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... More

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.

We were lucky and managed to arrange a trip out after just turning up. Had fantastic fun riding out to their island and then to see the baby gators and hold them was amazing. Great adventure and reasonable price and would recommend to others.

We had a great day out with our guide Kenny. We pre arranged the night before by phone and then turned up at the arranged time and we were off. There were 7 of us going out and we were soon zooming along looking for wildlife. Anytime our guide saw something he would stop so we could take pictures (gators,... More

We were driving from Key West on the Tamiami trail to Ft. Myers. We knew we wanted to do an airboat ride, and saw some major tourist traps along the way. I used Tripadvisor to find one along our route and came to Tigertail. I liked that it's a no frills tour (no lunch stop, no gift shop, gimmicks like... More

Humberto knew everything about the area. This family business is more interested in the ecology and preservation of the Everglades than the normal touristy gater attractions. He stopped along our 2hour tour ($85 per person) to let us take pics, feel and smell plants and was a wealth of info about the local Indian tribe as well as gaters,etc. highly... More

Small operator offering informative & exciting airboat rides for $25 per person (£15). Saw alligators in their natural habitat as well as rescued ones on the island. Got to handle some really little ones. Privileged to be shown a snail kite nest with two hatchlings in it. Loved the 45 minute trip. Gave us a small insight into a unique... More
