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.

This trip was not only just an airboat tour in the swamp. My daughters got a chance to hold an real alligator kid...fantastic!! A memory for life! Captain Willy was an excellent guide...lots of humor and very good to explain the wildlife and the nature. Birds, alligators and great atmosphere. We will do it again next year!

Our guide was very informative about the area and animals throughout the tour. The airboat ride was super fun and we even did a few donuts! By far the best part was when I got to hold a baby alligator named Sergio!!! :D I would totally do it again!

Thank you Betania for the review of Wild Willy's. Sergio does miss all the people he gets to meet, he needs a pay raise for sure. Glad you enjoyed the the tour, come back to see us when in Central Florida. Mrs Wild Willy

While visiting from Ohio Captain Bud did a very good job explaining all the wildlife in the swamp and finding the alligator nests....only saw 1 big mama gator protecting get nest and a couple little guys. Saw lots of beautiful birds. Would highly recommend visiting Wild Willys Airboat Tours on your next visit.

Thank you for leaving a review with Trip Advisor. Captain Bud, Wild Willy and Mrs Wild Willy all hale from Ohio! We love the change of seasons in Ohio, but sure don't miss the snow. We get to see green grass and trees, beautiful birds, alligators of all sizes, and flowers all year round. So happy to show you Florida's natural beauty. Mrs Wild Willy

This was our first time going on an airboat ride. We searched online to find a good quality / great entertaining facility.......Wild Willy's was a great choice!! Captain Dan was an excellent guide. As he was giving his "flight attendant" safety instructions he spotted a gator....that quick! He took us all around the area showing nests and momma's and explaining how you can tell if it is a new mom or a "seasoned" mom. He was very knowledgable and very entertaining. Love how he talks to the gators when he finds one :) Very memorable experience....would not trade any part of it....and would not hesitate to do it again. When you can entertain 3 teenagers and a 6yo all at the same time (parents too) that really say a lot about the Captain. A great big thank you to Wild Willy's and to Captain Dan!

Thank you Dicus Family. This isn't a job, it's a joy touring you around the lake. Every day we see something different, right now the Momma gators are preparing their nests for their eggs. It was my privilege showing you the beauty of Florida. Capt Dan

Thank you for the Trip Advisor review. I love taking out "newbies" and showing Florida's beauty, which is especially beautiful because of all the June rains. Capt Dan
