We did this amazing tour with the children (10 and 18) - fun for everyone. The speciality of Speedy's is the ride through the graslands. Captain Bill's 360's where awesome. You should not miss this ride when you are in Florida.

We went on Speedy's Airboat Tours during a visit to Florida during spring break. It was great fun! My kids ages 10 & 12 had smiles on their faces the entire time. My daughter said it was one of the most fun things she's ever done (and we've been to Disney many times). Our captain, Captain Tony was great. He... More

My family went a few weeks ago with captain hoss! He definitely has a big part in making the ride fun as well as funny! It's a learning experience too, he was very informative about the nature of the Everglades. You can tell he connects through his heart with his work and the nature. & his name is just awesome...

Captain Fred gave us a great tour and was very knowledgeable about Everglades plant and wildlife. Definitely recommend this tour as there are many acres to explore beyond just the mangroves. The Speedy's Tour took us into the grasslands, which, although there weren't any gators out, allowed for some great photo ops.

I did the Speedy's Airboat ride at least 5 times already and if friends join my vacation in Florida I will always bring them to Speed's Airboat Tours for a ride. All of them (including me) can confirm that this is really a ride worth to do it. Of course it depends on the current water level and temperature/weather situation... More

We didn't plan an airboat tour in advance so had to call a couplebof them to have one with immediate availability. Advantage of Speedy's Airboat Tours is that they have small/private boats that are leaving every half an hour. + they supply ear muffs covering all your ears and by far much more comfortable than the cheap earplugs some other...
