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.

Our guide provided us interesting information as well as some fascinating interaction with several alligators. He thoughtfully alternated between alligator encounters on the left and right side of the boat so everybody got to see. Their airboats seem to be made on a couple of different sizes. Ours had four of five benches, each holding four or five passengers. We... More

We reserved a boat for a private tour. Cost is more but what a trip! The ride itself was a thrill. Big gators, baby gators, birds riding on gators. Ernie, our driver/guide is the best. Many thanks.

An absolutely amazing experience. Randy our guide was so friendly & knowledgeable. I feel you get so much more of an experience with this company than many we passed enroute - they looked so commercialised whereas it was great to learn about the different tribes during the trip & no pressure selling in the gift shop afterwards !! Would definitely... More

4 of us went on the airboat ride at Buffalo Tigers and our guide was Ernie, who was just amazing. He got us up close and personal with many alligators, even went to a nest of babies and we even got to touch a young gator. Saw large turtles and many birds. We made a stop at a little island... More
