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.

We had a great time. The guide was super knowledgeable and nice. No problem to answer all the questions we had. Went to a small island where he showed us small animals which the kids liked a lot. Highly recommended.
