Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours
If you’re looking for a place to visit other than Orlando theme parks, Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours is the place to go. Conveniently located close to the city’s major attractions, experience another kind of thrill that you can’t get anywhere else -- on an airboat ride! Choose from a One Hour Eco Tour, available 7 days a week, or a One Hour Sunset Tour, which runs November-March when daylight savings ends from Sunday-Thursday. Each tour is a unique adventure because wildlife is always changing. Depending on the month, your captain will navigate toward the areas where gators can be seen. During winter tours (December-April), the water is cooler, so you will see gators on top of the grasses to absorb heat, but during summer tours (June-November), you can find gators resting in the shade. May is the month where gators can be anywhere because it’s mating season.
But regardless of when you go, there’s lots to take in as you glide through the swamps and marshes of the beautiful 23,000-acre Lake Tohopekaliga, the Headwater of the Everglades. From gators, snakes, birds and other creatures, you’ll have a chance to see and learn about them and their natural environment while riding comfortably on a six-passenger airboat that’s handicapped accessible and equipped with stadium seating. And you don’t have to worry about any rails blocking your view like other airboats! End the tour by snapping a free photo holding two gators, Sergio and Cricket. Dining options from Headwater’s Take-Out and fishing activities are also available. Have an excursion of a lifetime with Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours tickets from right here on BestofOrlando.com!
