The guys that run this really are super knowledgeable about the area, the waters, and of course about the gators! There wasn't a question among us that stumped our captain. Loved it, will do it again!

Went here a couple of years ago and thought it would be fun for my visiting family to experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, including my 3 1/2 year old grandson.. Was very interesting and our guide, Aaron, was very knowledgeable. Saw some baby alligators,...More

We didn't see as many gators this time, but it is still really fun to be out gliding on top of the water, over tall grasses, under the spanish moss, exploring down the waterways. We spotted tons of turtles, birds, and a gator up surprisingly...More

This was my third time visiting Wild Bill's! It is always a fun time on a warm and sunny day. If you want to see alligators, it is better to go in the afternoon on a warm and sunny day. The ride is quite noisy,...More

It was a great adventure. Saw nature at its best - gators, turtles, birds of all kinds, and the best was a natural spring. If you're ever in the area of Inverness, FL, this is a must do!

We were repeat customers and had the very knowledgeable Captain Doug. My wife and I are birders and we're both deeply impressed with the captain's knowledge of bird behavior, calls, and species names. We went early in the day and were rewarded with an undisturbed...More

Didn't know what to expect and was not disappointed. Kids were scared at first but our captain was very knowledgable and made it interesting. Would highly recommend. Mention you saw their ad for a discount of $10 each person.

The ride went for about an hour and whilst the cost for us was included in a day tour I believe it's about $45 for an adult but you get $10 off if you mention you've seen the discount on their website
