Go Wild With 4 Amazing Orlando Nature Adventures
Orlando is justly famous for its spectacular theme parks, but this part of the Sunshine State also offers a boat-load of outdoor adventures when you feel like going wild and exploring Florida’s natural side.
Boat Off to Bird Island
Get out on the water at The Black Hammock, in Oviedo, for an exhilarating, blow-your-hat-off, airboat ride to Lake Jesup’s Bird Island. You might see white pelicans, great blue herons, purple gallinules, bald eagles, or a rainbow of other native bird species taking flight. There are usually alligators lounging somewhere on the water’s edge, and back at the base camp you might even have a chance to meet a baby gator. Check out their night airboat rides for an extra thrill.
