Description

from Wild Willys Airboat Tours
We offer amazing full one hour tours starting a 9:00am, 7 days 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. During the month of May, they’re here and there because it’s mating season. On 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, 7 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.

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!”

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!"
June, 2016
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"
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"
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"
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"
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 a great time on our airboat tour with Captain Eddy. Captain Eddy is the best, and it's obvious he loves what he does and knows a ton about the local wildlife. We saw about a dozen gators and 7 bald eagles. The ride was fun, and relaxing. Highly recommend.

This was a really enjoyable tour - Tyler was our "captain". We saw so many bird species and several alligators in the wild. He was very knowledgeable about the area. Highly recommended.

My wife and I just love airboats and took the opportunity to introduce some friends visiting for the first time. We chose Wild Willys and are very pleased we did. The premises are clean and very tidy as are the boats. The whole set up is professional and efficient. Obviously sightings cannot be guaranteed but our friendly Captain Mark gave us a very interesting ride, during which he pointed out alligators ranging from real babies to big ugly ones! He took us to locations where we saw hawks and bald eagles as well as other birds. Altogether a trip we will be repeating.
