Went there with the family today. Always wanted to do the air boat thing and happy i chose Buffalo Tiger. After a wait of around 10 minutes our party of 4 joined 2 other similar sized families. Ernie was our guide and he really knew his story. He gave us a good ride, swirling through the marshes before stopping to... More

Booked Buffalo Tiger Airboat for a family of 8 with four generations. All had a great time. Hearing protection was provided. Randy, our driver and guide, is a great young man who has a real passion for the outdoors. Randy explained many things about the aligators and the natural habitat.

My wife and I took our 13 & 7 year old girls on this tour. Drove 8 miles off the main highway on a paved road to tour point. Passed many tours along the way. Really glad we went with this tour. The other tour boats had at least 15 people/boat. Ernie took us along with 4 other people on... More

One of the best tours of the Everglades! No qeues or lines, no gimmicks, no tour buses, no crowding everyone on every seat on the airboats. We called to make sure we could mske reservations, not sure of what to expect when arrival. They gave us a discount for a party of 7. When we arrived, the parking lot had... More

As a Miami local, I've been on a few of the other air boat tours in the area. This is definitely the one to go on, the others seem more touristy and gimmicky, where as these guys seem more in tune with the wildlife (being as it's run by actual Miccosukee). . There's a reason they've been rated so high... More

The best tour guides give you an up close and personal tour of the Everglades where you get a lot closer to the alligators than at the other places. I've been here many many times with different out of town guests over the years and it never gets old.

We are staying in Islamorada but had to go back into Miami for something else and decided to take a tour. Well, it was actually something I really wanted to do but my husband went along with it. We're so glad we did!! I read a bunch of reviews on this place and others before deciding on Buffalo Tiger. This... More

We just got back from a trip to Key West. Our very first stop was to Buffalo Tiger Airboat Rides. We got a warm welcome from the staff and clear instructions about the ride and what to expect. There were the two of us plus another party of two on our boat. They give you noise reducing head phones to... More

This is our third airboat tour experience. Each time a different company and truly Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours is by far the best experience we had. The tour is not just an airboat tour to search alligator it's a journey of the native american culture and a most complete tour of the wildlife in this indian reservate in the Everglades.... More

There are many airboat ride companies on the everglades so I was concerned about which one to choose, what is the difference between one and another? I looked around on line a lot before deciding on this airboat operator and after going; I don’t think any of the others could offer a better experience. This airboat company is owned and... More
