We recently went on a 90 minute airboat tour with Captain Flame. This was our fist ever airboat tour and it was a blast! When we arrived we were greeted by Captain Andy and he got us all checked in and taken care of. While we were waiting, there was a baby alligator in the water! We thought it was... More

We recently took an air boat tour with Captain Flame and it was by far the best of any we have had in various parts of Florida. You could not ask for a nicer, more accommodating, well informed Captain. He was awesome. We saw deer, gators, lots of bald eagles, and every bird from the area. This is a must... More

Captain Flame greeted us all with cheeky humour, which was brilliant. We had a 90 minute airboat tour of the swamps and Lake Kissemmee and what an experience. Bald Eagles, alligators (which are not usually found in July due to the heat) and so much more. It was so good to experience the uncommercial side of Florida, so rural and... More

Went this morning with my husband, grandparents, dad, sister, and my 3-year niece. Everyone loved it! My niece smiled the entire time. Great combination of beautiful scenery, wildlife viewing, and a fun boat ride. Sometimes these types of things end up kitschy, too touristy, or too much about spinning around, but we couldn't be happier we choose this company. Captain... More

Visited today, and Captain Flame was our host, and what a brilliant guy he is! Alligator Cove is a family run business and has been for a very long time. Our welcome was enormous, and the area is of outstanding rural Florida, totally took our breath away. We chose the 90 minute airboat tour with the advice from Candy, it... More

Having visited Florida from the UK on a number of occasions, taking an Airboat tour of the Everglades was on top of my to do list. Chose Alligator Cove because of (a) location 25 miles south of where we were staying (just outside Haines City); and (b) the consistent and excellent reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. I... More

They made riding an airboat for the first time was a great experience. My grandsons and I could have stayed for more than an hour because we had so much fun. Flash the driver was kind enough to turn around so I could get pictures of the water lilies. My grandsons were so excited about their first boat ride and... More

We took the hour and 1/2 trip and loved every minute of it! Go early in the morning before it gets hot. We went at 9:30am and it was perfect. Our guide was very knowledgeable of the area as he grew up there and it was so interesting to learn of the area. Even this early in the morning in... More

The folks at Alligator Cove were super friendly, personable and helpful. We saw many types of birds, plant life, cattle and of course- alligators! Definitely go back for another adventure!
