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.
Great family experience. Capt. Alec was informative and a super guide. We would do it again.
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.
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.
It was well worth the money. Park was nice too. Food was will good. Would do this again for sure.
The boat tour was wonderful! Saw lots of wildlife - alligators, eagles, marsh birds. Guide was very informative. Lots of things to see in the animal park.
The airboat experience, has been told to all our family and friends.
It was the most fun my husband and I had experience this year on vacation, for tour type events.
Thanks for the fun
Great guide-full of interesting info. Package deal including the animal park and lunch was a very good deal. Very enjoyable experience for the $$.
This place/tour was AMAZING!! Alec was an awesome guide!! The garlic bread was the most delicious!
Even though it was cold out that day, we really enjoyed our trip. Can't remember our tour guides name but he was great. We upgraded to a private tour when we arrived and it was easy and perfect!!
We had a wonderful time at wild Florida. The captain was very friendly and informative. The airboat ride was amazing. We spotted a couple of alligators and had the opportunity to hold a baby alligator and a python. Overall we highly recommend this experience.
The boat ride is nice, it's a must do when in Florida. The tour guide was quite disappointing, he wasn't very nice and kind of ignored my family because we were the only foreigners in the boat.
The park is fun, they have a lot of animals.
The lunch was OK, a little expensive for a burger and a drink. You can pay for the boat ride and the park only and you will save a lot of money.
This was certainly much more than just an airboat tour and alligator encounter. Very friendly staff and so much to see and experience. The only negative was no driving instructions from Orlando and when you Goggled we were given instructions to take a certain exit from the Turnpike but had no E Tag and the sign said we would be fined $100. Then had to go an extra 7 miles down and turn back and try and find an alternate road. Very stressful which made us late but luckily the staff rebooked us for a later tour.
Our captain of our "airboat" John, had us doing turns and ducking and weaving through the swamp that were a real thrill!!His knowledge was extensive and informative, and he has such a good eye in pointing out sights.We encountered a smallish alligator just floating along and looking at us in a very lazy way!!! We really liked the animals in the park and apart from holding the alligator for a photo shoot, we met the nicest girls at the entrance to the petting area. Highlight for me was being able to hold their little teacup pig. A great way to spend a day, and the lunch provided was delicious.
The airboat was great fun. It was a very smooth ride and I love how quickly it can turn. We saw an alligator but for me the highlight was seeing bald eagles in the wild.
With us still being on California time we were hungry for lunch at 11:30am. The BBQ chicken was still cooking and not ready, which was a bit disappointing, but we had other menu options instead.
It's a great setup at Wild Florida. Note that it is about an hour from Orlando, which for us was a $60 ride with Uber each way.
The lunch wasn't that great, the animal zoo was OK. The airboat ride was fantastic. The guide on the boat was great. It looks like they're making some updates to the zoo so that may be better next year
