Captain Mark was an awesome tour guide!!
We got rained out. Did enjoy the wildlife and holding the gator
It was a lot of fun. John had good info to share and we could tell he loved his lake and the habitat.
My family and I had a great time! The staff was very nice and the facility was well kept and clean! The airboat tour was great! Thanks!
The airboat tour was fantastic. We saw lots of wildlife, especially birds. The captain was knowledgeable and friendly. It was an excellent 1/2 day away from the Disney parks. The wildlife park is good and well worth a visit after the airboat ride. The Aligator feeding time is exceptional. A real 'must do' if you're visiting Florida.
It was fantastic!! Capt Mark was great, seemed very knowledgeable and very entertaining!! Highly Recommended!!!
Our guide was excellent Dennis was his name didn't realise you had a separate section too
Capt George was great. We had good conversation. I felt he was attentive and knowledgeable about what was going on. Loved his humor! Was hoping to see an alligator, but didn't. Even so I appreciated him as a guide. I also want to just say that I enjoyed the park. The animals looked well cared for and there was a nice variety for the size of your facility. Keep up the good work! ~ Wanda
It was an awesome rime & our guide was great!!
Ride was pleasant but not as informative as the last time we were there. More stops and information would be appreciated, about 50/50 vs. 90/10 ride vs talking/information.
We had a wonderful time! Our Captain Alec was very good and we were able to see multiple gators. The airboat ride did not bother my neck (for those with neck injuries). The nature park was fun and the kids had a blast handling the exotic critters. Thanks for a great experience!
The airboat tour was great and our guide was very friendly and informed. If you are going in the summer, I would suggest going early. Even booking the first morning tour, we were HOT so I can only imagine going late in the day. The wildlife park was fun and the animal demonstration was neat. The only reason I gave a somewhat satisfied rating is because they really try to get you financially in the photo department. It was explained during the gator demonstration that they ask you do not take pictures because they are trying to raise money for the gators. Fine and totally understandable, except that the photos are very pricey to purchase. We bought the cheapest option for the memory and I didn't mind our money going towards the care of the gators. However, later on when my daughter was participating in the sloth encounter, I wasn't allowed in to take pictures, the gate in front made it very difficult to get a shot on my DSLR, and the keeper kept telling me not to worry because she had pictures. A copy of the digital files would be $50 taken on the little point and shoot, while I stood there useless with my good camera. WIth the alligators they made it feel like you were contributing to their care, but after we paid for the sloth encounter it was the same photo price. I made do with my phone's camera which had to be precariously positioned, but had I been aware of this, I could have paid to do the encounter also. I feel like they should be more upfront with the photo policy and pricing, but otherwise it was a great experience.
Experience was outstanding, having been on other airboat tours this was by far the best. Our guide, Kirk,, was excellent, taking time to point out wild life other than alligators, explaining the reason they drain the lakes in Spring before hurricane season, and other interesting facts. The animals and birds in the zoo area were worth the price alone. We plan to return and will recommend this attraction to others.
My husband and I enjoyed our 1 hour airboat ride and walk around the park. Guide on boat very informative and provided us with earphones due to the loudness of the engine. We would have liked to have seen some alligators but we were shown we they nest. Also found the information about the lotus flowers interesting and we were able to taste the peanut like seeds and see how lotus tea is made. The airboat was unbelievably so very smooth and relaxing. Great way to get around the everglades! After the airboat ride we had a very nice lunch at the grill. Best barbeque chicken sandwich I've ever eaten. We then walked around the grounds checking out all the alligators and various variety of wildlife. Highlight was the alligator show where we all could touch the little animals such as a hedgehog, snakes and hold an alligator ! Would have liked to have seen our pictures taken of us on the airboat and holding the alligator but the photographer didn't do a good job of providing us with how to obtain the pictures and we were unable contact her as she was busy taking more pictures and staff didn't know what to do. Otherwise we had a great time exploring the wildlife portion of our trip to your park. Thank-you for a wonderful experience!
Had a very fun time
Marc was an excellent captain and all associates were friendly and most helpful.
We came all the way from Denmark, and normally people tells us to go to the Eerglades but staying in Orlando mde it much more easy and we had a great tour and tour guide.
hi. we had a great time and would choose very satisfied but it was an extremely hot day and we only saw two gators in the water and could not walk around the entire animal park to see all the animals. we were happy to see a lot of different birds up close. Next time, we will try to visit at a different time of the year.
The staff was great. We had a large party arriving in multiple cars and they held the boat till my last car of boat riders arrived.
Good value package, the park is very modern , the airboat ride was very good , covered quite a distance and even though it was middle of the day our captain found some wildlife for us .
Capt was very knowledgeable about the area and tried hard to spot alligators and have Q and A secions
the price was very fitting for a 1 hour airboat tour and walk through the park. Believe it was a great price for visitors and was not overpriced attractions around Orlando. Tour guide was excellent and informative and very friendly! Accommodations for the children were available for the boat ride and the experience overall was great!! would recommend this to anyone visiting Florida and would definitely do this again!!
We had a great time. Very cool to ride on the boat, Capt Kirk did a great job finding the gators and other wild life. Got some great pictures.
Driver was excellent, made ride fun and entertaining, found a lot of gators including babies. Very knowledgeable and professional.
Thoroughly enjoyed my walk around the farm/mini zoo. The airboat driver (Dennis) was great and was very pleasant to chat to. Didn't see too much of the gators on the airboat trip (not too surprising with the airboat scaring them off) but this didn't reduce my enjoyment. Overall a nice escape from the usual tourist attractions.
We had an awesome time on our airboat tour! Our guide was well informed about Florida history, and the wildlife we were seeing. He was informative and amusing. We also enjoyed strolling through the park and visiting the animals living there at Wild Florida. We had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
Everything was great including the food. I did think the food could have been just a little less expensive
The boat tour was great fun! The guide was interesting and the area was beautiful!! Afterwards the walk through the wildlife park was great and the photos with Fluffy are not to be missed. One of the best parts of our visit to Florida was going to Wild Florida!!
We loved the ride and enjoyed the information with the boat Captain Mark too !!
We had a great time!! The airboat was great. The park was beautiful and the employees were very friendly and helpful.
To start with the boat ride was very enjoyable and enlightening. We enjoy talking with Capt. Dennis after our ride. the animal show was informative. All in all it was a great morning.
The birds and animals were really great and loved the airboat ride. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that on my past experience of airboat rides in Flo they have always been really informative and that was not the case here .... it really was just a ride.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. The park was very well maintained. The experience was what we had envisioned.
Great ride, nice facility & people. Got to see alligators, although you might want to go earlier to see more.
Informative guide. Beautiful place. Boys (11 and 8) absolutely loved it.
Great value for the money when you consider it includes a fun boat ride as well as a stroll through an interactive animal exhibit. Plus the barbeque food was probably among the best I've ever eaten.
Captain Alec made sure we got to see lots of alligators and he was very informative about the wildlife in the area. The kids were very excited when our boat broke down and we had to be rescued!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our time on the airboats however we saw very few of the aligators while we were out on the water which I know is not your fault. We were not allowed to use your meeting facility to cool down as you had a party of school children there at the time. We had a four year old with us who would have appreciated some time to be in this room, even for a few minutes and so would I at my age however we were told that we could not go into this room.
My granddaughter and I while visiting Orlando area reviewed four different airboat locations to determine which one best suited our wishes. Wild Florida offered a very well prices one hour tour and the added wildlife park was a hit. After taking the airboat tour and spending quite a bit of time roaming around the wiidlife park area we were both impressed with the entire layout. The tour was awesome. The wildlife park was very well kept, in good repair and the animals seemed very healthy and well taken care of. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. Thank you Wild Florida!
