Everglades Airboat Tour
Just south of Orlando is the Wild Florida Airboats and Wildlife Park in Kenanville, the self-proclaimed “middle of nowhere” destination featuring airboat tours, ranch buggy tours, a wildlife park, a restaurant, and more. Enjoy Florida’s natural beauty with an 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 leisurely stroll 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 love the covered playground as well as feeding and learning more about baby animals in the Petting Zoo. Upgrade to the half-day package to include a delicious barbeque lunch at the Chomp House Grill (featuring pulled pork, smoked ribs or smoked chicken plus a side dish, bread, and drink) and an alligator souvenir.
Step away from the hustle and bustle of the city to visit, Kenansville, an hour drive outside Orlando, where you can enjoy Florida’s natural beauty. Your day begins with a 30-minute or 1-hour or airboat tour deep into the 4,200 acres (1,699 hectares) of protected swamps, marshes and rivers that make up the Central Florida Everglades. Your US Coast Guard captain will give you an in-depth look at the gators, birds, eagles, trees and plants that make up these beautiful wetlands. Experience an untouched part of Florida and soak in the quiet, picturesque atmosphere, where you won’t see any city development or homes. Have an unforgettable Everglades experience that promotes a connection with animals while inspiring education and conservation.
