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!

“Great fun and you get to hold a Gator at the end”
Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

If you can't make it down to the Everglades then this is the next best thing and worth the hunt to find it. Capt Duane did his best to show as much wildlife and Gators as possible. Great fun and informative.

“Thank you Capt. Dan”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

I can highly recommend this tour. It took us a little while to actually locate it so thank goodness for GPS. Capt. Dan took us out on the airboat across the Everglades and showed us mid size and baby alligators. The scenery was spectacular and Capt. Dan's knowledge about the area was comprehensive. We even got to hold a baby alligator on our return. The food at the kiosk was good (hamburgers and alligator bites) and the price was reasonable for the experience. Meeting Little Earl the resident alligator was a treat. If you can find it and have some time while in Orlando, take the opportunity and go to Wild willy's Airboat Tours.

“A must do in Florida!!!!”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had an amazing day with Captain Duane. The advantage of Wild Willy's is the very small groups which gives the opportunity for much closer interaction! Duane was brilliant as were are all the staff we came into contact with. We saw baby alligators and were able to ask as many questions about the environment and alligators as we wanted. Only three of us on the boat for our trip so we had the advantage of having Duane and his knowledge all to ourselves! he got out and took photo's of us and there was also the opportunity to hold a baby gator when we got back. A must do whilst you are on holiday - don't miss it!!!
