Our company does not run the "big boats" or the "jet boats" we run only the small six passenger airboats. Your captian will take you through both the unique grassland praries and winding mangrove tunnels on your tour into this national treasure we call the Florida Everglades.

Something totally unexpected was the speed of the boat!! And fortunately the skill of the captain. He took us through some amazingly narrow canals and over swamps...wind in the face, noisy and great fun. Stopped occasionally to hear about the wild life and history of the area. No gators but that is luck of the draw! Well worth it.

Airboat thru the mangroves and grasslands. My great-niece was with us (10yo) and wanted to get wet, Captain Bill obliged! He stopped several times and talked to us about the area,

This was an excellent adventure for my entire family! Captain Hoss knew so much about the area and wildlife. I have 3 teenagers and they really enjoyed the airboat! Thanks Captain Hoss

When our children were young we took them on Speedy's Airboat Tour. We loved it. Good to see a decade plus later they are still here and providing a great airboat tour. Our driver Bill was awesome. And how nice to find he was a Michigan native as we were. Small world when we only lived 30 miles apart.

You shouldn't miss it. It was fun and fun and we also were lucky to see an alligator. I wished to do that the whole day. What an experience!

An exciting drive from Naples along the famous US41 and then into Everglades City. Speedy's Airboat Tours were recommended by our hotel and likewise we would recommend them to anyone looking for some fun. We will not give too much away but following the signing of an indemnity agreement removing liability away from Speedy's should you be struck by lightning... More

Through a recommendation from a friend, I called Speedy's Airboat Tours. Warm, friendly reservationist. Arrived early, as requested. At 11 a.m. on Saturday, had a 6-passenger boat to ourselves (a couple). Captain Hoss was terrific. Gave us information about the private mangrove and grass areas we visited, and he was funny. We will do this again and will bring family... More

We had had the most amazing Airboat ride the previous day with Airboat in Everglades. Please read my Trip Advisor review for Airboat In Everglades 17696 SW 8th St, Miami, FL 33194 dated Dec 16 and titled, ‘Wow, wow, wow’. So we had high expectations, of this company as I had read the positive and negative reviews of them. To... More

Seeing the mangrove forests and visiting the Everglades was one of my trips highlights for my first trip to the U.S. Captain Shane really knows his stuff and he is a genuine Florida Cracker. He made all his guests feel good and I could have listened to him speak for hours. If I have a chance to visit again, I... More
