Aside from the boat just being fun to ride, the alligators came very close and plenty of photo opportunities. It was also nice to learn about native life. It felt relaxed and fun, and thrilling all in one trip.

It good to read you had an enjoyable airboat experience with us. This time of year the heat and humidity can be unbearable, but thankfully the Mosquitos haven't been as bad as they can be. It always a pleasure to read and hear that we have met our goal to provide our guests a memorable experience. More

Living in Miami, you forget about a lot of things there is to do in your own backyard. I've wanted to do an airboat tour for years and finally had the chance. We chose BTAT because of their great ratings on TripAdvisor. Perfect choice. I'm amazed that anyone could find their way in the sawgrass but our guide, Randy, took... More

We are glad that you finally made it out to experience a ride in the Everglades and look forward to possibly seeing you again in the future. Randy is a terrific guide who learned from his grandfather about our home and he enjoys taking people out and sharing that knowledge. More

We stumbled across this Airboat ride almost by accident - having missed our planned company way back west on the I41 (We travelled from the Naples area). This company is run by the local Indians - and the difference is significant! This was my third Airboat trip (spread over many years). I was expecting the usual excuses of 'wont actually... More

We just went with our guide Fabian on a fabulous airboat tour. They gave us blankets so our seats don't get so hot. He explained so much about the wildlife and we got to see gators a few inches away. We also saw fish, birds, frogs and plants. Finishing up our tour we experienced a Native American house and Fabian... More

Visiting Miami and being so close to the Everglades, the airboats were a must on my list. As my friends and I were reading through Yelp reviews, we ultimately decided on going with Buffalo Tiger's which was a great decision. As we were purchasing our tickets, my friend asked what if we didn't see any alligators. She went on another... More

We studied many reviews before selecting this tour and it was well worth the research.Our tour guide was Fabian a genuine native American with excellent knowledge. They don't overfill the boats or wait until they are full. We had 8 on ours. We saw plenty of Alligators including a nest of babies. We went to the refurbished reservation that had... More

I studied most of the air boat places long before our trip. I picked this one for several reasons. The reviews here are a big help, but I wanted something more than a tourist attraction. The name alone told me this was what I wanted. The others may be longer. They might even be better. But. having a real Native... More

A great tour, courtesy of Fabian. Saw alligators before we even boarded the airboat, and babies too. Highly recommended

I really reccomend Buffalo Tiger's Airboat. I paid $27.5 and the trip lasted about 50 minutes. During the trip I could see 10ish alligators (big and small) and colourful birds. The experience was really worthed. Highly reccomended.

Drive past all of the other tours and tour with Buffalo Tigers. The boat size is great ... unlike some of the others with 40+ in one boat. This company waits about 10 minutes or so for others to join. If no one else comes, you end up with a private tour like we did! Freddy was wonderful, very knowledgeable... More
