“Great Ride for $40 per person”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Captain Shane gave us a wonderful experience with 8 other folks from around the world. An hour ride went for an extra 15 minutes as he took extra time for us to take photos of the aligators and "driving" the boat. Great time - great Capt.

Jungle Erv"s airboats will take you into two different parts of the Everglades. I am so happy you selected the two hour tour.

“"Driver's Work For Tips" add that to the expese of the ride!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

The boat ride itself was great but the people working there seem burned out. Not a pleasant greeting upon entering Boat driver had one joke about not seeing many crocks because they've eaten too many tourists and aren't hungry anymore. Dull dull driver. Big red sign facing you stating that the drivers work for tips. And they "suggest" 15%. So add that to the $160 plus tax for 4 people. Price is high so look for $10 off on one of the brouchurs found in the hotels. Also some drivers smoke while driving. With the beautiful locatiion and fresh air, I wouldn't want someone smoking. The actual boat ride was awesome, especially when it went fast!!

“The best summer adventure!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

My family and I had one of the greatest summer vacations in south florida this year visting the everglades. One of the greatest memories will be the air boat rides at Jungle Erv's. Captain Mke and the othere captains. are very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the plants in the everglades. Great rides and we learn some great interesting things that was a plus.
Great fun I can't say enough. Thanks Jungle Erv's.....

“Fun airboat ride plus boardwalk through the mangroves where we all got to hold a 3 year old alligator.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2012

We showed up without reservations and were on an airboat within 20 minutes. All the staff were extremely friendly and we saw an alligator before we even got on the boat. Captain Mike was very informative and a fantastic airboat operator. He skimmed right next to the mangroves and did a half dozen perfectly executed spins. We saw several alligators, turtles and birds. All in all it was a very fun and informative tour.

Included in the price of the airboat ride was a free visit to the everglades boardwalk. The highlight of the boardwalk was the chance to see alligators up close and actually hold one of the younger gators.

Everyone was extremely friendly and informative. I thought the experience was well worth the $35 (with coupon) we paid.
