I just can't say enough good things about Alligator Cove Airboat Nature Tours! When I looked for something to do around the Lake Wales, Fl. area I had no idea there would be Airboat rides there. How thankful I am that there was and I clicked on their ad. After reading all about what all was provided I gave them... More

We had an awesome time being out on the water and learned so much about alligators and animals native to Florida. Great way to spend an afternoon. Very friendly owner and we loved meeting family pet Bobbi Jo too! We also went home with a complimentary photo of everyone on our boat including Captain Darald!

I had absolutely NO idea what to expect when I heard that we were going to be going on an Airboat tour. I had never been on one before and quite honestly thought that they only happened in the Everglades. Boy was I in for a treat! I had no idea that just a few short miles from town there... More

Captain Darald took us on a very informative and exciting trip which everyone loved whilst Captain Dee made us feel very at home whilst we waited for our trip. The business is situated in a slightly off the beaten... More

This is our second tour with this company. Today we had our son from Manhattan with us. The narration and scenery were outstanding. The guide who is also the operator of this company knows the headwaters of the Florida Everglades well. He provided us with the history of the area and showed us lots of natural things including birds, a... More

This was our second tour. This time I brought two of my daughters. Any trip that can put a smile on the face of a 16 year old girl is well worth the price of admission. The perfect combination of fun and learning for all ages. We look forward to a return visit. - Joe (Annapolis, MD)
