We stumbled upon Tippy's by accident. We were told by natives to look for a place that had small airboats because they go faster and can go through places the larger ones can't. The other commercial airboat places had packed parking lots and lines of large airboats. We nearly drove past Tippy's, but saw the small airboat and no crowd.

The people at Tippy's couldn't have been nicer. The normal charge is $40 for a 40 minute ride. They gave us half price for the kids. Maximum number of passengers (including the driver) was 8 - perfect for our family of 5. The driver did a super job, showed us a number of things about the Everglades along the way and answered our kids multiple questions.

Back at the outpost the owner showed us all a couple baby alligators the Indian tribe had given to them. They even got to hold a little guy named Carlos. It was an extremely memorable and fun adventure. I would highly recommend it.
