Captain Steve gave us an unforgetable experience on the airboat also shared some facts about Everglades. We highly recommend Speedy's.

We arrived early for this trip and took the first boat out at 9am. We were lucky that no other people arrived so we effectively had a private tour with just two of us on the boat. Our tour with Captain Hoss was nothing short of brilliant. Asked us what we were looking for and gave us a superb tour... More

Cap'n. Fred gave us a fun time on the airboat along the mangroves and through the grasslands. As there were only two of us on it, he asked if we wanted to go fast which was exciting. Saw Ospreys and an alligator turned up for us. He also gave us directions to a nearby Boardwalk to see more and told... More

Captain Fred gave a killer tour! We had wind in our faces as we cruised through the backwater glades and open grasslands. Absolutely beautiful scenery everywhere, and a live gator to boot found in a back pool. Capt Fred could not have been more fun and helpful. Well worth the small cost to do this!

A fantastic tour with Captain Tony. He drove us around the islands of Everglades. It was a grate experience. Tony know how to handle an airboat for sure. He gave us an information of where to go further to experience Everglades wildlife.

We started out getting a boat ride without reservation. It was really beautiful going through mangrove creeks and grasslands. We saw two alligators and the birds were everywhere. Our captain was Fred. He was knowledgeable on the environment and very friendly. We went very fast on his boat and we loved the turns.

My mother, myself and my two kids are always looking for unique things to do on vacation. This year we found Speedy's. Captain Harold was our guide and we couldn't have asked for a better one. He was knowledgable and thoughtful and even gave the kids the opportunity to drive the boat! This experience was definitely worth the cost. We... More

After research we chose Speedys as they travel the furthest into the Everglades and have excellent reviews. We chose well, a very experienced driver in Aaron, who comes from a long line of local men shared his knowledge and experiences of growing up in this amazing environment. We took time to discuss the habitat and of course saw lots of... More
