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.

I visited the Everglades on May 2015 to see animals that I don't see in London. After the animal park, I went on these airboat tours. We had front seats and had to put these headphones on our ears as the engine was loud. I...More

Life is fun on an airboat and the guide was entertaining. Managed to find two alligators and a well perched Osprey. Also, they were next to an excellent seafood restaurant so it was easy to grab lunch beforehand.

Researched long and hard for a "non-touristy" airboat experience and wasn't disappointed, thank you Captain Jeff! Loved the genuinely funny commentary and insight to the alligators and mangroves.

We went at 10:30 to minimize the risk of a pop-up thunderstorm which would have cancelled the trip. Other than Ryan, earlier is a little cooler, later just as good but much warmer

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

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