This is my second time using Buffalo Tiger's Airboat. It is a great one-hour excursion in the Everglades. I was disappointed that they relocated the raccoons from the island which was fun to see. Saw numerous alligators on the tour.

There are quite a number of businesses in the area offering air boat tours, with a number including things like alligator wrestling too (apparently they "cool" the 'gators first to slow them up). We chose this one on the basis of recommendation and reviews for our party of 6 including 4 children. There are no gimmicks, no wrestling and I... More

I had never been on an airboat and have to recommend that everybody tries this. One of our party doesn't do well with water and she really enjoyed it too. The water was fairly low so unfortunately we were not able to visit the reserve as the airboat would have got in but not back out again - the tours... More

Did my research and checked reviews on tripadvisor. Glad I did, this is less commercialised as some of tHe other places we looked at and passed. There were 3 families on our tour so 7 people in all so it felt that you got closure to nature. We came across 5 adult gators and a group of baby alligators. One... More

We had a 30 min ride - it was perfect. Saw baby, mid sized and large alligators as well as a hawk and some other birds. Our guide was well informed, engaging and clearly knows the alligators. In the heat and sun I don't think I would want a longer ride. This was a great value and just what we... More

This was fantastic! We went as a group of 5 adults and 2 kids and had a great time. The driver was very knowledgable and courteous and always asked if it was ok to bring the alligators close to the boat, in case anyone was too scared. It only cost $20 each for a thirty minute trip. The water is... More

This tour was very cool! I have lived in Miami my entire life and went on an airboat ride as a child. I had family visiting from California and decided to bring them to the wild side of Florida! I used TripAdvisor to find a good tour and was delighted to have visited Buffalo Tiger's! Everyone was very kind and... More

We drove past this on the way back from Shark Valley and decided to stop. Water was low, so tours were only 30 mins, but that was enough to see plenty of wildlife, including the alligators really close up. Eric was a great guide and we loved this.

The alligators come up to the boat to your absolute amazement! This happens AFTER your guide CALLS them to the boat using "alligator calls". AMAZING! Our tour guide, Ernie, made this experience incredibly special. He was amazingly knowledgeable, personable, and down-to-earth. Ernie reacted professionally to our questions as well as situations that were unpredictable. I asked about an unusually large... More

We went on a 30-minutes airboat trip today which was absolutely great. Our guide was very friendly and told us a lot about the surrounding nature. We saw alligators, a turtle and many birds and even a mother alligator with her babies. The trip lasted only 30 minutes due to the low water levels in the everglades in August and... More
