Well worth the drive. Happened upon the place when our other reservations fell through. Small air boat, took the four of us to an indian outpost in the swamp. Very educational and informative. Would definitely go again. Fantastic pulled pork sandwiches too! - Linda W. via Google+
Be prepared to have the wind in your face & hair and .... you will get a bit wet.... but....hay, if you want to experience "Florida" this is it. And you can visit an actual inactive Miccosukee Indian Village that is only accessible by Airboat, and see a nice gator family.... Momma Gator, Poppa Gator who happens to be about 60 years old, and 2 babies, ...less than a foot long. I didn't see Poppa.... but Momma and the 2 babies were out. Save some time to eat while there. Great local Native food. - Sharon T. via TripAdvisor
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Jack the alligator, their outdoor pet (as they call him) I was horrified at first to get on a low & open boat like that surrounded by alligators but, it turned out to be quite safe, and enjoyed every second of our tour in the Everglades! - Irena M. via Facebook
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. - "Pppmomof3" via TripAdvisor
The boat only holds up to six people and my husband and I were the only two passengers on the boat. We stopped at an island, and as we were leaving two other boats arrived. There had to of been 50 or more people coming off the two boats! Why would you want to be one of 50 when you can have the boat all to yourselves?! Crazy! (I'm not sure how fun it would be to be in a middle row in the center of the row!) Our captain, Carlos, grew up in the Everglades and he was an excellent tour guide. We were very happy to support this local business. Highly recommend! - Connie O. via TripAdvisor

WHO WE ARE
Eco-Tours by Airboat was founded in 2012 by the indigenous management of Tippy's Chopekcheke in part as a continuation of a family history of Everglades exploration and education. Tippy's is an authentic Native American market located just outside of Everglades National Park, allowing guests to enjoy their time in the Everglades even after the tour ends.

Offering much more than just a ride, climb aboard and experience a unique form of cultural, historical, and environmental immersion in the form of a cultural seminar... that takes the form of an adventure on airboat! Each experience is tailored to our guests' preference allowing you to learn, cruise, sightsee, and visit destinations at your own pace.
