Flame was our airboat captain and not only was he knowledgeable of Lake Wales he also handled the airboat mighty fine. We saw Alligator(s) up close and they saw us and moved pretty quickly away from us. All was FUN! Lake Wales is a beautiful lake for just an airboat ride as we saw many species of birds and water...

I brought a group of 16 here when visiting Orlando filming for the Hack to Jack Golf Reality Show and it was the highlight of the trip. Captain Andy was a great guide and loved learning about the local history. Everyone loved the airboat ride and seeing the wildlife and alligators. Can't wait to go back!

We had a great time at Alligator Cove Airboat tours. Captain Andy was very friendly, knowledgable, funny, patient and showed us all over the place. He is a top-notch driver and provided a one-of-a-kind experience. I would definitely go again and recommend this to friends and family! Thanks Captain Andy for an _OUTSTANDING_ experience. (Hopefully we can build a golf... More

During our week in Florida, we visited many tourist attractions, but deciding to visit Alligator Cove was definitely one of our best decisions. We had two adults, two teens (16 and 19), and two younger children (6 and 8) and everyone was thrilled with their experience. We went on a cold, windy day with minimal sunlight [a time when Alligators... More

Alligator Cove Airboat Rides is my favourite outing in Florida. The Captains are knowledgeable and friendly. We had Captain Flame on Friday and really enjoyed the experience. We saw birds, alligators, and cows. The waterways are beautiful and the airboat is fun to ride in. A great place to take visitors.

Just got back from a trip with them. Got to see eagles, alligators, "wild cows", raptors, tons of other birds and lots of beautiful scenery.

We had a fabulous ride & enjoyed seeing birds, nature & alligators! Captain Flame and Andy are great! Captain Flame was our driver and he made the ride fun and was very respectful with our elderly family member's needs. I would highly recommend Alligator Cove!

Love Airboat rides and this one was the best. Not treated like a number! Not a pre rehearsed speech and tour. Captain grew up on these area waters and knows where to go on any given day. Trips are personalized depending on the time of year and time of day. My friend saw gators in their natural environment for the... More

Very enjoyable as well as educational. We had 2 grandkids with us, ages 14 and 11 and they loved it. We saw gators, birds and beautiful Cyprus swamps. Captain Andy was friendly, informative and made us feel comfortable and safe. I would recommend the 2 hour ride for everyone, of any age. The photos, included with your ride, are a... More
