It was our last day and didn't want to waste it, so booked a 2 hour airboat ride. We'd already done an 1 hr tour with another company, so thought we'd see more by doing a 2 hr one. We had Captain Harold who was very knowledgeable and entertaining. The 4 of us had the boat to ourselves, and we... More

We had an amazing time with Captain Harold. We saw lots of gators and would highly recommend this to travelers. This will be something that we will do on future vacations!

This was the fourth trip for me, fifth trip for my wife. Took three of our grandkids. 9, 6 & 2. 60 minute trip this time vs 90 or 120 in the past. Saw three bull gators. One active female nesting. Several baby gators at a nest where the female wasn't visible. Captain Dale is the best. Whether local or... More

90 minutes tour. Saw a few adult gators, numerous babies, several varieties of birds mostly in flight. Guide appeared knowledgeable. No other animals. No guarantee of what you will see. Pretty scenery.

Our family chose to participate in this tour on a break day from the parks. Everything about the tour was enjoyable. The boat holds up to six people. Our family of four had its own tour. You are provided ear protection that also allows everyone to communicate with each other. Captain Dale was fantastic. He was able to tell us... More

Our airboat ride with Captain Dale was a truly memorable experience! We knew we were in good hands upon hearing of his upbringing in the area and years growing up driving boats. His level of knowledge was impressive! The ride alone was a blast, but then seeing least 6 alligators of all sizes up close plus birds and turtles was... More

We had a great time! Captain Dale was so nice and informative. We took the two hour tour and really enjoyed it. Lots of gaters and great ride. Loved the wide variety of birds! Thanks

A friend of mine who lives in Orlando recommended I take an airboat tour during my vacation. So we (my wife, myself, and 15-yr old daughter) took a 90-minute tour with Spirit of the Swamp on Friday, April 14. We had a great time! Once we found the place, I went in to the little building to check in and... More

We had never thought of doing this before, and found out what we were missing! An excellent way to see Florida wildlife on a smooth ride with a very knowledgeable Captain Dale. He explained everything about the lake and the area, as well as the critters in the water and in the air. Along with the guy who helped get... More

When we first pulled up, we weren't sure it was the right place. There's a little wooden hut and a small play area...we were sceptical. However this was one of our favourite things to do on our first trip to Orlando. We had a boat to ourselves and our 11 and 14 year olds raved about the whole thing...speeding across... More
