Capt. Bud was awesome on the tour very knowledgeable about the area. Had the gator bites afterwards to top it off. We did see gators,turtles,eagles,white egrets,sand hill cranes,and even some cattle. The only downside to the experience was the front counter personnel wasn't the friendliest.

We went on an hour long ride with Captain Bud. The boats can take 6 people at a time, but there just the three of us plus Captain Bud. He did a great job of showing us all kinds of wildlife ranging from sandhills cranes to alligators. At one time we were in an area that had more baby alligators... More

I've lived here all my life and finally decided to do an airboat tour. Our Captain was knowledgeable, friendly and knew where all the wildlife was. We saw some amazing baby alligators! Every local needs to do this and check it off the bucket list! Our Lake Toho is treasure.

My husband and I just got back from a Wild Willie airboat tour with Capt. Eddie and we both had a great time. Capt Eddie was very good about making sure everyone got to see the wildlife and that we had a fun ride. The cost was very reasonable. The only thing that could have been better is if my... More

So this was pretty difficult for us to review Wild Willys as it was 'ok' but not great in relation to value for money. The ladies in the shack we very nice and friendly. The facilities clean. The tour was just.... well.... Bird spotting!! I know the guides can't bring out the wildlife and I know it's not WW fault... More

I'm sorry your experience didn't meet your expectations. Every tour is different in what you'll see based on; time of year, weather plays a big part, temperature of the water, and wind. As for a backup plan? Hummmm Thank you for your feedback, Capt Willy More

Our group arrived without a reservation (didn't know we needed one) but they accommodated all eight of us and we had a wonderful experience with our guide Capt. Bud. He was so informative and intent on showing and telling us the most fascinating details of the area. Beautiful and so interesting. A great tour and staff!!! Thank you!

This is the second time we've visited Wild Willy's & this time our captain was Bud - he's brilliant! Friendly and extremely knowledgeable, Bud made sure that we had an excellent trip around the lake. We saw plenty of Florida wildlife (bald eagles, birds, cranes, baby gators...) and Captain Bud was more than happy to answer any questions. We stopped... More
