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.

A few miles more up the road than the crowded tourists traps. Guide was local and knowledgeable and knew many of the wild alligators by name and would even wave them over to the boat. Saw wild birds too. We stopped at an Indian village,...More

I have always wanted to do a tour of the everglades and this was the perfect way to do it. Knowledgeable your guide, great views. Florida is in drought now so not a lot of wild life, but the glades themselves are beautiful.

A very small company just before you reach Shark Valley from the east. A nice 10 minutes airboat ride to one of the Hammock Islands. There we got an interesting briefing about wildlife in the ENP and the problems this park encounters.
