Description

from Wild Willys Airboat Tours
Thank you for taking an interest in Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours. Please go to our website to learn a little more!

https://wildwillysairboattours.com/

We offer amazing full one hour tours starting a 9am seven day a week!
You’ll love our narrated tours on 23,000 acres of beautiful Lake Toho aboard our coast guard approved airboats with our fully insured licensed captains. Our sleeker, faster 6 passenger boats can offer a more personal tour and our newly added 14 passenger boat can accommodate larger groups!

The great thing about our central location is that we can change our route throughout the year. Our rides actually depend a lot on the water temperature. On our “winter tours” (Nov – April) the water is cooler and the gators stay on top to absorb the heat. The month of May they’re here and there because it’s mating season. Our “summer tours” (June – Oct) the water temperature is hot and gators tend to stay under the water to get away from the heat. These months we go a different path into shady areas to see gators.

We have 4 beautiful baby gators (Cricket, Sergio, Blue and Splash) in our aquarium to hold and take pictures with you at no additional charge. Be sure and bring your camera!! And don’t worry, our captains show you exactly how to hold them. Say cheese!

Reservations are best. We have a lot of walk-ins and we don’t want you to wait any longer than you have to. There is a covered pavilion with picnic tables, a non-smoking back deck where you can eat, drink and snack all while "Surrounding Yourself with Nature".

Wild Willy's also serves food! After your tour, grab a bite at Headwater's Take-Out. Be adventurous and try our World Famous Gator Bites! Buttermilk and hot sauce marinated pieces of alligator meat, tenderized and fried golden brown. For the rest of you, choose from cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, French fries and more, dressed the way you like it! (open 10am to 4pm, seven days a week, subject to change). We have a store on-site where we accept credit cards, sell t-shirts, hats, gator souvenirs, soda, cold beer, ice and a few snacks.

So come on out and try something different! Most people have never been on an airboat ride much less held a real live alligator. Some have said “It feels like flying without ever leaving the ground!” Others have commented “It’s like a magic carpet ride!” There is a reason we maintain our #1 status on TripAdvisor with over 2,100 reviews and growing. We want our guests to top off their vacation by having the most enjoyable and most memorable airboat ride they’ve ever been on. We LOVE our repeat customers!

PLEASE CALL FOR DIRECTIONS: GPS GIVES YOU AN EXIT NUMBER OFF THE FLORIDA TURNPIKE THAT IS SUNPASS ONLY, NO CASH. CALL SO YOU'RE NOT LATE AND POSSIBLY MISS YOUR TOUR TIME!

"Airboat fun!"
Reviewed June, 2016 NEW
Our first day in the Orlando area from Oregon, we did an airboat tour. It was hot and humid but the airboat tour was a great relief and very enjoyable. We didn't see many animals, a few alligators. We did see a lot of amazing birds and plants. It was a very fun trip and at the end we got to hold a baby alligator.
Tip: Very fun and memorable experience!

"Fun and informative"
Reviewed March, 2016
We had a total of 19 people in our group with ages ranging from17 months to 53 years. We had two airboats and captains Ed and Tyler had us meet in a couple places along the tour. The highlight for all was being able to hold the baby gators after the tour. Everybody got a chance and Ed and Tyler were very patient! Great tour!
Tip: To get to airboat the signs along the way say "dead end road" .It is marked with wild Willys signs though

"Great experience"
Reviewed March, 2015
We were excited to go on this trip. My husband & I had taken this trip before with Wild Willy's & my sister & friend Tina wanted to go on an airboat ride & to see alligators. We purchased the tickets & followed our GPS which ended up sending us around in a circle 3 times on the Florida turnpike. Just as this happened Wild Willy's called us to ask us if we needed help getting there & gave us the correct info to get there & moved us to an hour later tour so we could still go. They called us back 10 min later to see if we were OK & to offer more assistance if needed. They were very helpful & wonderful to work with. We saw about a 3-4 yr old gator & a few beds of baby alligators. Saw a bald eagle nest with 2 mature eagles & 2 younger ones also. A lot of birds, nesting hens & cows were also seen. It was a lot of fun. Guide was very informative also.
Tip: If on an early am tour like the 7:30 or 9:00 am dress warm in a sweatshirt with a hood. It is a little chilly & windy. Alligators come out better when its warmer

"Fun in an airboat"
Reviewed February, 2015
We had a 1pm reservation, and Wild Willys checked in with us to be sure we were on our way:) We had a fun ride seeing, alligators, bald eagles, turtles, water moccasins, osprey, and much more. A very fun and interesting hour.
Tip: Its a good idea to have a jacket. (At least this time of year.)

"Exhilarating & beautiful"
Reviewed January, 2015
We looked at a few offering airboat rides and glad we picked Wild Willys. It lasted an hr on the water which was perfect, some offer 30mins, that would have been too rushed. Captain Ed was very informative about the whole area as he had grown up there. We saw alligator of various sizes, osprey, bald eagle, turtle and as we went later in the day to be on the lake as the sun was setting was beautiful. We loved it!
Tip: Def go for the 1 hr session, take a camera with a good lens

We had never had the entire family together for an airboat ride, but we all very much enjoyed our experience with Wild Willy's and were happy they were equipped to serve us as a complete group. They were ready for us when we arrived. We had a down to earth good time and Captain Brandon commanded his ship safely with some fun and good jokes besides answering all our questions with good knowledge of the adventure. The Grandkids loved holding Sergio. An adventure worth taking.

Turned up without booking with my wife and 2 teen kids and wow did we have a good time. We went out on a 6 seater with no other people with capt' Tyler (who my I add is an absolute mind of information and a gent) and had a great time time whizzing around, looking at gators, birds nesting and many other fun and interesting things. Would definitely advise anybody to use these guys. Thanks Wild Willys for a wonderful hour!

This tour was amazing to say the least. And Captain Tyler was the best guide. If you haven't heard of swamp land being beautiful, it truly was. We saw alligators and their nests, lotus flowers, Lilly pads, bald eagles, etc. then, we actually held a baby alligator. We are so glad we chose to do this tour before leaving Florida. It was so much fun!! If you haven't done this tour, do it!! You'll be glad you did!

"Ride with Wild Willy"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 29, 2016 NEW

My husband, 4 year old daughter and I rode with the man himself. He was super nice, and the ride was fantastic. Our daughter was timid and slightly scared and he was very nice to her. The ride was long enough to keep the attention of a 4 year old and us. We saw 3 large gators, 2 of them were near their nest. We also saw lots of birds, turtles and gigantic snails. We also got splashed with some swamp water because we were sitting up front. When we came back, we got to hold and touch baby gators. After Wild Willy kissed them. Well worth the trip out there!
