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.

A trip worth doing through the mangroves and sawgrass. Takes 45mins and is one of those experiences you need to tick off the list!

It was about $43 a ticket. There was a $5 coupon when you google Speedys. The boat ride was 1 hour.
