Highly recommend Speedy's for an airboat tour in the everglades! Captain Fred was so knowledgeable about the ecosystem and he made for a fun and thrilling ride! We did the 9:30am tour and had the boat to ourselves! It's worth the drive to get out there early before anyone else. Speedy's is the ONLY company that can take you through... More

Captain Fred was awesome! The ride was interesting, fun and exciting. He was full of information about the area and injected humor into his stories. We were told about Speedy's from our hotel and were not disappointed. We went through both the mangroves and grasslands in our one hour trip. We highly recommend Speedy's and be aure to ask for...

Captain Fred made the tour trilling and informative. This was our family's first experience on an Airboat so we were surprise of the outcome. The ride was trilling with twists and turns as we traveled through the mangroves & grasslands looking for allegators. The captain was informative and had a great sense of humor. I recommend Speedy's Airboat Tours and... More

Second time we have gone with 'Speedy'and still as excellent as ever. Thanks to Capt.Fred we were taken through the tunnelled mangroves & grasslands. He was very knowledgable & enthusiastic about the area. Would recommend this tour & will return again some day. Thanks Captain Fred for an excellent trip.

Very fun and informative airboat tour. We saw aligators. The boat ride was impressive, it was fairly 'speedy' but felt safe at all times. The captain was very helpful and funny. Well worth the money - would recommend!

We loved Aaron! He was so informative and nice to everyone on the boat. I usually would be very nervous on an airboat, but you could tell he was extremely experienced with not only the boat, but every turn on the ride. I would recommend Speedy's as the ONLY airboat tour to take advantage of in the Everglades, and Aaron... More

We arrived at speedy's just before a storm and had to wait for it to pass, so we visited Ted Smallwoods store while the storm passed. On our return to speedy's Capt Bill took us out, for out flight around the everglades. We have been on many Airboat tours over the years but this has by far been the best.... More
