Captain James at Jungle Erv's Everglades Airboat was seriously the greatest! Such a great tour guide and easy to talk to and ask questions. He was very informative in a fun way! I already want to go back and it hasn't been 24 hours! I will be for sure returning to see Captain James!!

We took an hour long tour with Captain Johnny today and it was INCREDIBLE! We saw lots of gators and learned a ton of new information. This was our first airboat ride as well as our first time visiting the Everglades and we were very impressed. The boat was very smooth and Johnny did a FANTASTIC job. I would definitely... More

We took an hour long tour with Captain Bryan but also got admission to the boardwalk and gator "exhibit". We did that first, as were waiting on our tour time to arrive. The boardwalk is nice; it's a nice little walk but the gators you see on your walk are kept in small, little plastic ponds and they don't have... More

Alligators up close with a guide that´s been around for a while but that close!.We will never forget the marshmallows the crocs loved. Nice to go through the mangrove forests and to speed on the open spaces. Excellent time spent!

We took both the Mangrove Tunnel Airboat ride (guide Bryan) and the Wilderness Airboat ride (guide Johnny). We had a fabulous time! Each ride was an hour long and filled with beautiful scenery, a knowledgeable guide, and exhilarating airboat ride! These guys are local and know the area, care about preserving it, and want you to love it too!

We had a great time (as a family of five) on this alligator boat tour. We had the 90min slot, which was enough time to see an array of alligators in all shapes/sizes/ages. It really was a throughly entertaining tour, with Captain Jonnie showing us just what southern hospitality is. The only reason I haven't rated it five stars is... More
