Captain Shane was wonderful. So friendly and so fun. When we come back, we'll definitely get Shane again. He took out the gator for us to see and let us hold it. Also took the time to show us where all the good tourist sights are on a map. Loved him!

Captain Bill took four of us for a fun airboat ride. Although we didn't see any alligators, he stopped and told us interesting stories. The ride through the mangroves and grasslands was very enjoyable.

Something totally unexpected was the speed of the boat!! And fortunately the skill of the captain. He took us through some amazingly narrow canals and over swamps...wind in the face, noisy and great fun. Stopped occasionally to hear about the wild life and history of the area. No gators but that is luck of the draw! Well worth it.

From the first phone call to stepping off the airboat this was an amazing experience. The staff at Speedy's was friendly and inviting. Captain Bill was informative and made our tour fantastic. Speedy's airboat tour takes you through a private track of land that they own so you can truly enjoy the experience without lots of other airboats around. Thanks... More

When our children were young we took them on Speedy's Airboat Tour. We loved it. Good to see a decade plus later they are still here and providing a great airboat tour. Our driver Bill was awesome. And how nice to find he was a Michigan native as we were. Small world when we only lived 30 miles apart.

You shouldn't miss it. It was fun and fun and we also were lucky to see an alligator. I wished to do that the whole day. What an experience!

An exciting drive from Naples along the famous US41 and then into Everglades City. Speedy's Airboat Tours were recommended by our hotel and likewise we would recommend them to anyone looking for some fun. We will not give too much away but following the signing of an indemnity agreement removing liability away from Speedy's should you be struck by lightning... More
