Excellent tour! Captain Flame was very knowledgeable and professional. We are from Florida and were still amazed at the beauty witnessed on our morning tour. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because it was a little pricey ($220 + tip) for a family of four, also we were grouped with another couple, which is no fault... More

For the fmaily members who were visiting they had a great first time airboat experience. My husband and I had been on the lake several time both in a pontoon and an airboat and still enjoyed seeing areas of the lake we had never seen before. Great day!!!

Captain Flame gave us the best first time airboat ride we could ask for. Found us some alligators at a tough time of year. Definitely going again next time we're in Florida.

We had a great trip with Captain Flame, 6 adults and 2 children took the 1 hour trip and saw all the beauty of this part of Florida, as we were 4 different parts of the family they supplied 4 mounted photos of us all with the Captain on the boat as a great souvenir. Great fun and highly recommended,... More

We camped at Lake Kissimmee State Park and found Alligator Cove Airboats tour on trip advisor, this is so much more fun than any words can describe, Captain Andy is very knowledgeable of local history, a safe boat operator and you can tell he loves what he does. We had a great time, still sporting smiles, thank you Captain Andy... More
