughter loved the sloth experience too!!
