We came from Australia with preconceived ideas and hopes . They were all realised. We booked the day before via email and the communication was excellent. We met the boat next afternoon and within minutes was cruising through wild rushes searching for wildlife. We were not let down. Many alligators both small and large, water moccasin snakes, turtles, otters - that's correct- otters , a number of wild hogs and all manner of bird life including the allusive snail kite. Our guide Harold was a wealth of info and presented with warm and friendly chat. Thank you Harold you were a champion. The ride was simply sensational and I wanted to stay out all day. I would highly recommend the six person tours from spirit of the swamp . It was the highlight of our trip.

We had a great time on the airboat tour and would recommend this to everyone who are interested. We saw a couple of very large gators as well as a hand full of smaller ones. There are also birds and small fishes literally everywhere you look. For me though, a big part of the fun was just riding on the airboat across the headwater of the Florida Everglade. Definitely an experience that I will look back on fondly in the future so certainly well worth the price of the tour.

Notice that some previous reviewers complaint about not seeing larger Gators or not seeing enough wildlife. To this, I would say that this is a nature park so I would think animals tend to want to hide. If all ones want to do is to see animals up close then perhaps a zoo would be a better options. I don't like to see wild animals locked up in cages and would much rather take my chances with spotting them in their natural habitat.

We sent a few emails back and forth to arrange a last minute tour, and this was not a problem with quick responses. Payment over a secure site and we were on our way. Directions supplied by email to get to location from our hotel. We arrived early and captain Blake was more than accommodating and we started early. Captain Blake was amazing, knowledge and enthusiasm was first class. We spotted three alligators a number of eagles and other amazing wildlife. The time went so quickly. I would recommend this tour to anyone, it was a blast and so informative and fun. Well done on a great business and tour knowledge.

Thank you for your review mate! Australians are so much fun to have on the airboat! We agree, Captain Blake is an amazing guide. We know it's a long l flight from Australia, but we sure hope you'll come back to Florida and see us again! Debi
