I'm a big lover of the Everglades, so I like to take an airboat ride from time to time - they're always a little different from the last. This was a sizzling hot summer day, and the boat was open (no roof or canopy). But once we got zipping along, the heat wasn't an issue. We zoomed along the water... More

We had an airboat ride with Captain John at Jungle Erv's this morning. I am so glad we chose this place as our Captain made it special. i have had rides elsewhere so I can compare this experience. This was the best.

We had an awesome tour with Captain Johnny. I dont know about any of the rest of the guides but Johnny is simply the best. We have been in Florida for over a week and have been on countless tours. This by far was our favorite. Johnny made it very informative and extremely fun. We will definitely be back and... More

Took an hour tour on 7-19-2016. We had a blast!!! Our captain was very knowledgable and knew how to operate the airboat with precision going thru the mangroves! I definitely recommend this tour group!

wonderful tour thru the mangrove tunnels and the beauty was outstanding. Our guide Greg was very knowledgeable and able to weave us in and out of the mangroves without GPS .. Outstanding knowledge of the area. wonderful wild life . The trip was great because of the small grouping. Enjoyed the tour. worth the cost of the trip.

We (parents, 10 yo & 8 yo) did Jungle Erv's airboat tour in June 2016. The tour included first a separate visit to a nice boardwalk over some swamp and an informal exhibit of alligators where the kids got to hold young gators. The airboat tour itself was not exactly what I expected. It was mostly through small twisting channels... More

This ride delivers what is advertised - wildlife, mangroves, colorful guides, and local lore. We particularly enjoyed the smaller ride with only five passengers - the boat can take six. We loved the fact that our guide cited his jobs as Alligator wrassler (wrestler - I guess), Smuggler, Federal Prisoner and Airboat Captain. Our second ride include some large gators... More

We did the boardwalk first and Aligator exhibit, we actually held alligators, we were educated on the area and learnt a lot on the American Aligator fantastic time. The airboat rides was the best we have experienced, we saw a family of raccoons, 2 large Aligator, ospreys, vultures Garr Fish and an awsome fast ride. Fantastic day for anyone.

We had a large group of 16-ranging in age from 9 to 65. The staff at Jungle Erv's were happy to accommodate all of us; and, got us all on at the same time without a reservation. We saw several alligators up close and the airboat ride was fun for all! I only wish I'd remembered bug spray-the mosquitoes caught... More

My husband and I took our very first airboat ride with Jungle Erv's. Our one expectation was that we wanted to see a gator in the wild. And did Jungle Erv's deliver...we saw our first two before we ever got on the boat. They were off of the overlook deck on the side of the shop. Our boat guide was... More
