Overview

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.

We were on a 1 hour tour. Amazing trip with stops on two islands. Our guide, Humberto, was fantastic. Very dedicated and he could tell us a lot about nature, animals and habitat in the Everglade.

My wife and I had a great time. 1 hour trip. We were only the 2 of us on the boat. 60usd per person. Perfect if you are looking for something out off usual tourist tours.
