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

Just 45-minutes south of Orlando is the Wild Florida Airboats and Wildlife Park in Kenanville, the self-proclaimed “middle of nowhere” destination featuring airboat tours, ranch buggy tours, a wildlife park, restaurant and more.

Enjoy Florida’s natural beauty with a 30-minute or 1-hour airboat ride. Hop on board a U.S. Coast Guard-certified airboat and skim the shoreline or head deep into the 4,200 acres of protected swamps, marshes and rivers of the Central Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of alligators, eagles, turkeys, wild boars, wading birds (known as roseate spoonbills) and other native creatures. A life jacket and ear protection are provided for each guest.

Back at the Wildlife Park, take a leisurely stroll and get up close with more than 200 different animals. Check out the lemurs, sloths, zebras, watusi cattle, bobcats and other animals native to South America, Africa and Australia. Kids will love the covered playground as well as feeding and learning more about baby animals in the Petting Zoo.

Of course, a trip to the Wild Florida Airboats and Wildlife Park would not be complete without a hug from an alligator. Experience the wild side of Florida and hold one of the park’s gators during the popular Gator Handling Show.

Upgrade to the half-day package to include a delicious barbeque lunch at the Chomp House Grill (featuring pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken plus a side dish, bread and drink), an alligator souvenir and commemorative photo holding a live alligator.

I was impressed with the extensive zoo they had on the property. Also prices for souvenir photos were reasonable. Great ride throught the everglades. We saw quite a few wild live species in their natural habitat. Including bald eagles.

October is the time to go! No big crowds and lots of personal attention. The food at the cafe was fresh and we'll prepared. If you have kids, I highly recommend the 1/2 day package.

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.
