We visited on 1/15/2017, with family. We had a large group & they were very accommodating for our group. The staff was very friendly. We saw bald eagles, cows, and LOTS (22, to be exact) alligators. I am attaching a photo of Bob the alligator. Captain Darald was great, very knowledgeable and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour. Our group... More

My family visited Alligator Cove today and it was so much for all of the kids!! Including a 17 yr old, two elementary age and one toddler. They all had a blast looking for all the alligators (including Bob) Captain Darald made it an amazing experience for everyone. Definitely visiting again!

We were looking for a family adventure that would include some fun, outdoor time and education for the entire family. This hit the mark 100%, our guide was fabulous and knowledgeable. He ensured the little ones 6 and 3, saw the wildlife, took time to explain the eco system and why the cows aren't afraid of the alligators! It was... More

I've been on a few airboat tours, and this was the best so far. A few acrobatics, a half dozen or so gators, and Captain Andy teaching us a lot about the history, nature, and ecology of the area. Tours were even available on New Years day (we were visiting my Dad in Lake Wales over the holiday.)

We will schedule air boat rides again when we have visitors. Our experience was wonderful and Captain Flame is awesome and we'll ask for him on our next ride.

WOW! This trip was so fun and my whole family enjoyed it. I am the youngest one in the family and still had a blast! Captain Derald even gave me one of the giant snail shells we saw. We spotted 8 gators and some of the gators we saw had their entire bodies out of the water! It was an... More

This excursion was by far the highlight of our family trip. We booked for 6 people; my husband and I, our 2 boys ages 9 & 11 and their grandparents. It was exciting and fun for everyone at a reasonable cost. Captain Andy was a terrific guide, he was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna and extremely patient so... More

We had a great time with Captain Derald. Our children were ages 8, 9 and 12 and they couldn't stop talking about the adventure we had searching for Monster Bob. Captain Derald was full of knowledge and captivated our daughter Chayse to great length. We are looking forward to our next trip to Alligator Cove.

Captain Flame was great. He educated us but in a fun way. I have never been on a tour like this and felt very safe. You do have to be fast to see gators but he tries to get the best shot for your camera. Remember you ARE in a natural setting.the price was reasonable for the good time we... More
