To see so many animals in their natural habitat is amazing. We were not expecting the quantity and variety of all we saw--magestic eagles, a variety of Florida water birds, gators of all sizes (Captain Flame knew where to find the babies), even cows basking the the fields in the sun. We took our 4 1/2 year old grandsons, and... More

Captain Andy made the experience an outstanding one. My girls had perma grin the entire time. We literally saw 20 + gators, a large brown water snake, a nesting sandhill crane with two eggs, wild turkeys and free range cattle. We had lunch at Rosie's Food Shack next door to Alligator Cove before our ride and the food was killer.... More

We saw lots of alligators and beautiful birds on our tour. Captain flame is great at spotting alligators and he takes you into areas of the lake you didn't even know were there. It was a very enjoyable ride with lots of exciting animals to see. The staff is very friendly and helpful and make for a great team.

My husband and I had an excellent time. Airboat ride was supposed to last 1.5 hrs and it was 1.45. You certainly get your monies worth!! Looking forward to going again.

Went with 4 other family members on an hour long airboat ride. Saw tons of alligators, eagles, sandhill cranes, cattle, and other wildlife. Our guide was knowledgeable, entertaining, and gave us a great tour! We got a great picture of our group as well. Would definitely recommend to others!

We first did this tour with 2 other adults and absolutely loved it. The staff and our Capt. Flame were fantastic. We saw lots of alligators and birds and had a blast racing through the water and plants and mud. Both couples had family coming down the next 2 weeks and we each took our families and they couldn't have... More
