    What to Expect
    Just south of Orlando is the Wild Florida Airboats and Wildlife Park in Kenansville, the self-proclaimed “middle of nowhere” destination featuring airboat tours, a wildlife park, restaurant and more.

    Enjoy Florida’s natural beauty on an exciting airboat ride. Hop on board a U.S. Coast Guard-certified airboat and skim the shoreline or head deep into the 4,200 acres of protected swamps, marshes, and rivers of the Central Florida Everglades. Catch a glimpse of alligators, eagles, turkeys, wild boars, wading birds (known as roseate spoonbills), and other native creatures. A life jacket and ear protection are provided for each guest.

    Back at the Wildlife Park, take a tour and get up close with more than 200 different animals. Check out the lemurs, sloths, zebras, watusi cattle, bobcats, and other animals native to South America, Africa, and Australia. Kids will love the covered playground as well as feeding and learning more about baby animals in the Petting Zoo.

    Experience the wild side of Florida during the popular Gator Show.

    The day includes a delicious lunch at the Chomp House Grill (featuring pulled pork, pulled chicken, or cheeseburger plus a side dish, bread, and drink) and commemorative photo.

    Thank you so much for sharing your feedback as it is very important to us. We have centralized pick up locations as Orlando is so spread out it would be hard for any tour company to collect everyone from their own hotel. We want the pick ups to be as quick as possible so you can enjoy more time on the tour. Florida is definitely the leader in bugs. We have different kinds at different times of the year as well as the weather is hit or miss sort of speak. Alligators as well like to grace us with their presence when they see fit. I am happy to know that you enjoyed the day and that Madeline was able to be part of that. Please do email us direct about the email correspondence so that I may look into this. This is not the service that we pride ourselves on and I would like to have it addressed so that it doesn't happen again in the future. Please email Kristin at reservations@floridadolphintours.com. Thank you again for your feedback!

    Enjoyed this experience. The airboat ride was great even though we didn't see too much (it was too hot for the crocs to be out) but we did see baby crocs and a mother in the weeds keeping an eye on them. Our granddaughter loved the sloth experience too!!

    I took my nephew here for his birthday. He had a blast riding in the boat and seeing the gators. Both of us are animal lovers, so we enjoyed seeing the wildlife. A little pricey, but definitely worth it.
