“Fun on the water!”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Facilities were under construction, but very adequate. Owners were very nice and helpful. Even though we didn't see any alligators, the guide took time to inform us about water fowl, plants, etc. We had lots of fun.

Owners were very open to suggestion of a grab bar installation in their bathroom. They even called me to tell me they had it installed.

“Love for the job showed through.”
Reviewed November 3, 2010

With four of us, two from the US and two from the UK, we looking for something fun to do outdoors and an airboat ride seemed like the best choice. In reading other reviews Wild Willys seemed to stand out, so we did call ahead and made reservations, we were hoping to find a family business with smaller boats, and that is exactly what we got.
The directions were good, we got right to the lake and were introduced to Captain Dan.
We got a great introduction to the lake, the boat, the ear protection and to the wild life. We saw gator's, we saw too many heron to count, we saw Snail Kites, we saw nesting Bald Eagles and we also saw a flock of 18-20 wild turkey.
While we were all adults, we learned a lot about Captain Dan's knowledge of the wildlife in the area and the interdependency of nature.

I would recommend the trip to families as well as adults. We got great pictures, we had a wonderful trip out, we met some wonderful people and we did get to hold that live alligator. Not something that any of us would have asked to do but worth it and the pictures none the less. This gator has a happy home.

If you are looking for a good, fun, exciting airboat ride, for our money this was/is it.

“Fantastic fun for the family!”
Reviewed October 28, 2010

My wife and I were really interested in taking an airboat tour for the first time and bringing our 2yr old son along. Wild Willy's was very accomodating with all our needs. We were able to call and reserve our seats and not have to give credit card info over the phone. The Captain was excellent in making sure we saw everything and fully satisified with our experience! My wife especially enjoyed the fact that they have live gators which you can hold! We had a blast and would definately do this again with this establishment whenever we visit FL!
