If you ever find yourself in north-west Florida (Panama Beach City, say), with a couple of hours to kill, do yourself a favour, and, book a trip with Wild Thang Airboat Tours. I say this as a person who's done most of the thangs we tourists do, whenever we're lucky enough to find ourselves in the Sunshine State: DisneyWorld, dolphin... More

Was skeptical at first when we pulled into parking lot, but the staff were excellent and supportive. Our guide was very informative. Felt safe. Comfortable. Bring sunglasses preferably ones that work good on lakes and rivers (reduce glare). Binoculars too. Good time.

We were in Panama City Beach in January and rode 'Wild Thing'. We went into the marshes, rode over mud, into the air and were told we could see an 11 foots alligator! I'm glad the alligator stayed home! We were in the air, around a lot of curves and in about 12 inches of water! Lots fun and lasted... More

Called Wild Thang airboat tours and received their answering machine, They returned my call very promptly and after inquiring about the tour and explaining I was in a wheelchair, they said no problem. Arrived a little early to check out the layout of the docks and boats as I have been disappointed before with other places that said no problem,... More

Great time, too bad the gators did not make a showing but you can't force the wildlife to make an appearance. Well worth the money, the boat ride was fantastic.

Great trip! The Captain was very experienced and informative. Had a trip of 14 on the boat, everyone was smiling from the start to finish! This was my second trip with them. Great family fun! Highly recommended.
