Alligator Tours

When you take a trip on one of Grape Hammock Fish Camp’s alligator tours, you might catch gators wading in the water, sunbathing on the shore, sneaking up on a meal, or hatching from their shells. Besides gators, you could cruise past all sorts of native, endangered, and exotic creatures on your Central Florida airboat ride, including:

  • Birds
  • Deer
  • Hogs
  • Turtles
  • Toads
  • Snakes


Where Are Our Alligator Tours Located?

Because our airboat rides start from the south end of Lake Kissimmee, we have easy access to the headwaters of the Florida Everglades. This part of the state’s wetlands is ideal for gators during the mating, breeding, dry, and wet seasons.  

When’s the Best Time to See Gators on the Tours?

Zipping and zooming through the swampy, warm marshlands, our USCG Captains take every airboat tour in Central Florida to the best gator spots in the Glades. Depending on the time of day, your guide will pinpoint the best places to glide along the water. That’s because alligators gather in different areas depending on how early, late, hot, or cold it is.

Who Leads Our Central Florida Alligator Tours?

Our USCG Captains lead each and every alligator tour at Grape Hammock. Captain Kevin and Captain Barrett, Florida natives and locals to the area, have experience, education, and training that helps them provide the most unique airboat experience to everyone on board.

What Else Do You Need to Know About the Tours?

  • Tour Length: Our alligator tours run roughly one hour, giving you more than enough time to cruise through the Glades and get to know the local land.
  • Tour Noise: To block out noise from the airboat engine and make it easier to communicate on the tour, we supply microphone headsets to every person on board.
  • Tour Gear: Wear whatever is most comfortable for you on the ride. We recommend bringing along some extra sun protection, a lightweight jacket, and a camera.
  • Tour Dates: You can hop on a tour any day during the season. And during the rest of the year, our alligator tours are available six days a week.
