Fall is here! And where are you? Sitting at your desk, with stressful emails just filling up in your inbox? Maybe you find yourself just staring out the window, trying to find some way to escape. Face it – you need a break from your daily routine, from waking up, going to work, and home again. While it may be tempting to just take it easy at home for a few days, where’s the fun in staying indoors? Instead, get some fresh air and enjoy an Orlando airboat tour.

Not all the animals in our backyard at Wild Florida had the happiest beginnings. Quite a few of them have been neglected or even abused before coming to us. Did you know there’s over 41,000 endangered species on the IUCN Red List? Over 60 of those endangered species call Wild Florida home, and we’re committed to doing our part so they are no longer classified as endangered. Our animal keepers do everything they can to give our animals the true care they deserve…

  • No such thing as a bad view

With an Orlando airboat tour, you don’t have to worry about kids complaining about bad seats like you might in a movie theater or at a play or sporting event, though we can’t promise they won’t argue over who gets to sit in the front row. Our airboats are able to carry about 12 people. And to ensure that everyone has a great view of the headwaters of the Everglades, the seats on the airboat are stacked like stadium seating!
