Definitely a thing to do. Great experience, personal attitude and a lot of fun - more than I expected. You can't expect a lot of animals on airboats, but you will find out a lot about the place & mangroves. Captain Henry was awesome -...More

We were on the boattour with captain Bill with two children, one 5- and one 2-year old. Due to lack of rain the water was too salty for the alligators, but Bill made our tour great anyway. He stopped the engine from time to time...More

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

We have a friend visiting from England and she has never been on an Airboat ride. From what I have read, all the review about your tours were excellent. How long is the tour? How much is it? There would be three of us. We would be coming from Englewood. Looking forwarded to hearing from you folks. Thanks for your information! George

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

Is a one hour ride what most of ur customers go for? Also, we'll be visiting friends in Plantation, FL, then heading back to Ft. Meyers area late morning. About how much time should we allow from Plantation to your dock? (There are two of us.) Thx!!

Sorry, I am not sure how long it will take between the 2 locations. We stayed at the Ivey House across the street.
