Exploring Wild Florida: A Guide on the Best Place to See Alligators!

Posted by Sam Haught on February 21,2023 05:24:PM

We want all our guests to experience the REAL Florida! And what better place to see alligators than here at Wild Florida? We offer exciting ways to explore the state's natural beauty by foot, by airboat, or by car. And for our reptile fans out there, you can view alligators in their natural habitat and through interactive ways when you visit us. Explore our different adventures below and how close you can get to the Florida alligator during your next visit. 

Come face-to-face with a gator during an animal encounter

Some of the coolest reptiles you’ll ever meet call Wild Florida “home.” With our VIP Reptile Encounter, you’ll meet rare albino gators, snap photos with our spokesgator, Fluffy, and hang out with one of the biggest gators in Florida, Crusher! This encounter continues with a trip through our Snake House, where you come face-to-face with native venomous snakes. After that, you’ll end your experience by feeding some of the gators inside our Gator Park. Afterward, you can walk around and explore our Gator Park. Once inside, you can look at gators from a distance at our Gator Pond. If you build up the courage, you can feed the alligators’ favorite snack… gator nuggets!

See gators in our Drive-thru Safari Park

If your family is short on time and wants to escape the heat, you all can observe wild animals up close and personal from the comfort and safety of your own car! Our Drive-thru Safari Park is home to over 200 species of animals, including alligators, zebras, giraffes, and more. Inside, our gators love to bask in the sun, so be sure to say “hi” as you drive by! You and your family can drive and explore the wonders of nature within our Drive-thru Safari Park and then continue your adventure at our Gator Park by attending our Crusher Show or watching our Gator Feeding Show.

Spot gators in their natural habitat during an Airboat Tour

Have your hair blowing in the wind while racing through the waters! Our airboat tours are a thrilling experience that take you into the headwaters of the Florida Everglades, where you can observe alligators in their natural habitat. During your airboat ride, you'll get close to alligators, as well as other wildlife such as birds, turtles, and even a few snakes. Our airboat captains are full of knowledge about alligators and the Everglades, and our airboats will give you an experience like no other.

Whether you're looking for something hands-on or just places to see alligators in the wild, we’ll make sure your next adventure gets you up close to alligators. Adventure has no limit at our adventure park where you can ride, walk, or drive with gators all in one place! The best part of it all is that included with your purchase of an airboat tour, Drive-thru Safari Park ticket, or an animal encounter is admission to the Gator Park, where the alligator fun doesn’t stop.
