Jungle Erv's is an experience that you should not pass up. The Everglades are a fascinating place and this airboat ride lets you see it up close and personal. Captain Duane was our captain for the ride and we stopped several places and he told us interesting facts and history. We saw 2 alligators on our ride and went through... More

Our group wanted to go on airboat ride. Called around to see if we could make a reservation to go. We were coming from cape coral so it was 1-1/2 hr drive and looking to go at 1:00. The person on the phone was really nice to give me directions to a location closer to us and said they would... More

We took the 1 hr airboat tour and had a good time. We didn't see much wildlife, but we were told that when we bought the tickets. We had a good time and the ride was fun. Our guide was very knowledgable and a lot of fun. I would recommend this .

We took the 1 hr tour thrugh the mangroves, It was a blast, our guide was very good and told us quite a bit about the area. Fun way to spend a few hrs. You can also go across the street for a stroll and to see some gators. You can even hold one if you want.

I have been to Florida numerous times over the last 50 years and had never seen the Everglades. This was a great way to experience the Everglades. We did the mangrove tour and the alligator exhibit. I do not like the water much and was scared at first of the boat ride but it really was fine. The driver Bryan,... More

The airboat ride was fun, entertaining, and educational. Capt Shane stopped a number of times to give us an up close look at gators, birds, plant life, and photo ops.

I was here just last week, I was skeptical about it at first. I am not a fan of alligators and being on a boat amongst them had me worried. We did get to see two (very large) alligators on our tours. Along with many species of birds, and plant life. Our tour guide was very informative new all the... More

We enjoyed the 2 hr tour (1 hr ride from town and 1 hr from "wilderness" location. Both drivers were excellent. I was hoping more for grass type ecology on the wilderness tour but it was still mangroves. Both 12 year old daughter and I enjoyed the tour from town location better, but both were great.
