Florida may have some of the best theme parks in the United States, but did you know that we also have some of the most impressive wildlife parks? Bring the whole family (children under 3 are free!) for a fun and safe day out in the Florida Everglades, which includes an airboat ride with a Coast Guard–certified boat captain, a visit to the Wild Florida Gator Park, and lunch for your whole group. Expect round-trip transportation from Orlando, safety vests and ear protection for the airboat ride, and plenty of alligator and wildlife sightings! Alternatively, if you just need transportation to Wild Florida Park, we can do that too!
There’s something for every member of your family at Florida Wildlife Park: playgrounds, animal encounters, and more!

The Wild Florida Park, located in the Everglades, is a must for animal lovers. The park is “in the middle of nowhere,” and a glimpse into what Florida looked like over a 1,000 years ago. At the park, you’ll learn about the mission to protect and preserve Central Florida’s natural beauty, and its wildlife.
More than 200 animals live here, including lemurs, zebras, watusi, bobcats, sloths, and, of course, alligators. Most of the 150 alligators living here were rescued after the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission deemed them a “nuisance” in the wild, and would have been euthanized. Crusher is the star of the show, as the biggest gator in the park, weighing one ton, and measuring 13.5-feet-long.
The park has a variety of attractions, which include airboat rides, a safari drive-thru park, and Gator Park. Depending on your visit, you can expect to enjoy safe viewing areas, a chance to feed some of the exotic animals, and more.
