“It was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

A quick call last sunday morning and only one hour later me and my friend were on the Buffalo Tiger's airboat. The guide was super-friendly and gave a lot of interesting info about gators and the Everglades.

“Very knowledgable tour guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Buffalo Tiger's Airboat Tours are an absolute must. It's a great value for getting a private tour for just your party, and you see a lot of alligators. Our tour guide, Ernie Redwing, was very friend and knew the answer to every question we could think of regarding the gators. We saw so many gators up close, and Ernie handled them with such confidence. Overall highly recommended!

“Buffalo tiger experience of a lifetime”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

We read other reviews and decided on this tour. There are many airboat operators. Few with as many good reviews. Buffalo Tiger is worth it.

We immediately saw a 14 foot alligator at the dock. Then we spotted about 8 more on our trip. This time of year alligators are a bit harder to find but our guide knew exactly where to go. He used alligator calls to bring the gators in close.

He ride was smooth. They provide headphones to reduce noise. We only had 4 on our boat what a value an hour tour for $27 each , wow.

Thanks to the osceola family and favio.

“Great - wonderful afternoon out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

We weren't sure which airboat guide to go with but followed the recommendations.

We were on our own smaller boat and the whole experience was wonderful.

The children were nervous (OK, I was too) and the speed and movement of the boat can be nerve-racking but it was fun. Erney was a great guide and very knowledgeable. He took us straight to see the gaters and seemed to have no fear. We seen four in total and Erney was very 'hands on'.

We visited the 'reserve' which is now more for tourists but the appearance of around 10-12 raccoons was a surprise - but Erney distracted them to allow us to get off the boat!

The host took a group photo and we have left with some great memories - thank you.
