Having looked through the reviews of various Airboat tours available, we choose this one. I travelled with my husband and daughter, who is working out in Florida this winter. We wanted to experience the wildlife, not visit a commercial centre. We choose right! Eric was our tour guide and driver of the boat. He has in depth knowledge of the... More

I took a private tour for two. Ernie was our guide and he was extremely knowledgeable, informative and skilled with the gators.He was also very friendly. He made me want to learn more about his tribe. I honestly don't know how this could of been any better. We saw many gators. Right up to the boat and testing my comfort... More

What a fantastic experience! We had passed many other air boat tours showcasing alligator shows and other touristy things and were we glad we passed them all! Seriously, the level of knowledge of the land and animals is just amazing from the Miccosukee tribe. Our guide Eric was extremely knowledgeable and excellent with alligator demonstrations. On top of a wonderful... More

My wife and I decided to take this tour based on other Trip Advisor reviews. We were on the booat within 15 minutes of arrival and were piloted by Ernie. Ernie showed us several gators during the tour and was genuinely knowledgeable about the animals. He demonstrated his skill with the animals by getting the gators up close to the... More

Why did I chose this? Because there were no spectacular alligator wrestling, just plain nature and meeting the alligators in their natural habitat. The airboat tour was fantastic and our guide just knew his area. He brought us around and was very informative about the alligators and how they lived. We saw at least 25-30 alligators on the tour and... More

Although, at first glance the facilities looked bare bones, the tour that the guide provided was amazing. Not only did we see gators, and other wild life in the Everglades, we were given the honor of touring Buffalo Tiger's settlement area. While no longer functioning and the community has moved on...it is really something to think about. Our young guide... More

Arrived at noon, and we were on the water within 10 minutes after gearing up with ear protection. We saw three big male alligators up close, Buckey, Notch Tail and No Tail, ranging from 7 to 12 feet, 300-500 lbs, and a small female at the Indian Village. The company we chose initially was Buffalo Tiger, but their partner firm... More

We saw some gators up close, and our guide Ernie was nice and informative. The airboat ride was definitely an interesting experience. Price of $27.50 was reasonable, while not the cheapest, it was not on the expensive end either. The price was reasonable for the value of the experience.
