We very much enjoyed our visit to Wild Florida. The exhibits for the animals were great. The staff was very informative and the airboat ride at sunset was great! Thank you very much for the extra help with my old parents. They enjoyed the visit very much.
we had a excellent on the 1 hour night airboat tour with captain farmer not only we did this airboat tour there we also did many day tours there as well we will be back next year.i would recomend all the tours they do it is a excellent way to see the wild side of florida many thanks to all
I absolutely loved our tour guide. He was so personable and it was obvious he knew the area. If I would’ve had cash on me, he would’ve received a nice tip from me. What I didn’t know when I booked our tour is that it was hunting Season for gators, so we didn’t find any big ones out there. Perhaps you shouldn’t book tours during hunting season. If we would’ve seen a large gator that would’ve really made our day! Also, I would suggest either having people bring their own safety goggles or provide them. When we were boating at night, the bugs kept getting in our eyes and not only was it not comfortable, it made it harder for us to see, which kind of defeats the purpose of the whole trip.
The boat Captain, Jeff was brilliant and made the airboat ride very memorable.
That was the best ride ever. The Captain Alec was great.
Loved our tour!! Definately recommend going to the night tour it was beautiful, Thank you for doing a great job we will be back nect time we are in FLorida!!
The captain was very knowledgeable and made the tour real great
The park was full of awesome creatures and there were so many experiences to have... from feeding a tortoise or alligator to educational shows!!! Not to mention the fantastic staff!! Every staff member we encountered was pleasant, helpful and informative!!! We had an especially great time with Captain Dennis on our night sirboat tour!!! He has a vast knowledge of so many animals and the Everglades! He is super funny and made our trip incredible!! He is a definite rockstar and I would highly recommend going out on tour with him!! Wild Florida was a definite highlight to our Disney/Universal family vacation!! We are so happy we did it!! See you next time we are in Florida!!!
Very good tour. Very friendly and knowledgeable operator who made sure we saw as much wild life as possible and enjoyed the trip. Highly recommend
The staff was curtious and made our airboat ride interesting for the whole group. We saw a lot on our night tour.
Capt'n Jeff found us some gators under very tough circumstances and gave us a very cool tour even if we hadn't come across any gators at all...we had a great time once again at Wild Florida! The staff was very helpful before the trip as well taking care of an issue we had with the ticket company we had gone through to purchase the tickets even when that party was of no help!
this was excellent we will book this again for next year when we get back our guide john was excellent
Our Captain was great. Very informative and helped us locate a ton of gators. We are hoping he had had as much luck when it was hunting time.
Great Fun. Awesome Guide
The night Airboat ride was amazing! Captain Mark was very informative, knowledgeable, funny and all around great guy. We seen many different birds including bald eagles, baby alligators, teenage gators and even a few 7-8 footers. Also he showed us a nest with the mama gator watching over it. 5 stars for our ride and captain Mark!
Our tour guide Mike was very nice and made the trip very fun. We got to see gators!! Even if we didn't see the alligators it was still worth it!! Would definitely go back. Thanks!!
Great ride, captain was very knowledgeable and had a great personality. Very interesting and relaxing actually! Thanks for the great entertainment.
Had a great time...more fun than I've had in a long time! Saw a alligators- babies & an adult. Can't believe there are more than 800 alligators in that lake!!! The acceleration of the boat was so exciting and seeing all the different birds - great blue heron, egrets, and all! Such a great time. Next time I'm in Florida, I'll come do it again!!!
Our guide, Logan, was very nice, funny, informative and professional. The sunset ride was perfect for experiencing both daylight and night time activity. Our guide was available and on time, called when expected and the whole thing went very smoothly. One thing that could have made it better would be to have a restroom available after hours. Thank you!
The ride was everything it said on the tin! We took the 6pm trip which started off with a fantastic sunset,on the way round the lake as darkness fell and the moon came out shimmering over the lake. We saw three feisty mother alligators and their broods up close and personal at various points and bird life and other wildlife. Capt Wade was very personable and knowledgeable and all in all it was a fabulous one hour trip and Florida highlight for the four of us and wouldn't hesitate to do again.Very good value.
Guide was fantastic, and the whole experience was one we will never forget!
