Not sure what to expect as we went on an airboat tour in Panama City and it was just ok. This was completely different and gorgeous! The Everglades are incredible. We had a blast with Fred. Kind of a gruff voice so again didn't know what to expect but he was so knowledgeable and funny. What a great time. So... More

Captain Aaron made our trip to Speedys very fun and enjoyable. He was very knowledgable and shared stories of living in the Everglades in addition to showing us the Everglades. He even spotted tons of wildlife for us!!!!!! If you are going to do an airboat tour, Speedys is the way to go!!!!!

We had the most wonderful time with Captain Hoss. He was very informative on the nature that is the Everglades. Very funny man, personalable and quite the jokester. We didn't want our adventure to end. Captain Hoss definitely made our trip worth while! Great guy and was very nice to my little girl, we will absolutely be going back!

Speedy's is the way to go. They have access to areas that other air boat companies don't so makes the ride that much better. Ask for Captain Hoss!!
