What You'll Get
Airboats are now used primarily for marine-life-friendly water transportation, though they were originally used to create feathered hair. Leave the Rush albums inside and take a tour in fan-blown style with today's Groupon: for $17, you get a seat on a six-passenger airboat for a one-hour narrated tour of Lake Tohopekaliga from Wild Willy's Airboat Tours, located in St. Cloud.
Your narrated tour of Lake Tohopekaliga begins as you strap yourself into the stadium seating of a 500-horsepower airboat. Their high-performance machines come equipped with licensed captains and provide uncluttered views of nature's flora and fauna to all six passengers. As you skim gracefully over some of the more than 18,000 acres of placid waters, you'll catch glimpses of plenty of different species of wildlife, possibly including sightings of purple gallinules, great blue herons, bald eagles, endangered snail kites, ibises, turtles, and alligators. Your captain will narrate memorable events and point out things to see, whether they are animal, vegetable, or Rob Schneider. Back at Wild Willy's landlubber location, you can even hold their baby alligators, guaranteeing a memorable vacation picture without a grown man in an animal suit. Get out of the house, out of the city, and out of your un-aquatic routine with today’s deal.

About Wild Willy's Airboat Tours
There’s nothing like skimming across Lake Tohopekaliga’s surface, propelled by a 500hp fan. That’s the thrilling experience offered by the Wild Willy’s Airboat Tours, which drift in the gentle marsh to catch sights of great blue herons, 12-foot alligators, snails, and other native creatures. All the while, your guide will provide expert information on the lake and the surrounding terrain, plus help you spot the wildlife.
Wild Willy's has a 14-passenger boat to handle larger groups and several six-pack boats for that personal touch. After the tour, guests can take pictures with four resident baby gators: Blue, Splash, Sergio, and Cricket. Guests are encouraged to arrive at least 15 mins before scheduled time for check-in and bathroom use.
