Beautiful air boat ride across the everglades, on which the guide told us all about the local wildlife. Also got a tour of their conservation area, with alligator and turtle enclosures. Fully recommend!
I don’t buy it...’ a visit to an Island where ”we rehabilitate and relocate abandoned, injured and nuisance animals” This includes keeping various turtles in filthy tanks of water and a large alligator in a tiny pen where apparently it’s 3 months through it’s 6...More
We really enjoyed our airboat tour with Tigertail. The ride was fun. The guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We learned a lot about the southern everglades, the wildlife that lives there, the environmental problems and the solutions that are being implemented. We also enjoyed...More
We were in a group tour and really enjoyed the full experience of hearing the story of the Tigertail family. We saw no sign of cruelty noted in some reviews. The animals are all treated with reverence and respect. We would definitely go again.
This is a small local operator. Our guide really cared about the Everglades environment and had so much knowledge about this special place. His passion for this environment really came through in the way he explained the ecosystem to us. We took the two hour...More
I was told by the Viatour agent on the phone, that we can park our car near the pick up point for $1 an hour. The parking actually was too far for us to make it on time (drive away 550 meters and then walk...More

Thank you for your interest in our tours.
Our 2 standard tours are the 1 hour is which is $60 per person and the 2 hour that is $85 per person. We try to keep it to just one group per boat. If we do have to combine groups we still keep them as small as possible. This way we have the opportunity to speak with everyone. If you would like to ensure it is just your group on the boat we charge an extra $15 per visitor on top of the regular price.
Longer, night tours and specialized tours such as birdwatching and filming are available upon request.
On both the 1 hour and 2 hour tours you make 2 stops. Our private island and the Tigertail camp.
Our island is where we care for nuisance or injured wildlife that we rescue for the local community. This is where your group will have the opportunity to interact with some of the wildlife.
The second island is where the Tigertail family lived up to the late seventies. This is where you might get the opportunity to meet a few members of the gator family that lives there including the 13 ft Papa gator.
The 2 hour tour gives us the opportunity to go out farther, away from other boats, where we get better chances of seeing the wildlife out in a natural setting. You also see a change the change in landscape as you travel to different
