“Wild Bill is Gone but the fun carries on!”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

A warm September day and a private ride on the airboat. A informative chat with the driver about the Withlacoochee River its inhabitants. Then faster riding and kicking up the water. We all enjoyed the ride. Airboats are a different kind of ride because you glide over the top of the water.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

My fiance and I stayed at Sunshine Cabin rentals (whcih was wonderful) and didn't really think there was much to do in the city of Iverness, until we found out that Wild Bills was located literally right across the street.
We decided to take the "airboat alligator safari" and were very, very pleased. First off, the staff is wonderful. The lady working at the front desk was so friendly and welcoming and gave us some history about alligators and other crazy animals in the area.
We took the 2:30 tour and it was pretty full which was strage for it being a weekday, but it was awesome. The ride was almost an hour long, and it's jsut so crazy to see how the airboat works. It could go in deep water, and go into the most shallow areas. Our driver thought it was funny to make sharp turns and get the young girls in the front row wet, lol.
Anyways, we saw well over 20 alligators. Both big and small.
They also have a baby alligator pool, and for three dollars donated to conservation- you can hold one which is exciting and a little scary!

My sister(julie) and I surprised her mother, Joan. Joan really wanted to do an airboat ride. I chose to take them to WildBill's. We had a great ride and very scenic and enjoyable. I would suggest anyone to go and try it.

“Awesome Airboat Tour”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

My boyfriend and I had a great time with Wild Bill's. Airboat ride was fun and very informative. There were lots of alligators, birds and turtles that we saw. Beautiful scenery. The only downside is you just want to keep riding in the boat lol. Great time...we highly recommend this!

“expensive for one hour”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

almost two hundred dollars 4 people for a one hour fast and not much nature boat ride, with that price you would think the driver wouldn't need a tip jar
