What a great little find! At first we were skeptical because we were the only guests that stopped.... we stopped at a couple of other locations passing through but none seemed to grab our interest. Here, we were greeted by Humberto and Tim.... then we met Jaws! So fun. We took our ride, went out to the little rebab center,... More

My mom and I were staying the night at a campground in the Everglades and decided to take an airboat ride. There are plenty to choose from and a couple places were very busy and had packed parking lots, but we decided to use one of the smaller company's. The first place we stopped was closest to the Midway campground... More

We had a group of 10, including 5 kids ages 3-8 in tow. I can't imagine waiting in line at any of the places we passed on way to Tigertail. Not only were each of the others packed, but can only think of those who had multiple buses out front. We also had Umberto as our guide, who was wonderful... More

Our tour guide Umberto was without a doubt the very best we could ever have wished for!!!! Driving by all the others with rows of tour buses out front, I am so very glad that we picked this company for our tour. We did a 2 hour private tour and the 4 of us had a blast. There is already... More

Kenny, our pilot/guide was fantastic. He spent lots of time answering the questions our kids had about the local wildlife. They really enjoyed the opportunity to hold a gator. I'd always wanted to do an airboat ride since I was a kid and it was excellent. Kenny was very relaxed and happy to stop if we wanted to take some... More

We had a blast. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. I would have liked it a little longer, but knew going in the time limit. We did get to see several gators.

Humberto was extremely knowledgable and friendly. Very relaxed tour and gave us lots of personal tidbits of info. He appears to be at one with the alligators (worryingly!) The alligator experience is VERY up close and personal. They take good care of the animals that they have on the private island and seem to be very much on the conservation... More

I made a reservation for a private hour-long airboat tour for several weeks in advance and was told to check back with them closer to the tour date in case the weather was bad. Luckily, the weather was perfect and I was able to confirm my tour by phone the day before. Unfortunately, I used the address listed on TripAdvisor... More

Humberto is an awesome guide. Knowledgable but most importantly passionate about making sure he provides great information as well as answering any questions. Don't go on the big airboats too many people! Arranging the time was easy through email and I even had to move my reservation by an hour which was no problem. Location was easy to find right...

Had a confirmed booking for a 2 hours Tour in the morning. No guide, no boat at the meeting point. Waited for 45 Minutes. Tried to give them a a call? No answering, Just a answering machine. Sended an E-mail? No answering at the Same Day. Lousy, waste of Time. Never again.
