This was a great ride on the Withlacoochee River with a knowledgeable captain who stopped several times along the way to share valuable information about the ecosystem, numerous birds and history of the river. Wild Bill's also has baby gators and "Bubba" a 10-ft gator to observe before or after going on the tour.

This place is a little out of the way but is worth it. The staff are very friendly and quite informative about the area. The captain of the airboat was so friendly and knowledgeable and did his best to find the different types of critters that live in the river. Especially the gators. They also have baby gators that you... More

My first time on an air boat! It was a blast. Our boat captain was Doug and he did a great job of telling us about the different areas we saw on the boat. It was super hot so we did not get to see and Gators, but he went to several stops anyhow. The river itself was really beautiful.... More

From the time we arrived, signed in, paid and went out to wait, we spoke with one Captain who was very informative, as we watched Bubba, the very large gator. Then Captain Aaron took us out for the most enjoyable time. He told us all about the area, what we might see (due to the extreme heat, no gators), and... More

This place was awesome!! Capt. Aaron was the best! He knows the swamps like the back of his hand! We got to see a gator too! This is the one thing that's a MUST DO when you come to Florida! Thank you Wild Bills for the great memories!

We had a great tour with Captain Doug! The boat ride, scenery, and information shared with us made for a wonderful experience with our family from Colorado. Our granddaughter loved holding the baby alligators! Check out Bubba, the Huge alligator. Thanks, Doug , Yvonne, and Vicky for a super day!

My brother, sister-in-law and I took my parents (in their late 70's, early 80's) to Wild Bill's Airboat Ride. As my mom has a rather bad back, I was a little concerned but had no reason to worry. The boat ride was wonderful and my parents loved it - me, too. The captain was a local and was able to... More

The first half of the tour is slow and full of beautiful natural views and wildlife. The second half is a fast thrill-ride. Sit in the front row so you can get wet and cool down. We also stopped at a natural spring area that was so beautiful. The boat captain was knowledgeable and fun. Fair pricing and very safe.
