We did the airboat tour today and it was fun! This was the first time on an airboat for us. We had a great guide (Captain Flame), saw several gators and the most beautiful birds (including several majestic Bald Eagles) - Florida wildlife at its finest.

Never done this before and it was everything we hoped for. Great value, very informative and we saw loads of alligators ( Monster Bob amongst them! ) Captain Darald was full of facts about the wildlife and delivered it in a witty style. We would love to do this again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to others.

We recently moved to Florida for retirement. This past weekend our granddaughter (23) and boyfriend were visiting. None of us had ever been on an airboat. Darold was a great guide. Saw plenty of wildlife including alligators. Will definitely do this again! Better than expected.

Captain Flare was equal amounts of fun and information. Riding on a airboat is a very smooth ride and at times looks as though you are riding over land, the vegetation is so thick. Saw lots of alligators, a bald eagle and many birds!

We decided to take our children (10, 7, 4) on a real life Alligator tour while vacationing in Florida this February. We were so happy to have stumbled upon Alligator Cove, on TripAdvisor. We wanted something that wasn't commercialized. We wanted a real life tour & boy did we get one. Captain Darald was more then amazing! From the moment... More

This was probably one of the coolest things I've ever done. The airboat itself was fun but Captain Darald was super informative & funny. You not only drive past the alligators, you are given interesting facts, & have all your questions answered. We saw plenty of birds including a couple bald eagles as well as being informed about the plants... More
