Awesome airboat ride and animal park. We saw lots of beautiful birds, wildlife, and alligators on the boat. Definitely do the one hour tour. Our tour guide from the bus was great and helpful. He told us a lot of interesting facts about the area on the way there. Hotel pick up was awesome! Our air boat operator was great too. The shows were great and everyone had a great time.

This was a scam. We bought tickets for airboat ride through WILD Florida ($70 for 2 tickets) and then saw it was at same place we had already visited so then we found this 3 hour tour ($200 for 2 tickets) so we cancelled and rebooked for this Central Florida everglades tour. We were to arrive at 830am, which we did. Fortunately we followed the bus to the destination. When we arrived at CENTRAL FLORIDA EVERGLADES.....it was actually WILD FLORIDA in which we had cancelled our much cheaper tickets then we were told our 830am tour wouldnt begin until 12:45PM. We had other things scheduled as we thought 3 hours our we would be done by 1130am. Viator/WILD FLORIDA refused refund. TOTAL SCAM!

This was an awesome ride! The boat was just super fun and we got to see a few Gators and some birds out there. Just a fyi you have to or advised to wear the ear muffs as it's noisy without! I highly recommend this tour. We did the hour tour and it was great. Not much else at the park but all in all great morning . Special thanks to Preston our greyline driver. He was really friendly, chatty and guided us really well! Thanks again 😊😊

We were only in town for three days and this was on our itinerary for the last day. Our trip was cancelled on the day before our scheduled airboat ride.

Saw alligators, amazing birds. Great boat ride. Even in the rain! But dress warmly. The wind can be fierce.
Fun Experience with a great driver.

Taking an air boat ride has been on my bucket list for years. My boys and I decided to make it happen at Wild Florida. The ride was amazing, the park was fun. The boys even got to pet and feed capybaras. Our tour drive Bob made the trip! He was the icing on the cake for this trip. Sign up for this trip and if you get Bob as your driver you are in for a treat!!
Great Airboat AND Wildlife park tour

Nice experience!

It was a very good experience for myself and my family. It was kinda cold that day and because of the weather we didn’t expect to see any alligators. However, we did end up seeing three in all. Our airboat captain was very knowledgeable.
Fun filled Sunday

Didn't get to go due to the boat being broken. Still waiting on our refund....Also had to uber to pick up location so that was a waste
Diana_G, Oct 2021
We were really looking forward to the Everglades Tour but I received notification one day before that it was cancelled with no reason given. We were really looking forward to it. We could not reschedule because our days were limited. Very disappointed.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Good morning Diana_G, Unfortunately it was because the radar showed terrible weather for the following day…. The rain didn’t end up hitting the airboat area until 11am, however the forecast had it for the morning time. Sadly Mother Nature is something we cannot control and it has to be safety first. It should have been noted on the cancellation in the system for you to see. Hopefully we can see you again in the future and the rain from this week will stay away more! Tori
Good day overall - something different
Karen_B, Aug 2021
Once we got to Wild Florida our Grayline tourguide was helpful and informative. We had to wait 30 minutes later than originally thought to board the airboat which broke up the morning a bit. Saw one gator on the opposite side of the boat but the boat was cool. Glad we did it, don’t know if I’d do it again. Be sure to confirm bus meeting time and location in advance. Our meeting time posted was 8:30, after calling to confirm, I was told 8:10 and the driver was still early to the mtg point and called to make sure we were coming. Probably just a courtesy call but had we planned to arrive at the listed time, we would not have been ready.
Perfect day!
