We went down to take the airboat tour in the everglades. Really enjoyed our driver, Steve, very knowledgeable. Some great scenery and we can check that one off our bucket list!

“Excellent trip BUT”
Reviewed 21 April 2013

Our family enjoyed the airboat trip with Speedy's Tours, but when we were walking away in the parking lot one of the captain's driving in came flying by us in his large white truck. He was driving way too fast maybe he thought he was driving his airboat. Anyway, slow down there are children and adults out walking in your quiet town.

“highlight of our everglades trip”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

WOW what fun! So worth the cost. family of 4 we had our own air boat and guide. Saw several manatees in the harbor area and then proceeded into glades. As expected there is plenty of noise involved but the boats don’t go all that fast. Guide was very knowledgeable and friendly even stopped midway for pictures in the driver’s seat. Highly recommend this side trip to anyone who is in the Naples area. Make sure you stop by turner river road to check out the gators while your there.

“Airboat ride / tour”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Went for an hour long adventure with hubby, kids 13 and 10, guided by Capt. Shannon. Didn't know what to expect but it was pretty fun! Looked for manatees (didn't see any) but got a great tour - stopped in a nice flat warm area to ask lots of questions which Capt. Shannon answered and was really knowledgeable about the area, habitat and history. Overall great fun!
