This is fun for the whole family. Andy was our guide and he was very nice and knowledgeable about the area and was able to answer all of our questions about the wildlife. Definitely recommend!

Our Spirit of The Swamp Tour was amazing! I was expecting to just hopefully see some alligators, but the The scenery was breath taking. Captain Andy was awesome, and answered all of the many questions we had. He knew all the right spots for us to see baby alligators as well as 3 full grown ones! We were only 5 feet away from a big mama! We also saw an alligator nest being guarded by one of those big mamas! Riding the airboat was tons of fun. We were sometimes in water less than 1 foot deep and had no problems Having the headphones with the microphone was great so we could easily communicate with Andy and the rest of our party. I liked that even with a small group of 4 we were guaranteed our own boat for a private tour. If you can afford it, go on the longer ride, alligators don't appear on schedule like at Disney World, and being on the swamp for a longer amount of time will increase your chances of seeing one. We went for the 90 minute tour. Captain Andy was very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Saw 1 frog and a couple turtles and interesting birds as well. Was the perfect break from all the Disney Theme parks. Highly recommended!

This was exactly what we were looking for. It was not "kitsch", but a genuine experience in nature with parents and 3 adult children. The business is well and efficiently run in lovely surroundings.

There were 4 people in our party. I was looking for something unique to do on our weekend and thought of airboats. I have grown up around them, but the others in my party were from up North and have never gone on them. We had such a wonderful time. Our age range is 18 to 29. All of us had a great time. Our Captain (Steve Taylor) was fantastic. He really kept us excited and showed us quite a few gators, snakes and other wildlife. The weather was perfect!! I would highly recommend Spirit of the Swamp!

My family and I booked the hour long air boat trip and were delighted by the experience. It was fun and exciting and we were actually out for about 10 minutes over the allotted time.

Captain Taylor was an excellent guide!

We would recommend this as it was excellent value for money
