“Airboat ride excellent, board walk average.”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Visiting Florida you just have to ride an airboat don't you? Decided to go with Jungle Erv because it offered a board walk as well. This was a disappointment in that the real highlight of it was watching all the other airboats come in to their docks. The bird talk and the photo op with an alligator were over sold, it seemed that they were there because the owner thought there was nothing else and customers had to see something. However, the airboat ride in the mangroves was excellent, the boat was small holding about 8 of us and although we did not see any alligators the commentary was good and the ride excellent. Having heard about the choices of airboat rides, think we picked the right one.

“Average”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The boat ride was very exciting and the boat Captain was very helpful and informative. We did manage o see three alligators, but they seemed very responsive to marsh mellows?. On the down side the lady on reception was extremely rude, she told my son off for "touching her counter display" it was a magazine, the toilets were disgusting. And I would advise against using them. We were also disappointed that you had to tip the diver and the gator guy, very expensive day, but like other reviews shop around and you will have a good day out

“fun in the everglades”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

As a returning customer I must say that it didn't disappoint at all again.We got good directions from the ladies to go from place to place and they were very nice. We went with capt. james and had a great time the speed was awesome and he can really handle the boat very well. We really enjoyed ourselves doing the the boardwalk and they have a new section added to it. They have moved the gator man to a different spot which is really nice and you can still hold a small alligator and take pictures of each other. We will most certainly be back again with more family.
