Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

Alligators everywhere! Bring a camera with a high shutter speed, as the alligators pop in and out of the water quickly and you don't want to miss them! Binoculars may also come in handy, especially if you want to spot more wildlife and birds.

What You Can Expect

Florida Everglades Airboat Tour and Alligator Encounter with Optional Lunch

Florida Everglades Airboat Tour and Alligator Encounter with Lunch

Step away from the hustle and bustle of the city to visit, Kenansville, an hour drive outside Orlando, where you can enjoy Florida’s natural beauty. Your day begins with a 30-minute or 1-hour or airboat tour deep into the 4,200 acres (1,699 hectares) of protected swamps, marshes and rivers that make up the Central Florida Everglades. Your US Coast Guard captain will give you an in-depth look at the gators, birds, eagles, trees and plants that make up these beautiful wetlands. Experience an untouched part of Florida and soak in the quiet, picturesque atmosphere, where you won’t see any city development or homes.

After your airboat ride, watch a live alligator demonstration. During instructional and hands-on experience, you'll learn about the anatomy of the American alligator and its habits, as well as the types of dangers associated with this animal. You'll also have an opportunity to hold or touch the gator and take a picture with it (photo included with half-day package)!

You'll then have time to explore the 13 acre (5.26 hectares) park on your own and visit the wildlife exhibits, where you can see a zebra, a white-tailed deer, Watusi cattle, alligators and tortoises, as well as the tropical bird aviary. Before leaving, make sure to stroll along the 500-foot (124-meter) sightseeing dock for amazing views of the park.

Upgrade to the half-day package to include a delicious BBQ lunch at the park, which includes your choice of meat (pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken) a side dish, bread and a drink -- a true Florida barbecue! You'll also receive a free alligator souvenir and a 6x8 photo to commemorate your experience!

Everything about this tour was wonderful. We only saw three alligators in the wild but the day was extremely hot. The airboat ride was amazing. Saw lots of birds.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

It was amazing!!!! All the staff were pleasant. The wild park had many beautiful animals. The air boat trip gave us a chance to see many birds but the alligators were hiding due to how hot it was. Nonetheless, we saw and fed plenty of alligators in the wild park.

Trotz des Regens war es ein super Ausflug. Wie hatten ein Airboat und einen Guide für uns alleine, der uns die Flora und Fauna gut erklärte. Der Park ist ebenso interessant und spannend. Neben ein Aligator kann man auch Schlangen und andere Tiere anfassen und beobachten.
