Why airboat rides in Florida will be the best thing you do all summer

Pop question: Have you ever gone on an airboat ride in the headwaters of the Florida Everglades? If not, now is the best time to try it out! With an airboat tour, you'll have the chance to see more than 350 species of wildlife native to the Sunshine State. Here are four reasons why airboat rides in Florida will be the best summer experience you’ve ever had!!

An attraction that is fun for all ages 

One of the best things about airboat rides in Florida is that anyone can enjoy them, no matter what age. Airboat rides are fun and easily accessible, seem to be soothing enough to calm down the crankiest toddler, yet provide enough excitement to keep your older kids entertained. 

During your airboat ride, our airboat Master captains will educate you all about the wildlife as they navigate swamps, marshes, and rivers, providing some little-known facts you'll be able to share with your friends and family next time you see them. Just like the saying goes... you learn something new every day!

Experience a new Everglades adventure, in a safe way

While we love having fun, safety is our number one priority when it comes to exploring the open water. Before each Wild Florida airboat ride, we provide ear protection for each guest and require children five and under to wear life jackets. Our U.S. Coast Guard-approved airboats and Master captains will safely guide you and your family around Lake Cypress–the headwaters of the Florida Everglades.

Get more than just an airboat ride 

An airboat tour with us will be an incredible experience, but there is plenty more to do here at Wild Florida! Admission to our Gator Park is included with all of our Wild Florida airboat tour options. 

Inside our Gator Park, you can see over 200 animals and some wild shows when you visit. If your children love animals just as much as we do, make sure to take them to our Petting Zoo or Bird Aviary where they pet and interact with a variety of animals. Or, let them run around and have some fun on our covered playground. We also offer a unique opportunity to interact with one of 11 different animal encounters

If you're brave enough to try our Gator Nuggets, stop by our Chomp House Grill,  and you might be surprised by how tasty they are! We've got plenty for your family to do after you see some of the coolest wildlife on one of our airboat rides in Florida.

Visit Central Florida, but skip long lines 

It can be really frustrating waiting in long lines at a theme park. It takes up so much time during your day, and most people wonder why they even decided to get in line in the first place. Sometimes, you can't even ride everything in one day! 

At Wild Florida, there is only a short wait right before you get on your airboat. No two airboat tours are the same and our Florida airboat Master captains will be sure to make it an unforgettable experience and answer all of your questions.
