Description:

Wild Florida offers the most pristine airboat eco tour in the Orlando area....

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!

Exceeded our expectations! Captain Logan showed us alligators and other wildlife in their natural habitat - something we can't see back home in California. Lee who runs the gift shop went above and beyond! She is a great merchandiser, lots of novelty items. Be sure to bring back a unique souvenir. Thanks again, Lee! From the 'Red Nosed Ladies'

We took our 6 and 9 year olds to wild Florida it was a nice journey from idrive. It was great to see a bit of rural Florida. Seeing as we do not have a influx of gators in the UK it was maybe more exciting but a local lad was sat next to me on the air boat and... More

Fancy a day away from the mayhem of the theme parks then Wild Florida is a great alternative. Loads more to do than you would think looking at the website and the airboat ride is a fabulous way to get out and see some 'real' wildlife (if it wants you to) not to mention cool down on a hot Florida...

Unless you have not scene an alligator on a lake, I wonder why there are so many positive reviews. The hour long airboat ride was largely a airboat stop and go and stop ride. Most of the time we were stopped staring at a few birds or cows on the shore. The lake is a small circle that is filthy,... More

Hi Mark, Sorry to disappoint you. Sometimes our visitors don't like our pace of things and we understand that. Judging by your other reviews, there's no surprise that our attraction would bore you. Also, much of our experience is determined by the weather we can't control. As a resident you know there are certainly cooler times of the day to... More

We booked the one hour private tour based mainly on the advertised description that the longer ride went into forest. With the low water levels we just skirted the lake, so basically just got the half hour tour for twice as long. Our pilot was great, and tried really hard to make the best of the low water, but I...

Absolutely fantastic experience. We booked a 1 hour airboat ride (no reservation required). We had 1.5hrs to kill before the airboat so we took the opportunity to look around the wildlife park. We held an alligator, watched an extremely informative animal talk and explored the other exotic animals of the park. The airboat captain was extremely informative and we had... More

We had planned on Wild Florida taking half a day. Well we stayed the whole day. We started off with an airboat tour. This was the number 1 thing I wanted to do there. It wound up not even being our favorite part. It was fun, but come to find out airboat tours are an assault on all senses. I... More

We wanted to do something different this vacation that would provide lasting memories. Wild Florida certainly did that. It is well worth the drive and a visit. We had a private airboat tour which was fantastic - captain Jeff was great pointing out the wildlife on our way around the water with unspoilt views. We then had a number of... More

We went as a group of five with a 4 year old, we were very much looking forward to the air boat tour of the lake, but unfortunately this didn't start well as the boat driver didn't seat people in their groups but chose to allow them to sit wherever they wanted!
