Exciting airboat ride through mangrove tunnels; you see wildlife AND tear around at what feels like top speed! Fast enough to having me laughing out loud in pure joy! Manatees and raccoons were the wildlife on this particular trip. Captain Bryan gave us more than our $$'s worth. I will definitely be bringing future out of town guests to Jungle... More

This is a Great way to see the Everglades. The staff are very experienced and entertaining. They sure know how to handle the boats. I was surprised not to see any alligators but understand we were not in the right season.

The trip we wanted was sold out so we took an alternative trip at a remote site. The water is very low and the boat seemed to be pushing mud most of the time. Not their fault because the weather has been dry but no mention of this before tickets were purchased. The driver did a great job despite the... More

We did the 1 hr ride with captain Greg he was great. Very informative and knowledgeable. He was very accommodating to my 2 yr old who was a little nervous at first. She very quickly warmed up and enjoyed herself. She was able to touch and hold a snake on the boat. He was so patient and kind. Definitely a... More

This air boat tour was interesting. Captain was very friendly and knowledgeable. They also gave us a free pass to see alligators. We learned a lot about alligators. We also were able to hold a baby alligator. There alligators were not wild. Great experience!

I had a blast with Captain Greg. It was like he was showing us his back yard. Well, that because he was! Unfortunately, the gators and crocs were done for the day, but we saw plenty of waterfowl and spent a few minutes trying to spot a python known that has been found in the area. Greg was very knowledgable... More

I've done this ride in the Everglades National Park. We drove down from Ft Myers for other sightseeing so we did not go all the way into the park, but to give my family this experience we chose this company. Yes the ride was lots of fun on a beautiful afternoon but we did not see too much wildlife. Our... More

This is my second time at Jungle Erv's, my first visit in 2016 was 5 stars. This time I had a lukewarm boring "tunnels" ride with Andy (I'd give him 1 star). We were looking for a fun, fast boat ride not watching a Mannatee SNOUT come up for air every three minutes, killing 15 min of fun. Also feeding... More

Great airboat ride and our captain was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Pointed out lots of interesting things. After the ride we walked the board walk to see the gators and even held a small one. The guide there told us all about them and answered all our questions.

I've always wanted to do a airboat ride, so my husband and I checked out several places and settled on Erv's because everyone was super friendly. We did the 2 hour ride. The first hour was with Captain James, he was awesome and lots of fun. The second hour was with Captain Mike, through the mangroves, he was super fun... More
