“Awesome trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We took a morning trip with Captain Dan today and had a great time. We were concerned that our youngest (3 years) might be too small for the trip. Not at all. Capt Dan is very safe and mindful. We saw a ton of baby gators, one big boy in semi-open water and went into areas that you'd never imagine if you've only been on an outboard driven boat. If you go, be sure to bring your camera. We spotted a pair of nesting bald eagles, which was my personal highlight. The kids (and adults) will also enjoy the after trip fun. VERY worth the price of admission and highly recommended. Thanks for the experience!

We have a lot of children take rides on our boats and they have a blast or they go to sleep! Now is the best time to see baby gators since they were just born about a month ago and that was a bonus seeing the "big boy" in the open water. Thanks for the great review and letting everyone else know what a great time you had,

“Wild Willys Airboat Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I can absolutely recommend Wild Willys Airboat Tours - it was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip to Florida. The 'tour' lasted a full hour and was excellent value for money. It was the most exhilarating experience you could imagine. Captain Dan looked after us incredibly well (such a very nice man) and ensured that we got the most possible from our trip - including pointing out the most amazing wildlife including crocodiles, a bald eagle and many & varied birds. If you get the opportunity to experience this airboat tour, don't hesitate - you won't regret it!

I made sure everyone knew you called me "a very nice man", for some reason they needed reminding. Every tour I see something different and exciting to show passengers, I love my job! Thank you for the review, Captain Dan

“Wild Willies - reccommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

We drove to St Cloud to Wild Willies Airboat rides in September 2012, it was well worth the visit. The boats were quite new and clean and the area is very peaceful, we saw a few crocs and two Eagles which were amazing. Our driver gave us loads of inforamtion and was very good and very friendly. We were slightly late for our 9.00am ride becasue part of our route was Sun Pass only, so we needed to take a detour! They waited for us though and were absolutly fine about it. My 9 year old loved it, as did the rest of the family. Got to hold a baby gator at at the end of the ride which was fun. Would recommend this boat ride.

Thank you for the review and recommendation. Once in a while there are a few glitches getting to Wild Willys, but we always get everyone going. We are proud of our beautiful scenery and we have a lot of different wildlife and plant life to see on the lake. It is always great to hear that we can still entertain the young ones.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We have been here three times. This tour was really excellent. Our guide and captain, Bud, went out of his way to make our trip really memorable and interesting.... Great trip and made a great memory for the three of us making the tour!

Thanks for choosing Wild Willys again! Once I know a customer has been here several times before, it makes me a little nervous. I know I have a lot more to live up to and it sounds like I achieved that and more. Thanks for the great review and hope to see you all again.
