We had a nice warm sunny day to sightsee the alligators. This was a fun tour and we saw lots of them! Some got very close to our boat. The captain threw white marshmallows into the marsh to attract the gators. ..and it worked. I was wearing a white baseball cap and sat near the edge on the boat. Some... More

We found Jungle Erv's without it being planner, checking reviews, or anything of that sorts. We stopped at an information stop and they had a flyer, the price seemed reasonable so we decided to do it and it was the first one once we went down the road.

We had the pleasure to have Captain Brian today for our tour. He was very informative and his knowledge of the surroundings made the tour well worth it. It was one of those things you do in life and are glad you did it.

Seems to be so many reviews that say how great Captain Johnny is. Well we got Captain James. I certainly wouldn't be raving about him, however the experience was still good. We did the 1 hour mangrove tour and the scenery was amazing, saw plenty of gators and other animals and whizzed around at top speed. My only negative comment... More

Really knowledgable guy, Captain Jonny. Spent an excellent hour with him last week, my family and I. Saw six crocs. Tour HIGHLY recommended.....their Boardwalk attraction.....not so much. Thought it was a bit cruel having so many crocs in close proximity to each other.

We did the 2 airboat rides and enjoyed them very much. Exhilarating experience, and Johnny went out of his way to give us an excellent experience. He is very knowledgable about the area and wildlife. We were so pleased we took this tour.

We did the 1 hour mangrove tour. Saw plenty of alligators up close, some racoons and even a manatee with her baby. Loved the speed through the mangroves and turns out in the open. Great tour.
