Great tour. Captain Shane exceeded our expectations Saw plenty of wildlife (gators, manatee) We have been on several of the other airboat tours in Everglades City, but none were as good as Speedy's and Captain Shane. Will definitely be back

This experience with very fun with my kids! Capt. Hoss was very fun to be with on the air boat because he was very friendly and kind and taught us many things I didn't know! I hope if anybody rides an air boat they get Caption Hoss!

Then not 10 minutes later, he mentioned that the salt and fresh water had changed and the alligators had left. This info after the tickets are purchased and we are on the water. The people running this tour knew that. I... More

The concierge at our hotel recommended this Airboat tour. $42 per adult for an hours ride To be honest you could go on any of the rides n the area. They all seem to to use the same route. At times we were waiting for boats from other companies to clear an area. It did feel exactly like it was.... More
