“not so much”

Wild Bill's Airboat Tours
Ranked #1 of 1 Tours in Inverness

Reviewed July 17, 2013

not so much fun, took the whole family on the tour, pretty boring not many alligators but lots of birds and other boats. Our captain didn't really say anything other than the safety info. the dam we went to is nothing more than a bunch of orange bouys laying across the water, we hit a rock and it was spinning the whole boat around and my son got sick. Also for price they charge one would think the earmuff could be new but no you can smell everyone elses stinky sweat.

If you and the family would like to see Florida wildlife from a different perspective, hop aboard a "Wild Bill's Airboat tour". Get in touch with nature on a 45 minute cruise investigating the wildlife and fauna in the river and channels. Air boats are safe and very fun. Make sure to bring your suits for a dip in the "springs" surrounded by Cyprus. If asked. the captain will also do a few 360's and "open her up". We seen small gators. ducks, osprey and a wide variety of birds.

decided on Wild Bill's as it goes up and down the river instead of just riding on Lake Pan... we had 17 people on our 10a .m journey and it was not crowded. nice stadium seating. good ear covers so the noise doesn't bother you. we saw 1 gator swimming, too warm for them now to be laying around. lots of herons and osprey nest high In the tree. Guide/driver, Steve from Plymouth , MI.. he was very informative and gave us a great ride and a few good twirls. it was a nice 50 minute tour of the Withlacoochee river..... used our 20% off coupon so made it $35 per person plus tax...

The airboat ride was great! We only saw 2 gators but saw lots of turtles and birds. We went on the 1pm ride and were told you see the most gators early in the morning. The driver was informative but did not talk your ear off the whole time. My 4 year old loved the ride. It was hot when we went (June) so the splashing of the water was refreshing. The turns and and speed were so much fun! I highly reccomend Wild Bill's!!

This was a family activity over the Christmas holiday break and we loved it. If you sit up front (we did), you will get wet, so be prepared and bring layers of clothing. It was amazing gliding over the water and seeing nature in a different way. We all had smiles ear to ear the entire ride. They whip you around here and there, for fun, but most of the ride is smooth sailing. You do see some crocs and other wildlife. excellent!
