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 arrival! 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! Come on out and see why we have more airboat ride reviews than anyone in Orlando, Kissimmee, St.Cloud, Tampa, Miami and even worldwide.

WIld Willy is da man!
I was there with my wife and a friend and we had a ride with Captain Willy himself!
This guys knows the area like anybody else. The trip was safe, comfortable and awesome.
At first, there are only 6 seats on the boat and that's really great comparing to other tours offering a trip for 12 on a single boat! We were a small group and we had the opportunity to listen every information. We saw alligators as well as birds and interesting vegetation. At the end, we took some pictures with a baby alligator and had a good meal outside. I TOTALLY RECOMMEND THIS AIRBOAT TOUR !!! REALLY BETTER THAN ANY OTHER EVERGLADE AIRBOAT TOURS.

My husband and I had a GREAT experience! Very knowledgable and friendly staff, adventurous tour and got to see quite a bit of wildlife and alligators. Great little gift shop and we loved holding the baby gators. We WILL be back next year!

My son and I had a Mom-Son Vacation and going on airboat ride was one of the things on our agenda. So glad we had our airboat experience with Captain Bud at Wild Willy's Airboat Tours as they have smaller airboats - seats 6 but it was just us so even better - so you hear and see everything. If you want to see alligators in their natural habitat, this will be a must see and do. If you like nature and want to learn about it, another reason to go.

Our party of three went out with Captain Bud. Great time, Captain Bud tailored our ride to our interests. Very helpful staff. Even had sweatshirts available for our cool March 2013 ride. Holding an aligator was an experience I'll never forget.

Our party of 8 went out with captain John and captain Bud this afternoon. Our ages range from 12 to 67. We had two boats with 4 of us on each. There was plenty of room and the seats were comfortable. The trip lasted an hour and there was plenty of wildlife including alligators, bald eagles and various cranes, herons, ibis and egrets with a constant flurry of native butterflies and dragonflies together with a host of plant life. Both John and Bud were very knowledgable and informative and very happy to stop if we saw anything of interest and answered all of our questions with humour.
Despite being incredibly hot today we all thoroughly enjoyed our time on the airboat skimming across the water with the occasional donut spin waving at each other as we raced along.
Back on shore the air conditioned gift shop supplied various knick knack type souvenirs and very reasonably priced drinks. They also have tables under cover for hot dogs, burgers and gator bites which all looked very clean. Toilets (restroom) was also available and was very clean. We also had the opportunity to hold two baby alligators at the end of the trip which I'm glad to say did not have their mouths taped. We were able to take our own photos at no extra cost.
This was our 3rd trip on an airboat in Florida but the first with Wild Willy. We definitely rate Wild Willys as the best. As for price, Wild Willys say they are the cheapest but once you've added the tax it probably works out similar. Saying that, I think a lot of airboat trips are for 30 or 45 minutes and Wild Willys is a good hour so still good value for money at $40
All in all this was a very welcome break from the parks and we would all recommend this to everyone wanting to see a little corner of the real Florida.
