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.

Had a great time with CAPTAIN BILL. Very knowledgeable. Made many stops along the route to give history of the area.

Our time at speedy's was absolutely incredible! Our ride was exhilarating as we zipped through the mangroves and Everglades. Captain Reese made our visit the best part of our trip as he educated us on the area's history as well as on the animals that call this environment home; all while giving us the ride of our life! We were... More

Really enjoyed our 1st Airboat Tour with Captain Shane. He was friendly and insightful. Warning - hold onto your hats, as the boat goes really fast at times.

Had a great time with our teenage son! Captain Bill made the trip fun and informative!! We were staying in Marco Island and it was worth the hour drive to do this. If in season, go get some stone crab afterwards, if not, go eat at Sweet Mayberry's.

We had Captain Henry - he was brilliant ! He must do 6 - 8 trips a day, but sounded as enthusiastic as if it were his very first. We saw wildlife ( still can't believe we saw manatees ! ) and given lots of opportunity to ask questions in an area without any other boats around - it felt... More

None of us had ever been in an Air Boat so that alone made the trip exciting. With Captain Hoss as our guide we experienced a great trip. He was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We didn't see much wildlife which was disappointing to some of us. However, the boats are so loud it's understandable. It's not like... More

We had a lot of fun and found Captain Bill to be just as wonderful as explained in the other reviews. He is a very knowledgeable guide and sincerely cares for this special habitat. We appreciated all of the information he shared about the birds, fish, and vegetation. The ride was smooth with just enough of a thrill to please... More
