My wife and I took the hour-long airboat ride this morning and had a good time. If you visit the Everglades you definitely have to do this.

An excellent hour with captain Fred . We are all roller coaster enjoyers with the exception of my wife. It was speedy and great fun. She asked to slow down after a bit which Fred was happy to do. His precision driving is amazing! It's a nice personal trip with the four of of us. A good activity if you... More

We enjoyed our trip with Captain Harold Mays immensely! The tour included weaving through mangrove channels, sweeping across open bodies of water and flying over grassland, all at varying speeds. Plus we saw some lovely birds and an alligator! It really was an all-encompassing trip, great for everyone! And the Captain was such a lovely man! Thanks again Speedy Airboat... More

We were tipped off to this operation by a local waiter, and then we gave him a good tip! Speedys was efficient and fun. Capt Fred took us around the Everglades and made it quite enjoyable. Initially he took it easy (cause of my 83yr old mother-in-law) but when he saw her throwing up her hands in enjoyment he let... More

My sister and I went on our first Airboat Tour and had an amazing time with Capt Harry. We were staying in Naples and a friend recommended Speedy's.

Before we got started on our journey he told us all about the mangroves, grasslands, and the wildlife we could potentially see. We saw alligators, blue heron, needle nose fish, a few crab... More

Had a trip with captain Fred in October 2014. Booked it at our hotel (Ivey House). Highly recommended (both)! Fred is very nice and funny and he told us a lot about the Everglades and it's animals. We also saw alligators and many other native animals (e.g. ospreys). We would not hesitate to book Speedy's Air Boat Tours again and... More

We where on our way to Miami when we stopped in Everglades. Our tour with Captain Fred was the best moment and we also was lucky to see an alligator in action. If You go here so visit Speedy´s Airboat Tour´s and ask for Fred. Whe had a great moment that will last for long. Thanks Captain Fred!!!

Speedy's airboats was great fun for the family. It was a really great way to spend the day and we even saw a alligator! If your going down to the Keys or going up to Miami it's a great place to stop at and I highly recommend it.
