A magic experience of a lifetime it was. Thanks to Captain Worm we had a great tour exploring the Everglades on the airboat. He took the time to explain and check out the spots. Plenty of wildlife, alligators, birds, wild cows and even a bold eagle. And promise is promise, you are part of the Everglades....Don't forget to film, as... More

The drive from Orlando was well worth it to experience this wonderful trip! Captain Flame did an awesome job keeping everyone on the boat engaged and entertained. We saw many alligators and some other wildlife during our ride. This trip turned out to be the highlight of our entire trip for my family. I also appreciated the fact that they... More

I've been on 4 airboat rides before this trip, but this ride with Darald is right at the top . He was entertaining, a great teacher, he obviously loves the land and the swamp and he knows how to find alligators! The hour and a half went by much too quickly, but we will take away new knowledge and a... More

This was our second trip to the Orlando area and we had planned to go back to the airboat tour we took last year. But then friends told us how great Alligator Cove was, and boy, were they right! This trip was twice as long and Captain Darold was amazing! We learned so much more on this tour, and saw... More

Toured with Captain Darald and true to his word he neither lied to us nor hit a tree today!!! ;-) Very informative, very engaging and very entertaining. Certainly worth the money and we will be back again with more family to do this all over again.

It was a little cold, but the ride was perfect. Smooth driver! The lake looked like a post card, and there was plenty of wildlife to see. Highly recommend!

The tour with Alligator Cove was just "Awesome". We arrived early and was promptly greeted by the owner. He was very friendly and informative. He took the time to explain the area and how the tour works. We had Captain Flame as our guide, he also was super friendly and informative. He did a great job on the boat and... More

Captain Flame was very informative about anything we asked and our first airboat experience made us want to come back again. We never felt uncomfortable. We saw over a dozen gators and lots of birds. He always stopped the boat when we had a chance to see a gator up close. Can't go wrong here. Andy runs a good business.
