Last week my husband and I visited Jungle Erv's and decided to purchase 2 one hour air boat rides. (Originally I wrote my review for the wrong airboat business, so am correcting my error by writing this review!) We arrived early in the morning and booked our tours. First we walked through the alligator exhibit (separate cost). The guy working... More

Picked this one because it had a 1.5 hr. Ride. The first half was fun because we had a great driver. We told him we wanted a wild ride, we got wet and loved every minute of it. The second half i could have done without. Saw nothing but mangroves. There was no straight aways to get moving on, just... More

Spent an hour mangroves' airboat tour with Capt. Greg. Greg was not only humorous and a hell of a good pilot, but very knowledgeable about the plant, bird and other wildlife in the area. This is a very interesting ride about Erv's private land that shouldn't be missed.

Well it was a great way to spend the day at Jungle Erv's Airboat Tours 2 days ago. The weather was excellent, the boat captains Bryan and Greg were polite, helpful, knowledgeable, and entertaining. And they are real experts at driving those airboats for the tours. We saw raccoons, alligators, and these exotic birds and ducks. Well I can tell... More

We took the combo tour of the 1-hour Mangrove Trip and the 1-hour Wilderness trip, and the Alligator Show, and boy did we have fun. On the Mangrove trip Captain Brian was excellent, navigating through the mangrove tunnels, doing 360 turns and stopping to see the wildlife. He's been at Jungle Erv's for 17 years and was raised in the... More

Just took the combo tour today of the 1 hour Mangrove trip and the 1 hour Wilderness trip. Both were absolutely wonderful and educational. Not much of a chance to see wildlife as a result of water levels however Captain Bryan and Captain Johnny were both quite informative and shared a great deal of background on the Everglades. My wife... More

The surly woman selling the tickets should have been our first clue not to book this trip. The guide was nice, but definitely not an environmentalist. Without the wildlife, he wouldn't have a job. He complained about not being able to shoot the wildlife. The trips sound great, but they are not what you imagine. The raccoons are obviously fed... More
