Very short tour, no alligators, no wildlife. You see a swamp and that's pretty much it. Not sure what the $40 was for.

We had Captain Bill. Bill was fantastic. We took the 9 am tour and were the first on the water. We saw abundant wildlife. Tons of birds, plenty of fish, quick view of a manatee. Bill took frequent breaks and explained the wildlife and history. Very knowledgeable. Very safe. Lots of fun for the kids and family.

It was a great experience. The lady I talked to on the phone to make a booking was very helpful. We flew into the little airport, and they sent someone to pick us up, and send us back. The driver was quick to arrive, and even stopped on the way back so we could get ice cream. The airboat ride... More

What a great tour! Captain Hoss was very knowledgeable, considerate and courteous. He had a great sense of humour. He went out of his way to show us an alligator that was housed on the property and provided us with a map to further our tour in the Everglades. We will definitely bring all our company for a tour and... More

We had a great tour with Shane this morning. Didn't reserve ahead of time and were lucky enough to have the boat to ourselves. Shane threw out his knowledge of German for my german visitors and took the time to stop point out good picture opportunities and even to take pics of all three of us. A very enjoyable ride... More

We had a fantastic ride with Captain Hoss. He was very knowledgable about the Everglades, gave us multiple opportunities to ask questions and gave us an exciting ride. Would recommend to others and definitely tell them to go to Speedy's and ask for Captain Hoss.

We had a group of 10, including 5 kids ages 9-12. We were able to reserve 2 boats and we had a great time. Both Captains were informative and entertaining! The boat ride was a blast, the kids loved every minute. February isn't a good time of year to see alligators in the Everglades, but Capt Hoss recommend a nature... More
