My Mother and I went on Dec 30 and it was a bit chilly, therefore we did not get to see any reptiles, but there were many birds. The Captain was very informative and entertaining. We traveled at a nice pace so that while Captain Aaron explained the surroundings and sites we could actually see things. Mind you the boat... More

We had 6 people and took the private airboat tour. It was a two hour tour. Being in the smaller airboat we were able to go to the other side of the dam. We saw many birds and several alligators. It was wonderful. The cypress trees are amazing. Make sure you take a jacket even on a warm day it... More

Went on a fun tour the day after Christmas. We had fun and learned a lot about the Withlacoochee River. Captain Steven was very knowledgeable and made the tour personal. I highly recommend you ask for him. Thanks Ed you spoil us.

This airboat tour was awesome. I don't know what I was expecting, but I loved it. Our tour guide was just the right blend of down home charm and great information. I would recommend bring a jacket, because even in warm weather, those boats really go and it gets a little windy. We saw lots of avian wildlife, though the... More

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
