We went to Kissimmee for Disney but everyone (including the kids) said next year we should skip Disney and do 2 days of the air boats at Alligator Cove. We had a blast! Thanks again Captain Flame and Captain Darold. We'll see you next year!

First time on an airboat and it was a wonderful ride! Captain Flame gave us a great tour. We saw numerous types of birds, lost track of the number of alligators we saw, and other various animals. It was a lot of fun!

Captain Darald knew everything about the area and the history of the animals. The views from the boat were awesome with plenty of wildlife, including the gators.

I think this adventure is geared more for school age kiddos. My grandkids are 6 and 9 years of age and I know they would love it.
