First ever airboat tour and I wasn't disappointed. Facilities are minimal, located on the Miccosukee reservation, so no AC and only port-a-johns if you need to relieve yourself, but the tour itself was great! Our skipper knew each alligator and got them right up next to the boat, very knowledgable about the species in the local area. He took us... More

This is a thing you want to do just once but if you are in or close to the Everglades how can you not do this. The best time to do this early in the morning or late afternoon as the animals hide when the Sun gets high up in the sky. Whatever you do do not eat at their... More

Our guide was very skilled in knowing where a to find wildlife in the everglades. We saw and interacted with several alligators, saw several different species of birds, turtles lizards etc. Too much to list. Bring your camera and video.

THIS is why I like Trip Advisor.... We wanted to schedule an airboat tour in the Everglades and I looked to Trip Advisor for some comments posted for various operators. I decided to chose Buffalo Tiger's. We were not disappointed. On the car ride out, we passed some larger tour operators whose setting looked more refined and other tour operators... More

We loved our Buffalo Tiger Airboat Tour. A Gator met us at the boat as we loaded on so we got pretty satisfied right there. The ride itself was fun and safe. We loved riding through the Sea of Grass. We stopped a couple of times to visit with gators-three or four baby gators were hanging near a nesting sight... More

Some added history abt the tribe and native plants that u might not get at other boat tours. Very awesome experience. The feeding gators was truly amazing. Highly recommend for anyone who can physically get in and out of a boat.

We were very lucky to have Fabian on our airboat. He was friendly, interesting and knew how to talk to the alligators! We saw several alligators, Fabian was feeding them, some came right up to the boat and we have some amazing photographs of the experience, even inside the alligator's mouth. When we went onto the island, a couple of... More
