Wild Bill’s Airboat Tour!

Photo Mar 08, 3 44 46 PMEveryone has a bucket list, and we are no exception. This past Sunday was another opportunity for us to cross something off of ours.

We had seen Wild Bill’s Airboat Tours advertised on signs along the highway near Inverness, Florida, as well as on television, so we figured they must be a good one. Since we were in the area, now was a good a time as any to check them out.

The best way to describe the fun is visually. Here were our sights and sounds from our fun hour-long airboat tour.

the river!

This is Bubba! He’s 12-feet long, and lives behind a double row of chain link fencing, with barbed wire across the top!

Sometimes the best way to experience  something, is to crank up the volume and ride along! Enjoy!

We had such a great time at Wild Bill’s Airboat Tours! Our only word of caution is that it can get quite windy, and maybe chilly, so plan and dress accordingly!
