Second Time at Wild Bill's just as good as the last time. The captain was very knowable and funny. Shop and office staff are friendly. Good value for money. Highly recommended. Thanks Wild Bills

This was my first experience in an Airboat and I must say it was fantastic. We saw a great amount of gators, both small and larger in size. We did some slow sight seeing and some fast paced action. It really mixed things up nicely. The scenery was beautiful and weather wise we couldn't have asked for a more picture... More

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.
