Owner description: Looking for something other than the concrete jungle? Stop by Wild Willy's for a thrilling airboat tour and get in touch with Florida in it's natural habitat. Glide across the headwaters of the everglades in high performance 6 passenger airboats and our newly added 14 passenger boat with our licensed and fully insured Master Captains. Huge alligators, bald eagles, the endangered snail kite and more await your arriva! At the end of your educational tour, you'll have the opportunity to take pictures with our resident alligators Cricket, Sergio, Blue and Splash! We treat them and all of our customers like family. So come on out and...SURROUND YOURSELF WITH NATURE! Try HeadWaters Take-Out (located within Wild Willy's) after your excursion and grab a bite and relax in our outdoor pavilion! Burgers, Dogs and more. Try our Gator bites, made to order! Come on out and see why we have more airboat ride reviews than anyone in Orlando, Kissimmee, St.Cloud, Tampa, Miami and even worldwide.

I have not been to Orlando in years. Just came back and it is a mess!! Nothing but traffic and shopping centers. Where did the wonderful natural Florida I once knew go to? We took a short ride to St. Cloud and had a wonderful time at Wild Willy's Airboat Rides. No stress, beautiful scenery, nice people running the place. You can even have a cheap beer out on the patio and look out onto the lake while your kids run around the grounds. Airboats go FAST so hold on and think of that in case you have someone who is elderly in your party. We saw many bald eagles, alligators, snakes, birds. Overall an awesome experience. GO FOR IT!!! You won't be disappointed.

NOTE: Eat at "The Cat Fish Place" in St. Cloud on Rt 192 before or after you go. This is where all the locals eat. Great prices, family atmosphere. You can even try the alligator, turtle or frog! Where else can you find that?

We have 2 sons of 14 & 11 years old and we ALL unanimously agree this has been our favourite trip during our holiday to Orlando from the UK. We first discovered Wild Willy's Airboat Tours in 2010 when we were greeted with a friendly welcome, personal treatment and sound knowledge of the wildlife at Lake Toho. Our second visit did not disappoint! Captain Willy himself took us out again and guided us around the amazing wildlife; a bald eagle; water snakes; giant apple snails; various birds and many aligators, some with babies! Feeling the fresh air wip through your hair on the boat is exhilarating! Highly recommended!

Everyone treated us like family there, Gail let my wife use one of their coats because we went on a chilly morning. Capitan Dan was great had good stories and really made us feel like he cared about us seeing everything we could see. We saw a bald eagle up close and a momma gator and her babies. Was worth the trip there and seeing everything. I advise you to put this on your calendar when your in Orlando.

I went out for one hour tour. Definitely recommend the one one b/c just right. 30 minutes too short. Our boat Captain Bud was awesome. Very professional and informative. He made the tour a plus. Took us to some excellent spots for fotos and scenic. The staff is friendly and helpful. I would definitely do this again and recommend to friends and friends.
