Top Airboat Tours in Central Florida

Here in Central Florida, we know a thing or two about airboating. With over 550 lakes throughout Polk County, there’s plenty of wonderful wildlife and natural beauty to be seen. And what better way to experience that than on an airboat tour!

Alligator Cove Airboat Tours

Take an exciting 2-hour airboat ride with Captain Andy of Alligator Cove Tours in Lake Wales. During your tour, you’ll glide across the Kissimmee Basin and see Mother Nature at her finest. You won’t be passing by large houses or loud party boats because this is a very rural part of Central Florida. Many people lovingly refer to it as Old Florida. When you explore the wetlands, you’ll get to see see small and large alligators, Limpkins, American Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons and more.

Captain Andy is an excellent narrator, so you’ll learn a lot during your tour. He can accommodate small groups or your entire family, just let him know who’s coming when you book.

Alligator Cove Tours is located at Camp Mack, a Guy Harvey Lodge, Marina & RV Resort, but you don’t have to be a guest at Camp Mack to book a tour.
