While vacationing on Marco Island, my wife and I ventured to Everglades City for fun and adventure. We found it at Speedy's Airboat Tours. Capt. Bill expertly guided us through the nearby mangroves and the open grasslands. He stopped numerous times to give information on the 'Glades, wildlife, etc. A couple of the 360 spins were a blast. Next time we venture down that way, we'll do it again!

We drove down to Speedy's from Sanibel. They were very accommodating with our change of reservation time. Aaron took us through the maze of Mangrove trees. He was fun and informative. He even stopped midway and used our camera to take our picture. He was quite knowledgable of the area and even though we didn't see any gators, he gave us a map showing where to go and we saw a TON there. It wasn't a far drive and quite breathtaking. A definite must if visiting SW Florida

We have taken rides on several other airboats but no one compare to Speedy's. It was absolutely fabulous ! Our Captain Aaron was knowledgable and it was very clear that he loves the Everglades and all it has to offer. He handled the airboat like no other with spins and turns that gave thrills that will last a long time or at least until we go out again withSpeedys. Don' t miss this ride!

Our guide Kevin was very knowledgeable about the area and wild life and showed us a very fun and exciting ride. Also told us where to see live gators in a natural park setting. This was a definite highlight of our trip.
