We recently drove 30 minutes from downtown Miami to the Everglades to take an airboat tour of the region. What a great time we had at Buffalo Tiger! Eric was our guide. Not only did we have a blast, jetting around the swamps at 50 mph on an airboat, but we met a number of alligators 1st hand. Eric knew just where these reptiles were. We would pull up next to them, Eric would call them over to the boat, and they would perform for us. He even kissed one on the snout! Not for the faint of heart!!

We also saw all manner of birds and had a thoroughly enjoyable time on this private tour for our family of three. I highly recommend Buffalo Tiger. I have been on other airboat tours, and this is this "La Creme de la Creme!"

We loved our time on the airboat at Buffalo Tiger's. We saw 4 or 5 alligators, plus plenty of birds and even some turtles. This was a blast! Our tour guide, Randy, was young be knowledgeable and friendly. He made this a great experience that we will recommend to others as often as possible.

If you intend to take an air boat ride in the Everglades, this is the one! The boats are smaller ( ours seated 6 ) and the guides are Native American of the Miccosukee tribe. Fantastic fun blasting around the sea of grass.
Our guide, Mr. Redwing, would periodically stop and entice gators to closely approach the boat, calling to them with clicking noises. He was extremely knowledgeable, interacted with them and conveyed plenty of gator lore. Lots of birds, lots of gators, and even a brief stop at a reconstructed Indian village.
This was the type of air boat adventure I remember from TV shows, and made the air boat place up the road with the tour buses look like a Disney ride. Buffalo Tiger is the one!

This is the airboat ride to pick from of the many on the this highway. You get a good ride, see many alligators and stop and see the raccoons and the old family grounds. After you do the ride, go the National Everglades Park and the Indian Village. On the way back stop at the Pit BBQ and eat outside.

Really enjoyed the Buffalo Tiger's airboat tour. Driving out SW 8th St., you will pass several airboat tours with packed parking lots, tour busses and crowds. Keep driving past those ones about 4 more miles and you will reach Buffalo Tiger's. No busses or crowds, and an outdoor BBQ going at lunchtime. We got some amazing close up photos of the gators, had a fun boat ride (hold onto your hat), and walked around a small island and nature walk in the middle of the Everglades. Cost was $27.50 per person, credit cards accepted. Our tour guide, Fabian, was very knowledgeable and interesting. No reservations necessary, and the boats run frequently with a shaded waiting area with benches. Restrooms are portapottys. They give you earplugs to block out the airboat noise when moving from location to location. We were in South Florida for a sports event and were very glad that we did this tour in the few hours we had to spare.
