Tried several, finally found the ultimate Airboat Experience! Jungle Erv's gives a step by step journey into the river of grass and mangroves know as the everglades. Capitan Danny could not have made the ride any better. We also had the chance to hold a Gator at their Boardwalk after the boat ride. Awesome!!

Captain jonnie was such a great air boat captain, he knew where the alligators "hang out" spots are. He was very informative and fun. I highly recommend Jungle Ervs in the everglades, and jonnie for your captain

“Knowledgeable staff, fun morning with the family”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Our airboat driver was very knowledgeable about the area and how to drive an Airboat. He went out of his way to stop and find gators on our tour. They have an exhibition only open to the people who take their tours where you learn about and get to hold a real live alligator! TIP: we were told by our hotel staff to go early on a sunny day to see the most gators. Also, bring cash...jungle erv's "suggests" a 15% tip to the Airboat driver which for our family of 5 was another $30. on top of the $185. we already paid. Also, go to your local shops...there are discount coupons all over the place!

“Fun captain, away from the crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

We had Captain Johnny and an hour long tour near Everglades City. Despite being the off season, we saw quite a few alligators, and Johnny was friendly, knowledgeable and fun. We didn't see any other airboats while we were out, unlike some other "conveyor belt" tours we saw later. He explained about the water and mangrove environment as well as the wildlife, and we had a really good time. He was great with our kids (11 and 8) too. Definitely recommended.

My family and I went on an airboat Tour with Captain Johnny and we had a wonderful time. We saw several aligators and Johnny told us everything worth knowing about the Everglades and the alligators. He was extremely entertaining and cool.
