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.

There is a large selection of Airboat Tour Companies to choose from in the Everglades. We chose Speedy's based on the recommendation of a local business owner. The price was right, the wait wasn't long, and Captain Jeff was a real character. We had a great time and even saw a gator. Highly entertaining and recommended.

Capt. Jeff gave us a great ride!! We got to see dolphins and lots a wildlife. The mangroves were narrow and he kept it a safe ride. Since we didn't see and gators due to high water capt Jeff lets us play with a little alligator back at the store.

Chose Speedy's over several other airboat tours recommended on Tripadvisor, because they were very helpful on the phone, offered boats that took small groups, and the one hour ride included seeing both the mango tunnels and the open grasses. We did not want to bother with having to take one boat from one location; then get out, drive to another... More

I heard about this place while I was chatting with another passenger on our flight from Wisconsin to Florida. He suggested our group of four try this so we could look for alligators. We drove down south from Fort Myers. It was worth the trip. Our captain, Bill, gave us an exciting tour. While we did not see any alligators... More

This is the 3rd time we have used Speedy's Airboat Tour and are very pleased with the experience. We recommend them highly! Their boats can go out into the grasslands where other boat tours cannot. Captain Jeff was a very good guide.

We have always used another guide when visiting Everglades City but they were full. We opted for Speedy's and were left a bit disappointed. The ride was fun overall but a few things were missing, like any sign of wildlife! On the ride we never saw a gator, bird or brown pelican for that matter. Perhaps it was the weather... More

If you are in SW Florida and looking for something to do, check out this fun adventure riding an airboat through the beautiful Everglades. Ask for Hass to be your driver and watch out for his zany pranks and great sense of humor. Highly recommend!

Incredible way to seethe Everglades. Exceeded expectations. We had CPT. Henry and he made it fun and educational. Rare opportunity. Don't miss it if in this part of Florida. They also recommended Havanna Cafe which was a great spot

I'm really not much of boat person, but this was really fun. We got to tour some private areas, so not as busy as some other areas. We learned a lot and felt like we were in very capable hands with Captain Bill as our guide.

We took the one hour tour with Captain Kevin. It was an exhilarating 60 minutes. The ride thru the mangroves was interesting and the sections on open water were exciting. I would do it again!
