While most of these Everglade tours just drive you around on an airboat, these guys really take you deep inside and turn off the boats and let you watch nature happen. We saw racoons, heron, osprey & lots of little alligator babies. The guides do interact with the large gators. However, this is Miccosukee land and all guides are members... More

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! This drive is about an hour or so from Miami and is off the beaten path. Goodbye civilized life and hello swamp and one-lane highways. This change of... More

What an awesome adventure. My husband and I always try to do something adventurous wherever we travel to. Our weekend in Miami was for a friends wedding but we couldn't let this Tour get by us. We read all the TripAdvisor reviews on various airboat trips and by far Buffalo Tigers had the best reviews and they're all right. Reasonably... More

We were recommended this from a friend, and went with great expectations, however the famous florida weather intervened, and it rained heavily throughout the morning we travelled to the ride. On arrival, we were booked in, and allowed to go early for a private tour. TIP, if there are 4 of you, it only costs an extra $10 to do... More

We took an air boat tour the last weekend in September. Arrived early in the morning and had a short wait for the tour. We were the only ones on the tour. The guide was exceptionally friendly and very knowledgeable. Took us to areas where he knew there would be alligators. In a typical tourist fashion, he got the alligator... More

My wife and I took the air boast tour and it was ran by Miccosukee family with native Guides who bring you right up to the gators, This isn't a cheesy sideshow its authentic and what I like was the way the tour was done with respect for the wildlife. I recommend you take the standard air boat tour its... More

Buffalo Tiger's airboat tours is one of a number of airboat tour spots west of Miami. I chose this tour even though it's a bit further out than the others based on TripAdvisor's ratings. On my boat was myself & 1 other family, it was almost like a private tour. We cruised around the everglades on the airboat, stopped to... More

This is an hour long tour and a really enjoyable trip. Our guide was Randy and he really made the experience. The tour is very much about education as well as the actual ride and you certainly get up close and personal with the wild gators. Granted, there may well be an element of staging in terms of the guides... More

Great air boat ride by very informative guides. Knew exactly where to stop to locate the gators who came right up to the side of the airboat. Guide plays and feeds the gators so that all on board has a great view , then taken to a small island to see how the native Indians lived and again great information... More

This was the BEST experience. A small airboat within expert guide we experienced everglades wildlife up close and personal! Birds, turtles, alligators all within touching distance. I have done other airboat tours before but this was truly a great one. Highly, highly recommended!
