At Tigertails we specialize in small guided airboat tours. We operate in the southern end of the Everglades on Tamiami trail in the Miccosukee reservation near Miami. You will experience the Everglades first hand as you handle young alligators and turtles while learning about the wildlife, the area and the proud people who live here from one of our experienced guides.

Did the two hour semi-private tour, no one else so ended up being a private tour. It was a little more expensive but I think it was worth it. The water in July was very high and it is nesting time so we did not...More

A few miles more up the road than the crowded tourists traps. Guide was local and knowledgeable and knew many of the wild alligators by name and would even wave them over to the boat. Saw wild birds too. We stopped at an Indian village,...More

We planned months in advance for a private airboat tour, but upon arrival the operator had no record of our reservation for the day we made it. We were able to go on a group tour, but the boat was only operating on 7 cylinders...More

I have always wanted to do a tour of the everglades and this was the perfect way to do it. Knowledgeable your guide, great views. Florida is in drought now so not a lot of wild life, but the glades themselves are beautiful.

A very small company just before you reach Shark Valley from the east. A nice 10 minutes airboat ride to one of the Hammock Islands. There we got an interesting briefing about wildlife in the ENP and the problems this park encounters.

We were on an hour long trip with two children age 6 and 8. It was amazing and we saw a lot of gators.

Yes, a car is necessary. But I promise you it's worth it! It's a nice ride in the Everglades and this particular operator goes above and beyond. Enjoy!

I don't work there, but I've done their tour, which is fabulous. I can tell you that I believe 10 people could fit on their boats. I think you could easily fit four across and there are three bench seats. Sorry I can't... More
