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 planned months in advance for a private airboat tour, but upon arrival the operator had no record of our reservation for the day we made it. We were able to go on a group tour, but the boat was only operating on 7 cylinders...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.

How different of an experience is a Tigertail tour from the Shark Valley tram? We have one day in the Everglades and I'm wondering if doing both would be at all redundant since they are so close. Our alternative would be one of the airboat tours on the gulf coast side of the park.

Yes, a car is necessary. But I promise you it's worth it! It's a nice ride in the Everglades and this particular operator goes above and beyond. Enjoy!

Hi, we are a party of ten 50-60 year olds coming to Miami in March 2016 from London. How much would it cost for us to have a tour and could we all do it on one boat together? Also, we are likely to be staying out South Beach; do you arrange transport to collect and return?

I don't work there, but I've done their tour, which is fabulous. I can tell you that I believe 10 people could fit on their boats. I think you could easily fit four across and there are three bench seats. Sorry I can't... More
