Our birding group went on one of these tours and had a fantastic time! We saw many special birds including snail kites and crested caracaras! Awesome, close enough to see their beautiful colors and feathers. It was so beautiful out on the water and Captain Andy and his wife Candy couldn't have been more helpful and fun! We saw lots...

I want to personally thank Captain Andy for a wonderful tour. My daughter, Granddaughter, and me had a great trip. I appreciate the time you spent with informing us about the history of the area, the environment, and what old Florida is supposed to look like. You took up a lot of time with us and made my granddaughter feel... More

AWESOME experience. If you are visiting the Orlando area this is a must do excursion. You will love it!!! We were hoping to see a bald eagle on our ride and within a few minutes of leaving the dock we saw one and we saw three more on the rest of the ride. Captain Andy grew up on the river... More

Cannot say enough about this place, living in Orlando you forget about what a beautiful place Florida is and this really puts this in perspective. What really sets this tour apart is Andy's knowledge of the area as grew up there and you can really tell he has a strong connection to it. Learned a great deal not only about... More

Captain Andy provided an excellent tour through a magnificently beautiful part of Florida. He is very knowledgeable and we learned a great deal about the vegetation and animals in the area. I would highly recommend this tour to visitors. It was great fun!!

The airboat tour with Alligator Cove and captain Andy was the highlight of our visit to the US. Even though we just got a few glimpses of the alligators them selves, we saw so many other animals, and it was so cool to slide around in the marshes. The captain knew all about this area, where to go and where... More

Our grandson and son came to visit us. We decided to treat them to an airboat ride. Neither had ever been on one. The trip started on time. No hitches or delays. It was a beautiful day, hot and sunny. This area of Florida is beautiful. An airboat can take you in areas that are inaccessible to other boats. We... More
