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.

On our last day of vacation we decided to drive through the Everglades and into Everglade City. We chose Speedy's Airboat Tours on a wim and ended up having one of the most thrilling days as a family. Captain Tony was our guide and he couln't have done a more perfect tour for our family which includes three teenage boys.... More

We had a great experience with Captain Bill, part nature tour-part thrill ride! It was a Spring Break treat for my husband and I, our son, and his college roommate. Thank you Bill :)

We went on an airboat tour with Captain Hoss. He did a good job sharing his 21 years of Everglades knowledge with us and piloting our boat. We got to see a manatee and although disappointed that we didn't see a gator, we were given a map and drove to a remote canal and saw many gators with many photo... More

We had a blast on the airboat with Captain Kevin. His donuts were hilarious. He was informative about the Everglades. The ride was one of the best times I have had. Kevin not only told us about the mangroves but where we could see some gaiters and other wildlife. Thanks so much Kevin!

Very cool trip. Captain Kevin showed us around and even had a little fun doing some quick turns and 180s. Would do it again.

My family and I went to Speedy's Airboat Tours a couple of days ago and we cannot tell you how much we loved it. We booked a twelve o'clock tour for one hour and it was definitely worth it. Our captain was called Captain Tony and he was a very experienced driver as well as very knowledgeable. Once we got... More

This was a great and thrilling ride! We were informed about the Everglades. Captain Fred did a great job. The trip was reasonably priced too! I would encourage everyone to go there.

Had a blast! We've been on several airboat tours and Speedy's is by far the best. Captain Tony was funny and informative, not to mention an extremely skilled operator. We learned quite a bit about the everglades while exploring the mangroves and bombing around the more open grasslands. So if you're looking for a good time, call Speedy's and ask... More
