"fun day"
October, 2017
day was overcast, but that did not slow down our fun day. Animals, most were very well kept. white tale deer could use a little help.The food was very good and a good price. The air boat ride is not required, but we went for it, and very glad we did. Mark was our captain/tour guide. Great time. Would HIGHLY recommend.

"Family vacation 2015"
April, 2015
We really enjoyed our time in Florida. The airboat ride at Wild Florida was exceptional. Our boat Captain ( John ) was very knowledgeable of the area where he took us. We seen many gators and other animals that are indigenous to the area. There were three groups in our family and we all made reservations at separate times. Wild Florida was very accommodating in getting our groups together so we could ride in one boat. After the airboat ride we walked through the animal park. We had the pleasure to see feeding 10+ foot alligators and many of the different animals they have on display. Would do it again in the future.

Tip: Take the early boat ride. More gators and animals moving about. Don't be in a hurry. Take your time, relax and have fun. Just as it should be when vacationing.

"Awesome Airboat ride."

We had a great ride for our group of 15. Our Capt. Was very good and knew where to look for Gators. The Zoo was also pretty neat, my 2 year old nephew got to hug and hold a 2 foot Gator.

"Awesome ride"

We went on a tour at about 11:30, Logan was our guide, he was good, showed us a lot of gaderes from 1 foot long to maybe 10 feet and birds. There was a group of about 5 or 6 little ones , Logan said they would still be with their mother and that she was most likely watching us. He did tell us that if we seen something he would stop but when I pointed out a turtle, he just said there are lots of them. I know they are on a tight schedule. I wasn't a big deal, I did see 2 turtles sitting on top of the dead cat tails. I do highly recommend taking this tour and book the one hour if you have time, not saying you won't see gaders on the half hour but the one hour gives you a ride all around the outside of the lake in the weeds and cat tails. I would do it again even just for the boat ride. Well worth it.

Wild Florida was well worth the trip from Orlando.It was a nice drive through the country to get there. Upon arrival we were pleasantly surprised at the sheer size of the wildlife park and the number of exhibits + animals.We also took the 30 min airboat tour.- the captain gave us some extra time as we stopped for a peek at a very large wild gator. Great fun for the whole family. Highly recommend..
