A great airboat ride with captain Fred at speedy's. He was the perfect captain for everyone from my retired in-laws to my 7 year old boy! Thanks for a fun day.

Aaron was our guide and he was excellent! Skillful driver who entertained us throughout the trip and caught our hats when the wind got them on a turn.

An airboat ride was on our list of things we wanted to experience while visiting Naples. We were recommended "Speedy's Airboats Tours" by Oscar at our resort. We were very impressed with Captain Bill and our tour. He explained the history of the Everglades and we had a fun time exploring. We saw two alligators and numerous birds. The speed... More

We have been on several other airport rides in the last two years. Speedy' was by far the best! The airboat ride was the highlight of our granddaughters' visit to Naples. This was due to in part to Bill, our driver and guide. We got to see several large alligators and many birds. We would highly recommend this airboat ride... More

We were a bit disappointed with the lack of information the guide provided on our experience and lack of wildlife. We saw only a couple crocodile's, few birds, and a raccoon. This is in large part due to the salt water that is present this time of year (guide mentioned we should go to H.P. Williams Wayside). We did this... More

Captain Kevin was an excellent guide :) I've been on multiple Airboat rides, and no place comes close to the quality of Speedy's.

Our family had Captain Fred as our guide yesterday. He was informative and hilariously fun! Even my Dad's wife enjoyed it, which says something right there considering she's been on other airboat tours and didn't have a great experience. However, the tour is only 45 min., not an hour as stated. And we only saw one alligator, but that isn't... More

My husband and I have lived in south FL for about 7 years. We have been on an airboat once before when family visited but it was with a different airboat company. We recently had family in town again that had yet to go airboating and we surprised them with an airboat trip at Speedy's Airboat Tours! We decided to... More

We had a beautiful fun ride with two of our friends and "Wild Bill" was at the helm! Bill was not only informative but took the time to really show us around and explain to us fun facts about the Everglades while making sure we were having some fun! I would definitely recommend Speedy's and will be coming back soon!... More
