  • Shane our captain was fantastic. He was very smart about everything in the swamp. He was thoughtful of everyone on the boat to make sure we could all appreciate the wildlife and get good pictures. It's not often you get to see someone that loves their job as much as Shane did and you could definitely tell. Oh and the headsets were definitely nice!
  • I've done an airboat ride in the past, but this experience that I had with Spirit of the Swamp takes the cake! We were in a small group of 4 (2 couples) in a boat that seats about 6. This means we were able to maneuver around the lake much more swiftly and we had great views of the gators! Our captain KEN was extremely knowledgeable about the flora and fauna, knew about the history of the land, and was very personable. He knew the temperaments of the various alligator mamas so we were at a safe distance away while still being very close. One even chomped on the boat! But he knew she wouldn't get on. We did the 1-hour ride on a Sunday, and while their website says they're usually closed Sundays, Ken advised that he volunteers on those days that a lot of interest is shown for tours for the day. The staff is very communicative by email and text, and ensures that we have a the time of our life!
