Loads of Fun!!!!

Fun way to spend a couple of hours! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our reservation was later in the day, but they were able to accomodate us earlier. Would go back again.

My wife and I took our daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughters on Wild Bill's airboat tour, and it was a hit with all of us. We were ages 11 through 75, and we all had a great time. Our captain, Dangerous Doug, took us down the river where we saw many gators, big turtles, and waterfowl. We even saw an osprey... More

The ride was fun through the river but we didn't see but one alligator and that was from a distance. All of the staff was very friendly. What we learned as Northerners is don't go when it's hot or the river is low because you won't see alligators. If you want to get wet, sit in the front.

The more up front you sit the wetter you get. Saw turtles and small gators and swamp birds. Guide is informative. Nice and relaxing.

Friendly from the time we called to make a reservation to the end. Saw lots of wild life, baby alligators just hatched, a number of other gators, giant wasp nest, turtles, osprey nest and a number of other birds. Captain very nice and shared his knowledge. Even visited a natural spring! Would do it again!

The guys that run this really are super knowledgeable about the area, the waters, and of course about the gators! There wasn't a question among us that stumped our captain. Loved it, will do it again!

Went here a couple of years ago and thought it would be fun for my visiting family to experience. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, including my 3 1/2 year old grandson.. Was very interesting and our guide, Aaron, was very knowledgeable. Saw some baby alligators, birds and turtles. Would recommend. Definitely go online for the $10off coupons.

We didn't see as many gators this time, but it is still really fun to be out gliding on top of the water, over tall grasses, under the spanish moss, exploring down the waterways. We spotted tons of turtles, birds, and a gator up surprisingly close. The biggest smile from everyone in my family was when the Captain when zipping... More

This was my third time visiting Wild Bill's! It is always a fun time on a warm and sunny day. If you want to see alligators, it is better to go in the afternoon on a warm and sunny day. The ride is quite noisy, but they do provide you with ear protection. You will learn a lot about alligators,... More

What a great way to start our trip! Called the day before - very friendly lady helped me make reservations for the next morning. Easy to find - super friendly staff - clean boats that did not look old or rundown. Our guide - Aaron - was friendly and knowledgeable which made the trip even better. The Withlacoochee River is...
