We had such an amazing time at Alligator Cove on our air-boat tour with Captain Flame that we still can't stop talking about it. The views were spectacular and we spent most of the tour as wide-eyed tourists so I missed a lot of great pictures. First, the place is easy to find using GPS. We arrived 15 minutes early,... More

Thanks for the visit and traveling on a cold day. Most folks don't realize Florida does have seasons like the rest of the states and Dec. is our coldest usually. Stop back for a visit anytime you are in the neighborhood. More

A fabulous trip through the marshlands of Kissimmee. We saw so much wildlife and the marvels of nature. We even saw a 12-foot alligator. A great ride! We've already recommended it to our neighbors and we expect to go back sometime again in the future. Highly recommend it!
