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.

You know when your teenager thinks something was "cool" you made the right choice. The ride was entertaining, exciting and great photo opportunities. We saw a gator and explored the Mangroves. Captain Hoss was funny and a great guide!

The trip was fantastic...Capt. Henry, being a native of the City, was the best we could have asked for...a fountain of knowledge, a thrilling boat captain, and all with a calm demeanor. He is a true asset to the experience!!

We are florida natives but Captain Hoss was awesome. Besides a great airboat ride he knew so much about the Everglades and old Florida. I would recommend this as a must for natives and visitors alike.

Capt Hoss was our guide and did great job describing area and driving airboat. Recommend Speedy's for personal service and local knowledge.

Simple enough, follow the reviews. These guys take you through the mangroves and the open swamp. Hoss was our captain and he did a great job informing us and giving us a great ride!

This was the wrong time of the year to see alligators in this area. However Captain Reese gave us directions to a spot seven miles away where we saw around 100 alligators close up from the car. The airboat ride is just that... More

We have a friend visiting from England and she has never been on an Airboat ride. From what I have read, all the review about your tours were excellent. How long is the tour? How much is it? There would be three of us. We would be coming from Englewood. Looking forwarded to hearing from you folks. Thanks for your information! George

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

Is a one hour ride what most of ur customers go for? Also, we'll be visiting friends in Plantation, FL, then heading back to Ft. Meyers area late morning. About how much time should we allow from Plantation to your dock? (There are two of us.) Thx!!

Sorry, I am not sure how long it will take between the 2 locations. We stayed at the Ivey House across the street.
