After passing several airboat places along the way to Shark Valley we decided to pull in here. We did stop at the Safari one but we decided not to want to ride on a huge boat like they offer. At Buffalo the boat was mid size, like 5 rows. Another couple and us were the only ones on the first... More

I loved the fact that nobody else was in the boat. So it was almost like a private tour. Chris was very patient and educated us to appreciate the land and the animals according to his grant father's way. They charge less than other companies and stay 45 minutes in the water.

Very cool experience. Saw several gators and watched our guide feed them and touch them which was pretty amazing. Loved the boat ride itself.

I found this excellent experience of the beautiful Florida Everglades back in 2000, and I've been going back ever since. A transplant to Miami, I've taken dozens of visitors with me on these rides and everyone has had a wonderful time. All of the guides are Native American - some Miccosukee, some from Guatemala who married into the tribe. They... More

Eric was our guide and made the trip! He cut our wait down from 30 min to 5 and gave us a great tour of the everglades, pointed things out and got us right next to the gators! Well worth the trip and best price around! Don't forget to try the grilled gator at the food truck...Also 5 stars!

We had so much fun on the boat! Great experience. Daniel told us a lot about the indianculture and how they live in such enviroment. We get a lot of information about the gators. Most important thing we felt and saw is the love for nature.

45 minute airboat ride with beautiful views, and a really nice guide. We saw gators, birds, and stopped at an island to look at additional fauna, and so our guide could tell us more about Buffalo Tiger and his family. The gift shop had fun stuff as well. I would definitely go again!!!

Daniel was our guide and did a great job finding alligators. He taught us a lot about the Native American land and alligators in the Micosukee territory. We felt completely safe the entire trip. For young kids, our youngest just under 4 yrs old, it was the perfect amount of time. We were out on the airboat for about 50ish... More

Having a choice of many different companies doing airboat tours, it depends totally on your guide, what you get out of it. In our case we got a very good experience out of this tour. The guide gave a lot of information, not only about the gators, but also about the everglades eco-system, birds and different native American tribes. Job... More
