We started researching airboat tour companies a couple of years ago. I picked Buffalo Tiger's because it seemed to have the "feel" that we wanted. As we drove past some of the bigger, more commercial places, I started worrying that this would be the same. 50 cars in the parking lot, tons of junky tacky decor everywhere, tons of people...then...

We.enjoyed our trip, we had to wait 45 mins but it was a weekend. We got a 45 min tour with stops off to see alligators on both sides of the airboat. They were close enough to touch (if you dared stick your hand out which we were obviously advised not to do). An old Indian village and some exciting... More

Located on the northside of the old tamiami trail, this tour takes you into the Miccosukee Tribe's reservation. This tribe is native to the area, and, until recently, still lived on an island in this section of the Everglades. they still live on the reservation. the respect for the landscape and the flora/fauna is quite evident. our guide, eric, although...

Our guide, Ernie Redwing Jr., was very knowledgeable. He grew up on the reservation in the everglades. He used a clicking sound with his mouth to call the alligators to the air boat. He was able to get numerous alligators to open their jaws wide and describe the mouth. We went on tours with Ernie 2 different times in 10... More

My husband and I did a private tour with Fabian and it was fantastic. Spent over an hour touring the Everglades, seeing alligators and numerous birds and a few turtles. Fabian was very informative about the wildlife and the history of the local Indian tribe. The equipment was in good order, there was no wait, we had to call on... More

We came to this location based on TA reviews. The tickets were $28 per person. The ride was 45 minutes long. It included a few stops to look and discuss the wildlife. There was a stop at a 100 year old settlement. The guide, Fabio, gave lots of info and responded to all of our questions. He even played with... More

We arrived first thing in the morning and did not have to wait more than 10 minutes before our air boat was ready. Ernie was our guide and did an excellent job retelling the history of the Everglades and providing information on the local flora and fauna. We got up close and personal with many alligators which made for great... More
