First time on an airboat and I cannot stop talking about it! We made the two-hour trip from Port Charlotte and we'll do it again! We had a blast and highly recommend Speedy's.

Fun and thrilling ride in an amazing place. We wanted to see both the mangroves and the grasslands so we chose Speedy's as they cover both of those areas. Captain Fred was fantastic.

Captain Fred was amazing! He got my teenagers engaged in the experience, and was by far their favorite part of our visit to Florida. I would highly recommend them and Capt. Fred to anyone wanting a great experience in the everglades.

This was a great thing to do. We really loved it and especially capt. bill who was a pro. No question stayed unanswered, a good exiting ride and plenty of wildlife to see. Only turn down for the teenagers: no free wifi on board of the airboat

My family thoroughly enjoyed our adventure through the Everglades with Capt Fred, who according to our 16 year son is a complete legend. Definitely a trip not to be missed when in Florida.

The Speedy Everglades-tour was amazing. Especially Fred, our airboat-captain. he was such a nice guy,and he had always a laugh on his face, and took pictures of us. He explains us alot about the Everglades and took time for us to explain details about the animals and landscape in the Everglades . Thank you for this amazing trip Fred!. Best... More
