We had a brilliant time. Jeff, our captain was great and we saw loads of wide life.
We loved our day at Wild Florida, one of the best days of our holiday. We did the private VIP sloth experience as well as a private airboat tour. I would highly recommend both experiences! The kids and the adults were huge fans of both, and well worth the money for the unique experience. :)
Fun ride; beautiful scenery.
We arrived at the allotted time and were immediately checked in. Our group was slightly larger than what we had originally arranged due to a misunderstanding of the online reservation process (for a private boat tour, children are considered adults so be sure to register as such), but the staff was able to accommodate us with no issues. Our tour left on time and Captain Todd was an excellent guide! He pointed out species of interest, described the ecosystem, and some of the issues affecting the ecosystem. He gave us plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take photos. A few of the highlights of our tour were spotting a gorgeous bald eagle up close, a baby alligator nursery area, and one huge alligator resting in the sun. After our tour we were able to enjoy the park, including an entertaining and informative live animal demonstration. The park was perfect for the children, and though busy was nice change from the overcrowded amusement parks in Orlando. We were able to do the boat tour at 9:00, enjoy the park, and make it back to the airport in plenty of time for our late afternoon flight home. It was an excellent way to enjoy our last day in Florida!
The weather wasn't the best for seeing gators, but Captain Mike made sure we still found a few. He was great and knew alot. Our family had a lot of fun and also enjoyed the rest of the day at the park with all the shows and animals.
Private tour is great! We saw bald eagles, otters, alligators, cranes, as well as other wildlife. Tour driver was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions and then some!
We had an awesome time.
Very informative and Captain's take you for a fun ride.
The air boat guide, Marc really made our day! The animals are kept well and it’s beautiful. We will definitely return someday
Awesome time with Captain Alec. He took the time to teach us along the way! Highly recommend
Extremely family oriented. Staff was amazing. Best part is the airboat tours.
Jeff our guide was awesome. He was fun and knowledgeable. The experience was great and everything exceeded our expectations.
Great trip better than any of us expected. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Well worth the money.
Fantastic ride with Captain John! Beautiful flora and fauna. The Nature Parkwas an unexpected great treat.
Animals are very well taken care of!
The best day we have had in florida, awesome private airboat ride, gators and Eagles.
We really enjoyed our private air boat tour with Farmer. It was so fun, we saw alligators and the area was so pretty. We will defiantly recommend this to our friends. We also enjoyed feeding the alligators, and seeing all of the animals. I would request that your grill add a gluten free item or a salad for people that don't eat fried food or bread. The menu was limited for us. Otherwise, it was a great afternoon with family visiting.
So glad we did a private tour...our guide, Logan, answered all our questions and really gave us an incredible experience on the water. Saw lots of gator babies and even a few adolescents. Beautiful scenery and fun ride!!!
My wife and I loved this private airboat ride. This was our first time and won't be our last. We were the first boat of the day so that may have played a part in how much wildlife we saw. We almost ran over the first alligator because it was in an area where they usually don't see gators. From there we saw 4 more gators though most disappeared under water before getting a good look at them. One gator that we were very close to actually surfaced a few times so we got a good look. The baby gators were awesome and we were right up to them. The birds were abundant and varied and we got some awesome photos and videos of them. Our captain, Marc, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and an easy going kind of guy that we really liked. Oh yeah, we also got a look at an otter from a distance that we were told was very rare because they are good at avoiding the boats.
The private sloth encounter and the private air boat adventure was a great time!! Seeing many of the other animals was informative and interesting. We did wish that things were less about profit and more about the animals, but overall the staff was very friendly! Probably should not use plastic bags at an animal encounter. We would highly recommend.
Really worthwhile having smaller group , felt we were able to go up smaller creeks with the smaller airboat , guide awesomme , saw alligators big ones in the wild , and bald eagle flying around , def do again next time local . V pleased see how the “nasty” alligators were treated with understanding g and expert training in the attached park.
An employee, Landon is awesome interpreter for 6 deaf ladies. We wanted to thanks for having him with us at Airboat and shows.
Great tour! Todd our captain was amazing and we saw gators, birds, eagles, turtles and just lots of wildlife. The park itself is also really good!
Fantastic tour and our guide, mark , is an asset to the company . Fantastic man , fantastic tour .
Great scenery great tourguide
had a fantastic day, we booked the private boat tour with captain Falmer and he was brilliant, we last visited wild Florida 5 years ago from the UK and loved it then and we always said we would come back when next over and we are SO glad we did. 10 out of 10
Brilliant ride on the airboat. The guide (captain John) found loads of wildlife and was really knowledgeable. Had a great time and would definitely recommend this to anyone
Excellent trip really enjoyed the experience with Captain Logan
One of the best hours you can enjoy, a great experience.
On arrival for the tour we were offered the option to pay extra for a private airboat tour. We took it, the best decision we made all day. Our guide was interesting, funny, informative and took us to see what we wanted to see whilst showing us areas of interest along the way. Unfortunately it was a hot day so only saw two female alligators guarding their nests but our guide was so good that this didn't matter due to the other information / areas we were taken too. Well worth the money and would certainly return again - very very good hour of our time!! Would strongly recommend these airtours.
Our Guide Capt.John was amazing he made the tour so much more than he had too. We enjoyed every minute of our hour tour it went by so fast .
Jeff was a great tour guide. He made us feel special. He had tremendous knowledge of the area and took us to special places.
Amazing nature view & great experience...
Captain Dennis made the boat trip fantastic and we would highly recommend him to everyone. The park itself has something for everyone, from the most docile huge slifator through to some fantastic birds in the aviary that just want to be your friends. Well worth the trip.
We had an absolutely amazing time on the private airboat tour. We got to see areas that only the smaller airboats can go to. Our guide Jeff was brilliant and spotted all the wildlife for us before we could see it. Can’t recommend a private with Jeff enough. Worth every single dollar. Thank you so much
Great fun ride. Knowledgeable Captain who made sure we got the most out of it
Great tour. Operator was very friendly and knowledgeable. Will recommend to friends.
Everyone at Wild Florida is great! Had Dennis as our personal airboat guide for the second year in a row and he was Awesome once again!! One of our favorite things to do while in Florida - great staff and amazing encounters with wildlife!!
Highly recommend the 1 hour private air boat ride and walk around the nature area viewing the animals, very enjoyable and educational air boat trip by Captain Farmer.
My husband and i brought our God Daughter for a fun day at Wild Florida. We had reserved out time slot for the air boat ride the day before...well some how our time got changed and they did not have an opening at our time and we could not stay later for a different time. They were so apologetic and offered several options for us. Their manager became involved and offered to take us out himself right then...couldn't ask for more than that. We ended up having a great time!
We had perfect weather - sunny and hot. Our pilot took us on a great tour. He knew where to find the wildlife, and was very knowledgeable about both the alligators and the birds we saw (and we saw lots of both). We also saw a large turtle swimming through the water at one point. We stopped for several minutes to watch a large alligator that had been swimming up a river. The gator submerged when the boat got close, but our pilot cut the engines and we were able to watch the gator up close, as well as several birds, while enjoying the quiet of the marsh. It was a full hour's worth on the water. All of us enjoyed the tour very much. We also enjoyed the wildlife park at Wild Florida, which we visited after our airboat tour. It was one of the most memorable days we had in the Orlando area.
The service was prompt, the activities as advertised and our private boat tour was even better than we expected. Jeff did a great job as our guide and showed us many amazing wildlife.
