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 went to south FL on spring break - busiest time of the year down there. We found a Speedy's coupon in a flyer because it took you to see both the mangroves and grasslands in the same tour. Cost was not cheap, but was the going rate down there. Without a reservation we waited about 40 minutes for our... More

Bill, our guide, knew the area well....we zipped in and out of the mangrove forests, learned about the wildlife and trees, and had a great time. Speedy's is clean, has nice bathrooms, and trinkets you can purchase. I'm so glad I went.

We were told at the hotel we would not need a reservation at this time of year. This was erroneous information and we were told we would have to wait 5 hours-not an option with small children. The girl running the desk needs some computer skills or learn how to schedule. We finally got the time moved up several hours... More

Captain Bill did a great job. He was very knowledgeable and the boat ride was a blast. I would definitely go again.

Lots of fun even though we didn't see anything besides a racoon. Scenery was beautiful. Boats go fast. Tour is one hour long.

Our family enjoyed a trip to the Everglades and went to Speedy's Airboat Tours. They were able to fit us in immediately and were very helpful. We had Captain Kevin. He was outstanding! Very personable and knowledgeable. Highly recommended!

We had the pleasure of taking an airboat captained by Captain Tony...he was knowledgable, friendly, and great fun. We all just loved the fast ride through the mangroves and grasslands, especially the twists and turns. We didn't see much wildlife (the water was too shallow for gators) but still really enjoyed being up close to this really interesting ecosystem. We... More

For us Speedy's was a random choice - they happened to be located right next to our hotel - but they turned out to be just excellent. Our Captain Fred was friendly and fun (and he also gave us an excellent tip where to find the best gator nuggets in town). We found it particularly good that the boats are... More
