“Thanks Finlay for a great ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Finaly's understanding of the Everglades and its creatures is second to none! We were treated to a boat ride that involved just us and Finlay - we chose a quiet time to arrive at Buffalo. Finlay took us out to a couple of mud patches and we had a 65-year-old gator come alongside the boat to take some food samples from Finlay! Was awrsome to be so close. You'll have a great time and at $25 each, it is well worth the charge.

“Awesome tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Just what most other reviews say, a great place with knowledgeable staff, got to see lots of alligators, turtles, birds and a great explanation from our guide of their natural habitat. Stopped off on an island and got up close to a family of raccoons who were adorable. Well worth driving past the other more touristy gator parks ....

“Had a blast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

I had a great time on this airboat tour. The guides are knowledgeable and entertaining and got us close to a lot of alligators and other wildlife. They also take you through a traditional Indian camp. I have nothing but good things to say about this tour.

“A+++++!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We wanted a great experience for our family with two boys. I read reviews - and chose Buffalo Tigers. Wow!!! It was a blast! Saw 2 males, 2 females, 2 babies and 1 other adult alligator (7 in all) plus some neat birds and about 10 raccoons at the island. Our tour guide Erik was wonderful and humble. He made sounds to have them come up to the boat - a bit scary - but soooo worth it!!! Loved it and highly recommend it. Saw boats loaded with people at the other tour stops. Well worth a few more miles of driving. We arrived at 10:30am. Got a boat with one other couple. When we got back - by 11:30 there were quite a few people - so come early if you want fewer people. Have a wonderful time!!

“Cool Everglades tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Our family of 6 went on this trip a few weeks ago before our cruise. It took us about 45 minutes to get out there from the Brickell area because they were working on the road. Once we got there they got us on the next tour boat which we only had to wait about 15 minutes for. Very reasonably priced and they provided blankets for us because it was pretty cold that morning when we went. The guide was very knowledgeable and kept the attention of my kids. It was so cool how the alligators just came up to the side of the boat and we even touched one. Never knew that they could not see forward and just to the side. We saw great wildlife and the little private island was OK. Very good tour for the time and money. You will pass a couple of bigger companies that have more things to do but I like to support the small businessman and this company was a bargain.
