While they may not rank the highest on being the most friendly or cuddliest animals, alligators are certainly one of the most fascinating, dare we say... coolest animals out there. From the power behind their jaws and the agility these animals showcase in the water, it's no surprise why tourists and locals alike are so drawn to learn more about them. Everglades airboat rides are certainly one of the coolest ways to view alligators, but, it's not your only option. You'll find our Gator Pond in the heart of our Gator and Wildlife Park (what some may call an alligator park) full of over 100.
For seven years, our team at Wild Florida has made unforgettable adventures through airboat rides, #slothies, and more, all while promoting a connection with animals and conserving the natural, real side of Florida. To celebrate our success and continue sharing the beauty of Florida, we've decided to offer everyone free admission to our Gator and Wildlife Park from now through the end of 2017. But, if you're making the trip out to Wild Florida to meet our wild family, you might as well make the most of your trip, right? After you and your family spend a few hours hanging out with our animals.
Orlando is known for being home to world class attractions, but when you look past all the magic and characters, you'll start to see the real, wild side of Florida. During an airboat ride in Orlando, you'll have the chance to get up close and see Florida's natural plant and wildlife. With more than 350 different species of wildlife calling the Sunshine State home, you'll see new and exciting animals each time you ride, so it's never the same experience. Curious to see what all the airboat hype is about? Here's what our visitors had to say about their experience during their airboat ride in.
With Florida's population growing year after year, humans and alligators are running into each other more frequently. Because of these meet-ups (whether they're intentional or not), the state of Florida has created laws on how humans should handle, approach, and interact with alligators. In this blog, we go over three Florida alligator laws every Floridan should know.
