Overview

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.

Our airboat guide (Burt) was very knowledgeable and obviously cared passionately about the Everglades environment and wildlife. Very enjoyable and informative.
