Why every vacation to the Sunshine State should include a Florida Everglades airboat tour

We don’t call ourselves Wild Florida for no reason… Florida is the hot spot for tourists to have family fun and make lasting memories, and with us, we ensure it’s a WILD time, too. With white-sand beaches across the state and the most famous attractions, visitors spend weeks planning all the things to do in Orlando and deciding what works best for their family. While most families visit Florida for the theme parks, on this blog, we go over a few reasons why your vacation should include a Florida Everglades airboat tour

Explore and discover a different side of Wild Florida

While your wildest kids may love the thrill of going fast and being able to scream, others love to get out and explore the world (and, dare we say, learn a thing or two while they do it). An Everglades airboat tour offers the best of both worlds for kids, young and old, at Wild Florida. And the best part is that you don't have to travel all the way down to South Florida to experience it! Many don’t realize this, but the Florida Everglades start right here at Wild Florida on Lake Cypress. It boasts over 80 different species of Florida wildlife, so you might want to bring a backup battery or power charger to capture a photo of each and every animal you spot.

Have your family experience something new and fun... for all ages

One of the best things about a Florida Everglades airboat tour is that anyone can enjoy it, regardless of age. Airboat rides can be both soothing enough to calm down the crankiest toddler and offer enough excitement to keep your older kids entertained. During your airboat ride, our expert Wild Florida airboat master captains will tell you all about the wildlife, providing some little-known facts you can share with your friends and family back home. Just like the saying goes... you learn something new every day!

Get more bang for your buck with Wild Florida airboat rides

Let’s be honest. Each year, it seems as though the theme parks get more and more expensive. With rising admission costs, food prices, and added gift shop splurges, some families may feel stressed not being able to go "all out" during an Orlando vacation. Airboat rides are affordable, and we think it's important to highlight the extra activities your family will enjoy along with your ride at Wild Florida–the biggest perk being that you and your family can explore our Gator Park for FREE! No matter which guided tour you reserve, you'll be able to get up close to animals found around Central Florida and across the world. Plus, you can always enjoy the Exotic Animal and Gator Feeding shows that happen in the park, too!
