This family owned business was a wonderful experience. I have taken other airboat rides, but with larger groups. This company uses a 6 passenger boat with a great guide, getting into marsh land areas larger boats cannot go. As advertised, NO houses, completely natural surroundings. Lots of wild life, including eagles and wild livestock brought here by Ponce De Leon.... More

The airboat ride with Alligator Cove and Captain Flame exceeded our expectations. The staff was always courteous whether we were on the phone or in person. Our group of 6 included 3 younger children (8, 6, 3) and the staff were genuine and sweet with them. Captaim Flame took time to explain the different animals, plants and talk about the... More

Seeing the incredible reviews for this place left us all with high expectations....and I have to say it was as good as we'd hoped. Saw a whole load of alligators and other wildlife and it was a perfect balance of wildlife, picturesque surroundings and of course high speed for the kids! Probably the best $50 we've spent in Florida! An... More

What a great time. Lots of wildlife to see and Captain Flame gave us a great boat ride. Going again in June. One of the best things to do in Florida.

We visited Alligator Cove in late April 2015. We had such a great time! It was the highlight of our Florida trip (even above Disney). Captain Flame was a blast. He really personalized our tour and was a genuinely nice guy. This experience is worth every penny. Even our three-year-old remained engaged in the entire experience. Not only have we... More
