We stopped here after our trip to the Everglades visitors center. We decided on the 30 minute tour since we had 2 little ones(3&5) and weren't sure how they would do. They ended up loving it! We had Captain Greg who was great. He was super entertaining and was great with the kids. He is a wealth of knowledge about... More

Great time on the airboat ride captain was fabulous. He did lots of fast runs curvy turns and picked out best places for the alligators. He even had a raccoon that came out on a limb and played with my hair. Well worth the drive.

It was our third ride at Jungle Erv's, and I have to admit, the best? We went - like the other times - to the office at the entrance of Everglades City and were a little disappointed to be sent back to the Tamiami Trail office, but the very kind lady promised us then to have a ride with Capt....

Erv took us out for the tour. He could not have been a better guide. We saw a mother/ child manatee, mother/child dolphin, an alligator and a raccoon. Erv got so excited about all the animals we saw that his enthusiasm was contagious. He was also very knowledgeable about the area and has a great sense of humor. Definitely recommend... More

My cousins and I were the lucky ones to have been able to have an airboat ride with Duane !! He was the best. He was so informative and just a great guy. We were surprised that we would see so many gators. We had a blast,even in the heat.

Went on a great airboat ride and had a rare chance to see manatees feeding, raccoons up close and an alligator all due to our great Captain Brian. If you get a chance to take this one hour airboat ride make sure you request Captain Brian. He has over 20 years experience and gave us an exciting ride through the... More

I misunderstood that this was an airboat ride through the mangroves and not the open grasslands of the Everglades but had a good time anyway. I took the 2-hour tour which in this case means you get a 1-hour tour in one place and then drive to another location to see the same thing but a different location. They also... More

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
