  • Captain Dale was awesome! This was our first airboat ride and we are so glad that we had Captain Dale. If you’re ever in the area take the 90 minute ride to see a different side of Florida  more »

  • What an experience. We did the 90 minute tour, it simply gives you more opportunity to see aquatic wildlife and scenery. The company is well run and organized. Our Captain (Dale) was experienced, knowledgeable and wanted nothing more than to keep you safe and informed at all times. Being from Canada this is something you don't get an opportunity to see daily. All seats are good, communication system was first rate and photo opportunities are abundant. Well done.
  • We chose Spirit of the Swamp for our airboat tour because the boats that they use are smaller, which allows for a more personalized tour as well as because they give each passenger a headset so that you can communicate easily while on your tour. We were lucky enough to have Captain Dale Thompson as our guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate! Everyone always wants to see gators, which we saw plenty of but I appreciated everything else he showed and taught us even more! Thanks for a memorable experience!
  • I have been on air boat rides before that followed a set route through the marsh and were cool, but Captain Chris knew how to drive that boat to give us more of a thrill ride through the marsh. He was also knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife and knew where the gators were. We saw a couple of 12 footers up close and personal - 10 feet away - also saw week old babies and the mom lurking nearby. We felt totally safe because Chris was not worried. GUARANTEE we take that ride with him again and again. We did the 60 minute, but it went fast. Probably do the 90 minute next time. Bring a cooler with brew if you want. THANK YOU CHRIS!!
  • We spent an amazing hour and a bit, last Monday, being guided by Lynn whose knowledge of the wildlife and surroundings kept us informed but more importantly interested and excited for the duration. The list of bird species we saw seemed endless and the alligators seemed to appear on cue. The highest high point, was the bald eagle in its nest, or it might have been the snail kite, or the alligator with a turtle, or the belted kingfisher, however if you love identifying waterfowl and the thrill of the air boat skimming over the water this is the trip for you!
  • Absolute 5* attraction. Capt Chris gave us a brilliant tour. It was the best ride in Orlando!
