We had read the reviews of some of the other airboat tours and decided on Tigertails on a whim. We are glad we did, because it was excellent. Kenny, our guide, was very knowledgeable, and told us of the flora as well as the fauna of the Everglades. He stopped the boat a few times just to show us different species of plants, pointed out birds and explained about lifecycles in the area. We made two islands stops, the first had penned crocs, one of which was almost ready for release back into the Everglades, another was a rescue case who had lost a leg in a fight and now lived in semi-retirement. On the second island Kenny explained about the local Miccosukee Indian tribe who work with the local rangers to protect the ecology of the area.
Our original one hour was closer to two when we finally returned to the pick-up point. We also liked the fact that we were on a small boat (only the two of us) and that the price was very resonable. We felt we had more than our money's worth.
