Friendly well informed guide Angel helped to make this a really memorable trip. Excellent knowledge about the area and wildlife. Hands on experience with rescued animals and learning how they are rehabilitated was very interesting. Thoroughly recommend this personable and friendly tour.

If your are in the Miami area I highly recommend Tigertails airboat tours. We had plenty of airboat tours to choose from, but I'm glad we chose this one. We did the 2 hour semi-private tour, which ended up being a private tour because we were the only ones on the boat. Our captain (I think his name was Burt)... More

Two of us chose a two-hour boat tour. Driver was knowledgeable and warmed up a bit as we got going. At first he just stuck to his prepared speech. You don't really see gators, but we saw a couple of amazing birds' nests. The ride is good, though. Relaxing and enjoyable, just as a speedy whizz through deserted waters. Worst... More
