Wild Florida Airboats, an airboat tour and alligator exhibit attraction, is pleased to announce that they have added seven new alligators to their natural theme park located in Kenansville, Florida. Residents and visitors to Orlando will be able to learn about and view these gators up close at Wild Florida’s nature preserve.

Wild Florida relocated seven monster alligators from a gator habitat near Okeechobee to their natural Florida theme park near Orlando, which includes 4,200 acres of protected swamps, marshes, and rivers that make up the headwaters of the Central Florida Everglades. Wild Florida Airboats has an agreement with the county, state, and Florida Wildlife Commission that enables them to relocate alligators.

“We have an active alligator farm permit that allows us to transfer gators in and out of our property,” says Ranier Munns, co-founder of Wild Florida. “The gators will nest and hatch babies this year, which should be exciting for our guests to witness.”While relocating the alligators, Wild Florida recorded a video of the process, which was featured on the Local 6 News earlier this month.

Wild Florida is located in Kenansville, Florida, which is roughly 60 miles SSE of Orlando. The natural theme park was created to give tourists and locals the chance to experience an airboat eco tour and Florida wildlife attractions at the same location.

In addition to airboat rides and wildlife, Wild Florida offers guided fishing and hunting trips, a tropical bird aviary, a gift shop, real Florida barbeque, a 500 foot sightseeing dock, and alligator encounters.
