Gatorland & Airboat Ride


A 110-acre family-owned wildlife preserve with hands-on exhibits and up-close encounters, Gatorland is a natural alternative to larger theme parks. Explore the free-flight aviary and petting zoo, take in an animal show, and observe a natural alligator-breeding marsh.

Gatorland showcases thousands of alligators, crocodiles, and birds, including 4 extremely rare leucistic (albino) alligators. Take in an exciting, one-of-a-kind reptile show. Then cool off at Gator Gully Splash Water Park, perfect for kids of all ages.

Tension builds and anticipation grows as a daredevil gator wrestler drags a 6- to 8-foot (1.8- to 2.4-m) alligator onto the sand with his bare hands. He climbs on the snapping animal's back to point out its survival features. After performing dramatic stunts, the alligator is rolled over and lulled to sleep, then awakened with just a tickle. Afterward you may even get a chance to get your picture taken on the gator's back.

Hold on tight as your airboat captain takes you on an exhilarating ride through Florida's wetlands on the St. Johns River. Spot alligators, turtles, birds, and other wildlife in their natural environment. Keep your camera ready to capture the beautiful scenery and the essence of Florida's natural charm.
