"Great Experience"
February, 2018
We had never been on an airboat before. It was a great experience. Our guide was terrific. He got us up close to a number of alligator 's as we made way through the water. We most certainly would come back here for another ride!

"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.

We had a great ride! On the ride we saw a couple of gators and a lot of birds. Captain Todd was great and provided some great educational information!! The second photo shows one of the gators we saw, forgot to zoom when I took it though.

"Great airboat experience and interactive animal experiences."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We had a half hour airboat your booked- it went so fast because we were having so much fun. I thought my 5 & 8 year olds would get bored but they loved it and an hour would’ve been fine. Jeff the captain was very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw lots of alligators and baby ones too, also a vulture. It’s such a lovely place- you can’t see any signs of humans there so you feel out in the wild. The zoo was less a large UK style zoo, but it was fabulous. There were birds in an Avery that were flying around and you could feed, goats you could feed and touch, a baby alligator you could hold, most of the other animals were in cages / fields and weren’t able to be touched but still nice to see. The animals looked well looked after. There were also interactive shows. Unfortunately we weren’t able to attend any because we were unaware of the times of them and wasn’t told them when we booked, so missed out. They looked great tho- alligator feeding etc! Our original boat tour was cancelled because of the stormy weather- we got an email and it was only by pure chance I checked my email before I left and found it had been cancelled. We were able to rearrange but at their convenience, not ours, but still it meant we didn’t lose our money. The drive was quite long but our sat nav took us the wrong way- half an hour in the opposite direction! Wasn’t Wild Florida’s fault though. Overall a fab activity to do for an afternoon. Gift shop was quite expensive, and the photos were too! $48 for a memory stick with your photos on it- about 6 decent pics to be honest only.

"So disappointed!"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed June 12, 2018 NEW
We visited last week and I really thought this was going to be one of the highlights of our holiday. Firstly, I completely understand that with trips involving wild life it can be pot luck as to what you will experience. So, when I was allotted a time of 12:45 for our boat trip I questioned the lady as to whether this would be a good time to see gators as it was the hottest part of the day. I was told, 'Yes, you will see lots of gators at all times of the day' so I went ahead and booked. However, the first thing we were told when we boarded was that we wouldn't see many gators at this time of day as it was so hot! I had been really looking forward to our boat ride and seeing gators in their natural habitat but we didn't see any. When we got on the boat all of the rows were taken, with only single seats left. We are a family of four, two adults and two children, 11 and 5. I had to insist on at least being able to sit with my 5 year old and was told I could squeeze onto the end of a row with her.....in the midday heat....for an hour. My husband and 11 year old had to sit at the back of the boat, on opposite sides to each other. Not quite the family experience I had planned. The gator park was great and an absolute bargain if you just pay for entry. The staff were very knowledgeable about the animals and there are lots of opportunities for interaction. I loved seeing the gators being fed and saw my first ever zdonk and zorse!

"Brilliant airboat ride again!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 11, 2018 NEW
Visited Florida Wild airboat rides again after 6yrs with family of 8 including a small 2yr old and 4.5yr old. Again was not disappointed and we all enjoyed it very much. We opted for an hr ride again which seem to go very quickly while looking at the amazing scenery, waters and wildlife. We saw many aligators of all sizes and the captain Tod was brilliant and full of knowledge. We have been on a few different air boat rides but this is the best by far. I highly recommend this tour over all the others.
