Capt. Eddie went out of his way to make our tour enjoyable. He pointed out different species of birds, took our photo, talked about the trees and vegetation, and made the boat ride enjoyable. This is must see tour.

It was a great family outing. We all had a great time. My kids are 8 and 5 and they enjoyed it. It was a little hard to find, but worth it.

In August, I went on one of the airboat tours, lead by Capt Bud, and accompanied by my son and his family, which included 7 and 11 year old girls, and it was wonderful. His knowledge of the Everglades and it's flora and fauna was fascinating - from huge "apple" snails to a herd of cows that live there! We... More

I had trouble booking online so I called up and they were very helpful on the phone, and still gave us the online discount. Willy was our driver/guide - he was very knowledgable, picked some good spots to pause at so that we could see and learn about the wildlife, and we got some good speed in the open water.... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Great tour guide/Captain who was very knowledgable about all everything that lives in and around the lake. Saw plenty of young alligators (let's face it, that's what we all want to see!) and the only negative aspect is that the time goes far too quickly. And just to make the visit even better, we all...

This was my fourth time in Florida, but I'd never been on an airboat tour before. We were recommended Wild Willy's and Captain Eddy showed exactly why. He knew every tree and species we encountered and over the course of our hour on the water kept us both informed and entertained in equal measure - the perfect combination. There were... More

Thank you Alan for choosing Wild Willy's. We're definitely the place to go to get away from the hustle bustle of the city. Just sitting on the back deck waiting for your tour can be a soothing experience; all the varieties of birds across the channel, feed the fish, and relax. Capt. Eddie knows his wildlife having grown up here... More

We were looking to visit an airboat tour close to Orlando as we didn't want to drive down to the Everglades. What an amazing place Wild Willy's is! Such a beautiful area - rural and peaceful with stunning natural vistas. We booked onto the 11:30 tour and had the boat to ourselves which was great. Our Captain, Captain Eddie, was... More

I'm so glad you liked Wild Willy's. As a "Mom and Pop" business, we strive to make the customers happy-not feel like a cattle drive. Capt. Eddie loves what he does, he ran this lake as a boy and still enjoys it. Thank you so much for choosing Wild Willy's More

In a more peaceful place than local parks we wanted a last family outing for the week so we wanted to take the Oregonian for a boat ride. GPS's set we found Wild Willies Air Boat.
