Got off the boat, got in the car, drove a little way over the bridge and got on another airboat. there we did the exact same thing. this time the... More

Lovely airboat adventure with captain Johnny, and we even got to see a large male alligator up close. Captain was very passionate about what he did for a living and that made the tour all the more enjoyable. Lovely guy who has lived in the Everglades man and boy so he knows it all. He even told us where to... More

Went to Jungle Erv's airboat tours in mid April, which is apparently the worst possible time to see alligators out in the open among the mangroves (the gators apparently move to another area during this time of the year, as the salt water seeps into the mangroves). Still a great visit, though. Our guide and boat captain, Johnny, was a... More

We picked this place based in large part on it's reviews here and weren't disappointed. My son loved seeing the alligators before the trip, though we didn't make it all the way down to the boardwalk (note: double up on the bug spray in that area if you're like me and any insect in the immediate area flocks to you....

Not the cheapest option - 140$ for an hour for four- but good fun! Very informative guide, and fantastic to zip through the mangroves with the sun on your face! Saw manatees, raccoons and black vultures. One of the highlights of our holiday

We arrived around Noon. The first available ride was at 2:00. We purchased our tickets and drove off for lunch. So far so good. Capt. Johnny was great. He knew all about the area and shared information well. However we learned April is not a good time to see Gators. Seems salt water creeps in and the Gators don't like... More

Really really fun - the airboat whizes around at 45mph. However, The Airboat captains stop to feed Coca Cola to the raccoons - I don't think this is right.

Great time with our young kids aged 7 and 9 as well as grandparents 75 yo. Captain James was a great combo of good information, witty jokes, and fast boat driving. Chose the mangrove 1 hr ride which additionally offered a walk on the boardwalk where a very engaging young man gave a good gator demo as well as made... More

Able to get on a ride with very short notice (we called at about 9:30 and got on a 10:45 ride). Amazing how they can navigate the mangrove maze. My teenagers would've liked to take a turn at driving! Be aware that March/April is the dry season so you won't see a lot of alligators, but it is still fun.... More

Capt. Johnny gave us an excellent tour of the Everglades and was very informative about the history of the area and the wildlife we encountered. We would highly recommend Jungle Erv's and Johnny to any visitors to the Naples area
