We passed at least 1/2 dozen Airboat tours/Alligator things to get here and it was so worth it. Both our Airboat guide and Alligator wrestler were native Miccosukees and you could tell they enjoyed talking about their heritage. The alligator wrestler was actually respectful in a weird way to the alligators. The alligators were active and looked well taken care... More

They offered us freshly baked pumkin bread explain the history , the carving and painting of various crafts , saw an alligator show and shot some arrows. I was amazed to hear their language and how it is still... More

When we came to the village I was reluctant to pay the $10 to enter the village. I was afraid it was a rip off. There weren't many people working on their crafts but we did see a woodcarver, jewelry maker, and a woman making Indian fry bread. There are samples of the bread and the pumpkin fry bread is... More

The airboat ride was well worth the $16 per person charge. We were able to see alligators and quite a few birds as well as a replica of a Miccosukee village.

I was staying with friends for a long weekend vacation in the Fort Lauderdale area of Florida and after a couple of days of beach bumming, we decided to have a little adventure. We drove out to the Miccosukee Village, because we heard they do gator shows there, and it wasn't something any of us had ever seen before. It... More

With dozens of air boat rides in the area, we had a hard time deciding which to do. The Miccosukee one came with a tour of a native village and alligator show. Our air boat guide was excellent: he gave a thrilling ride and pointed out the variety of wild life. He also shared his unique philosophy. We stopped at... More

We had a family of 10 and had an awesome time on the river boat. Our guide, Elvis, was super nice and very knowledgable about the alligators and their habitats. He was also extremely brave and got up close and personal with the alligators for us to experience. Overall spectacular river boating adventure.

I took my family from abroad to this place to see the village, I had never been before myself and thought it would be interesting. There were no cars outside when we got there and I should have taken the hint. It's $10 per person to get in and it includes a tour of the village and an alligator show.... More

We were vacationing in Florida and unable to visit the Everglades because of the Government shutdown, so we drove to the Miccosukee reservation on US 41 (aka The Tamiami Trail) and purchased a ride on one of their air boats. It was early afternoon and we were the only passengers. We left the dock and the first 15 minutes were... More
