“Just a slice of heaven - great price and wonderful guide!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

I can't even begin to tell you how over the top amazing this place was! Skip the tourist traps and keep going the extra five minutes to the Miccosukee tour - trust me! The guide was super knowledgeable about gators, we saw lots, and of course he was an expert at showing off his gator language! I can't even tell you how clean the air was, how beautiful the day, and how well organized it was, complete with a herd of friendly raccoons at the indian village part way round the tour. This establishment was top flight!

We had Ernie Redwing as our guide - he was FANTASTIC and made us feel at home. You can tell there is a great deal of pride that goes into giving these tours - there was not even a hint of 'jaded tour guide' in this fellow - he was enthusiastic and gave us a great trip.

I will definitely be back and it made for an amazing memory of our first trip to the everglades! Thank you so much!

“The best airboat ride in the Everglades by far!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you want a fun, relaxing thing to do in the Everglades, check out Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Rides. It is one of the best experiences to our trip to Florida. Our tour guide went so fast on out airboat it was like you were a cloud on the water. He went so close up to the alligators and shared his knowledge on them. We took two stops with the alligators, and 1 stop with racoons. We took a walk on a bridge in a swampy area which was owned by a Indian family. It was such a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone.

“Saw 3 Alligators!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was a great airboat ride! I had researched others but liked that it was a quieter and not as touristy operation. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun. We arrived just as they were closing (got hung up with all the road construction on the way there) and they were very accommodating and took us out (5 of us...3 kids ages 15-11). The alligators were very close to the boat. We got great pictures! Saw some beautiful birds as well. This was one of the top highlights of our trip to Florida. We HIGHLY recommend this Airboat tour!

“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 ....
