Captain Eddie is the best. He spiced it up with a couple of water donuts. It was super and very educational.

Wild Willy s airboat ride with Capt Eddie was the best. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. Capt Eddie is very knowledgeable about all the birds and wildlife as well as the history of the area. We saw eagles, alligators, kingfishers,osprey,limpkins,herons,egrets,etc. Capt Eddie spent time discussing info about everything.Very nice trip.

We were so glad we did this when in Orlando. Our guide was very informative and stopped for photo opportunities frequently. We were provided with ear coverings to soften the airboat noise. Our guide showed us alligators, identified birds, the Venezeluan Apple Snails and explained a bit about the area's inhabitants. The pace was very good, sometimes fast, sometimes slow.... More

We had an excellent time on the tour. Captain Eddie was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to spot the gators even when they were well camouflaged. I recommend Wild Willy's airboat tour to anyone looking to experience the headwaters of the Everglades.

Captain Eddie has a keen eye, adding to his many skills and vast knowledge. Gators can be very hard to spot in the muck and plant life, but our captains are so experienced they'll see a gator a mile away. We appreciate the five stars! More

Brandon was very knowledgeable and ensures you have a great experience. My family could've stayed out in the swamp all day if it was possible. We took a different tour earlier that day swimming with the manatees and our guide then provided misinformed information and was clearly lacking in knowledge on the animals he works with. Brandon, on the other... More

Sorry to hear your experience wasn't the best with your manatee tour, but we're glad Wild Willy's could make a quick recover with an awesome airboat tour from Capt Brandon. He's a humorous and skilled guide, you were destined to have a great time with him. Take care! More

Air boat ride was very personalized and exciting. We stopped to see six alligators and several turtles. Capt. Eddie was very knowledgeable and extremly friendly. We were lucky to have him as our driver. Would recommend this tour for anyone.

Had a great time. Was worried because we had one with a walker but wasn't a problem. Captain Mark gave us interesting info about the area and animals. We got to hold an alligator after arriving back to the dock.

We aim to be as accommodating as possible, to any age and any special needs we can. Mark has a slew of interesting information to share on his tour, and holding the baby gators at the end is the cherry on top. Thanks for visiting! More
