With an airboat just for the two of us we had a great trip. Our captain, Eddie, was able to tailor the ride to our requirements (bird-watching) and found us the birds we wanted to see. With tiny young alligators and fully grown ones added to the mix this really is a trip not to be missed. After the ride... More

We took a group of 24 students to Florida on a science trip and contacted Wild Willy's via email looking for a company willing to accommodate our school group. They were BY FAR the best price, and the most kind and accommodating company out there. The guides were super knowledgeable and the kids learned a ton about the ecosystems out... More

Our trip with Bud was relaxing and fun. He was a very knowlwdgeable guide and the trip seemed authentic and personalized. It was nice to get away from the tourist feeling of Orlando and was a great way to engage with nature. Great for boat lovers and fresh water enthusiasts. Alligator bites were yummy, too!

Thank you for choosing Wild Willy's. Let us do the driving, sit back and relax. With the water cold and the sun out, the big male gators are sitting up in the grasses. Lots of bald eagles, and other species of birds to look at. And don't forget the bass are biting too. Sergio and Cricket say Merry Christmas !... More

Thank you for the "two thumbs up". I enjoyed taking you out and showing you the beauty side of Florida. It might be cold but just bundle up and leave the driving to me.

My family and I have the pleasure to meet Capt. Eddie. He was a very nice and chatty, and told us alot about the wildlife and the nature. Was our first ride on a airboat but definately not the last. After the ride we tried to taste alligator meat which was a a funny experience.

Hi Jan, thank you for taking the time to review Wild Willy's. Captain Eddie is one of a kind, he knows this lake like the back of his hand. He ran barefoot through these parts as a boy. We really appreciate you choosing us to show you the nature part of Florida. Wild Willy More
