Good choice for airboat rides in the Everglades

It's a good airboat experience, actually better than the others I've had in other places. Don't forget to bring a hat and also some sunscreen. The staff is friendly and they make sure to take you to good spots. They also have a little "island" where there's a little miccosukee and they explain what they used to do here. Whenever... More

Because of low water levels our tour was only half an hour, but we still had a great time, and saw lots of alligators, both large ones and a "swarm" of baby-alligators. Our guide was both very knowledgable and entertaining.

We have visited Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours twice. Our first visit was April 2014. During this visit we had a life changing experience. Crazy as it may sound, we truly felt God's presence in the middle of the everglades as we witnessed our guide, Ernie, interact with alligators and other wildlife of the everglades. Ernie's gentle tone and respect for... More

This was the second time I had visited the Everglades. The first time I enjoyed a fast airboat ride through the glades but didint see many gators. This time we had the kids with us and they weren't keen on a 'scary' airboat ride. Turns out this trip hit the spot. No scary manoeuvres and we saw loads of gators... More

This was a great activity for the whole family. We had a great guide which was very knowledgable. He told us many interesting things about both alligators and indians. The kids loved watching the alligators. This was a day to remember. Thank you Buffalo Tiger's, for a great boat ride!

Lifelong wish granted! I have been obsessed with wanting to be on an airboat and see alligators except being from California there is not many options to be able to do this! My other half had a sneaky plan up his sleeve when we drove out here after coming back from the Caribbean. This drive is about an hour or... More

14 of us, age ranges from 3 to 70, loved the guides, Betty and Fabian, and the experience. It was very real - not commercial.

Best air boat trip ever! Our family of five enjoyed an amazing tour with knowledgeable tour guide Fabian. The air boats are of smaller size and therefore get very near the alligators. On this tour there was only our family and an other family of four, so it was easy even for the children to see all the alligators and... More
