The captain was great
Captain was entertaining and knew his stuff.
Ride was fun and our kids loved it!
Great experience for the kids. New Jersey Family.
Great guide on the tour. Everyone was very friendly great place
The captain was friendly and knowledgeable and the ride was fun but not scary.
Our guide Dave was great. Airboats are fun. The zoo was fun and loved the walkways and petting zoo part as well. Good value for price.
Captain Wayde was fantastic!! He took the time to answer all our questions and made sure that we all saw the alligators.
We loved the airboat ride! With all of the rain, we did not think the rude will be on, but the people did their best to keep all of us happy, and we were. THANK YOU!
Very nice experience. The lake has a lot of wildlife to see. The boat captain did a nice job of showing us the alligators while not harassing the birds.
We had a great time and our boat Captain Jeff was very nice.
We had a fantastic experience on the air boat. Captain Logan was friendly, knowledgeable, and engaging. We had 10 kids with us and they had the Adventure of a lifetime!
The day we scheduled got too windy to be safe. They offered refunds or rescheduling. We rescheduled, and had a wonderful time. Captain Jeff was informative and funny. The bat turn around a cow was exciting and hysterical!!!!
Knowledgeable friendly staff ,exciting for the kids plus good value
The setup was good and well planned. The airboat ride took you all over and was brilliant for all the family. The animals were abundant and we were given good insight to those that we saw. We got to see a few crocs in their natural habitat. Well worth a visit.
Staff is friendly the animal park is clean and animals seem cared for. Thought the alligator feet head for sale was distasteful.
Our tour guide was fantastic..the girls at the check in were incredible and all the staff in the park were very polite and accommodating
Smart staff, excellent tour.

Excellent customer service and the guide Wade answered all questions and found several gators
Super day out this lovely little park - we had a great 30 min airboat ride followed by a stroll around the lovely wildlife park. It was relaxing and a very enjoyable day out - definitely worth a visit.
Our captain was great. We saw two alligators. He told us facts about alligators and some personal stories.
My grandkids,their parents and my wife and I fully enjoyed the thrill of travelling on top of what appeared to be little water and thru the tall marsh grasses at good speed. We saw some gators and birds.
The sloth encounter was great! the young lady that was the guide for the sloth encounter was awesome! She answered all of our questions and more! The animal exhibits were clean and well kept and all of the animals they have look healthy and well cared for. The entire staff was VERY friendly and knowledgeable ....they really love their job and it shows. I would highly recommend the Sloth encounter and the 1/2 hour airboat ride. I would also get there right when they open at 9 am as the animals have been fed and they are quite active early. Plus there are buses that come in from Disney later in the day. Keep a lookout for the big white peacock and stop to talk to all of the parrots....most of them are pretty chatty! Great place! and great value!
The staff were very friendly, the food good value and tasty. The Ranch ride was very informative with a knowledgeable guide/driver and the half hour airboat ride was so good that all 4 of us said we wished we could have done the longer ride... maybe next time .!
Awesome day at wild Florida. I highly recommend this. The airboat ride was a blast. We got to see alligators and their nests. Lots of cool animal interactions at the park. Our kids loved it. My only complaint if I had to have one was that the petting pen wasn't open and when we asked if they would open it, the lady said she was too busy. Thankfully another guy behind the counter stepped in and opened it for us. Great value for the money. Worth the hour drive.
We enjoyed our airboat tour at Wild Florida and would recommend it to family and friends that are visiting the area. Our guide Captain Blake was vary informative and personable. The food from the Chop House was very flavorful ( I recommend the pulled chicken) . I did feel the chicken tender meals that my children ordered were a bit expensive but it filled them up and they didn't complain. The gift shop was very reasonable. We enjoyed the animal park and the hawk swap walk. The animal enclosures were nicely done and the animals did not seem stressed at all, much nicer than some zoos we have gone too. The gator feeding was fun to see and the presentation was exciting and informative. Especially nice to drive home to the kids why not to feed alligators and to stay away from pond / water edges while in vacation. Thank you Wild Florida for a fun filled day .
