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.

“Best part of our vacation”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

My wife and I took a trip to the great sunshine state in June as we have for many years. She had never been on an airboat or seen and of the indigenous in their natural habitat so we booked a trip at Wild Willys. The trip turned out to be memorable and one of the best days of our vacation hands down! Captain Dan took us on an excursion through areas where many species of birds could be viewed. That was great but the best part was yet to come...the gators! He took us through areas where there were nests, baby alligators and slides where adult gators would access water to hunt and cool off. The temperatures that day were well into the 90s and the adults were staying cool so a morning visit or early evening when it will be cooler. we would not have traded the experience for any rollercoaster known to man.
Thank you Wild Willys and especially Captain for the very educational experience you're the best!

Thank you Russell Family for your review. You're right, it has been very hot and we're not into Aug and Sept yet. I really enjoyed your company and happy the wildlife cooperated for us. Sergio and Cricket say hi, thanks for the memories. Captain Dan

“Best airboat ride in Orlando”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

This was our second visit to Wild Willy's and was as great as the first time! Even though we booked on a tour that could have others on it, we ended up having the boat to ourselves! Duane, our captain, was knowledgable and friendly. We really enjoyed his fast driving and the donuts on the water! You also get to hold a little alligator at the end, which is a great experience. Would recommend and will hopefully return next year!

“Wild Willys was a fun experience with friendly staff.”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Had a blast. Our Captain was friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. He gave us an excellent ride. We saw a couple of gators and some bald eagles! The ride itself was fun. Huge bonus was getting to hold baby gators after the ride. We will go back again next time we are in town. Thanks for a great family vacation memory.

Oh thanks for the review, Wild Willy likes to know I'm working. Sergio had his "sad" face on when you left, he just likes some people more that others. Glad I could show you a good time, Capt. Duane

Reviewed 30 June 2014

Fantastic experience enjoyed by all five of us. Wild Willy kept 13 year old twin boys interested and told them lots of fascinating facts. Views of scenery and wildlife were stunning and we would highly recommend this attraction to other families.
