This is the only airboat tour we've done, but it's hard to imagine there could be a better experience. We saw gators, various birds (including bald eagles) and gorgeous plants/vegetation. Our captain was terrific, taking the time to point everything out and offer a lot of information in a very personable way that made it interesting for the adults and... More

If you are looking for the best airboat ride in Florida - you have found it! When we arrived at Wild Willy's we had the pleasure of meeting the entire "Wild Willy's" family. The ride itself was simply amazing - we were able to see small and large alligators, birds, cows, beautiful scenery & even a bald eagle! Captain Willy... More

Lucy is getting close to having little ones, the eggs should hatch within the next couple weeks. She's getting grumpier every day! It is nice to just sit and enjoy the scenery, quiet and peaceful. I too like the gator bites, especially with the sweet chili sauce. Hope all your pictures came out, especially with you holding Sergio. Thank you... More

Captain Eddie was excellent. Very informative about the wildlife and vegetation. We did some fun maneuvers in the airboat! Our kids are 12 and 14 and they loved it. The place and equipment is all clean and safe. The staff is very nice. After the ride we enjoyed some gator bites and fries at the food window.They have a neat... More

Hi Jeffrey, Capt. Eddie has been with us for not quite 2 weeks. He was born and raised on Lake Toho so he knows how to find the wildlife and have a little fun while searching. We enjoyed your company and hope your entire vacation was fun for the kids. Sergio and Cricket are sad to see the kids go... More

We had Wild Willy himself take us on our tour. It was absolutely awesome. Alligators in the wild and their nests. Loads of information about the wild life and area. Birds flying everywhere and yes that includes the wonderful site of a bald eagle in flight and then landing in the trees to watch us.... Mrs Wild Willy provided excellent... More

We had a great airboat ride! It was our second time we visit Wild Willy's and we will definitely come back. Captain Dan was very friendly and funny and told us a lot about the environment. We saw 3 big gators and a Bald Eagle and much more. At the end they made a picture of us with a little... More

Capt. Wild Willy can't remember names or what he did an hour ago, but he does remember faces. Thank you for the return visit. Capt Dan is the Man, he knows where the wildlife hides out. Thanks again, Mrs Wild Willy More

We were in the first boat of the day at 9 in the morning and there was plenty of wildlife to see including several 'gators. Captain Kenny gave an excellent narration to the tour and was willing to slow and stop the boat to allow us to take pictures. He even hopped out into the lake to take a photo... More

Hi to the James Family. Absolutely the 9am is the best time, everything seems bright and fresh. BUT not too many visitors want to get up that early while on vacation, I would have to think real hard on that too. Most visitors don't realize the water they are running on is about 4 inches deep, until the Capt. jumps... More

Capt Eddie was a great tour guide. We saw 'gators, (including a big one), nesting bald eagles, cranes, plus a host of other birds etc. Very informative and interesting. And we held the gator at the end.

Well Eddie thanks you for his 2nd review since his first day at Wild Willy's was 2 days ago, hey he's on a roll. He's done a great job, it definitely helps that he was raised around the area. He remembers how it was before Disney, lots of pasture, cows and dirt roads. Thank you so much for the review,... More

I read all the reviews of airboat tours around the area and Wild Willy's had the best....well now we see why! My husband, son, and I came out today and checked in at the front desk.
