We did this tour with Captain Aaron and we could not have asked for a better captain! He was extremely knowledge about his surroundings and he took extra time at the end of the tour to see a manatee! We even got our pictures taken in the captain's chair! Highly recommend the tour and Aaron!

We did this tour with Captain Fred. He was pleasant and well spoken. Not only was the ride fun but Fred was knowledgeable and informative about the Habitat and wildlife. We saw an Osprey and quite a few birds. We stopped in a small cove where a "Friendly" alligator swam up to the boat for a look see. You can't... More

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

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
