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.

Don't know why a lot of people are so very enthusiastic about Speedy's. Staff wasn't nice, only during the ride. (to get tips I guess) I think you pay A LOT of money for just an 1 hour trip for spotting 1 gator and mangroves...More

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