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!

Andy and Captain Flame were great hosts. Although it was 98 degrees outside, the ride was so pleasant with the constant breeze. The scenery was beautiful on the Kissimmee river and Lake Kissimmee. We saw three bald eagles, many herons, sand cranes, and cows. We drove through lilly pads and grasses. It was so much fun! Thank you Andy and... More

Booked with family - so had two boats out with Captain Andy and Captain Flame. Both have tons of experience and knowledge of the local area, the waters, issues affecting the area, and just all-around great guys. You'll arrive early, check in, get your lifevests, and get a bit of prep. Then it's off on the boat.. a short no-wake... More

Visited today with my 19 year old son, and picked this company because of trip advisor reviews. It was everything I'd hoped for and more. This sure SEEMS like authentic Florida , with the tour located in the middle of a fishing camp. Loved the feeling I got when I spoke with the folks by phone and when I drove... More
