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.

We had a great ride with Captain Bill - our first ever airboat ride for the family! Love speeding through the small tunnels in the mangroves and spinning around in the open areas. Captain Bill points out lots of things to look at and has a great knowledge of the mangroves. Definitely a must to do in the everglades. They... More

It's like a ride at an attraction but real! Amazing scenery and beautiful place. They don't have to share their circuit with any other air boats so you do feel like you are there alone. It's not really for seeing wildlife as it's loud and fast. When we went the rain hadn't really come to bring the alligators out onto... More

We picked Speedy's based on other reviews and glad we did. Capt. Hoss provided a very scenic and entertaining ride with several surprising moments which added to the experience. Managed to get several nice photos as memories,

Place was nice, staff was pleasant, but no wildlife. The guide told us that so many airboats cruise through the same trail that all the wildlife is scared away. Disappointed.

This was our third airboat ride in the Everglades and can honestly say this was the best! Captain Hoss was informative and funny. The ride through the mangroves was awesome,none of the other trips we have taken have ventured into these fantastic trees. Would definitely recommend.

We had Capt. Fred and he was very knowledgable about the Everglades plants and wildlife, had us laughing a lot and gave us a thrilling ride! But he also asked if we were OK with the speed, or if he should slow down - so he's considerate of his passengers. We didn't see alligators because this is the worst time... More

We'd planned a trip down to the Everglades, and this company seemed to be one of the highest rated on this site. We loved it! The service we had was great, including being introduced to the tiny gator in the pool by the office. Captain Steve was very informative, and mentioned to us a couple of areas where we could...

In England qualification to be named as a city is to include a cathedral. In the USA it appears that the qualification is to include an airport, and thereby Everglades City is in. It couldn't have been for anything else! We didn't actually use it or even see it, but the airport's there on Google maps, along with a museum,... More
