“Captain Johnny”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

We drove to the everglades and took a trip on an airboat to see the alligators.
We weren't disappointed. Captain Johnny took us on a trip and found us several alligators.
Captain Johnny kept us entertained and answered my grandson's many questions with ease.
It was well worth the drive from Fort Myers Beach for our boat ride with Captain Johnny.
The boardwalk was a bit disappointing. It was a long walk for not much of a show.

“So glad we drove the extra distance”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

Everglades City is truly in the middle of nowhere! Be sure to bring your bug spray! We drove to the initial Jungle Erv's location listed in the tour book. (Be sure to use the coupon!) After booking our 1 hour mangrove tour we were told to drive to another location and had an incredible ride with Captain Johnny. (Be sure to look for the small gator near the boats.) Johnny was fun, personable, and welcomed questions. They give you headphones to cover your ears. (I liked wearing them because they helped me secure my visor.) My daughter counted 11 alligators and Johnny even threw out his cast net and caught a snook to show us what it looked like. Johnny drove the boat with expertise and had us in and out of the mangrove maze and spinning in the open areas. This was a highlight of our trip. After the airboat ride we drove to the third location or the boardwalk where we saw more gators, other airboats heading out (a different tour than we had taken) along the river, a caged in area with small gators and we held Jericho and took pictures. (The alligator skin was so much softer than I had expected!

“Beach Break”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Our family took the 1 hour tour with Capt. Johnny and had a great time. Saw several gators and were taught a little about the history of the area as well as learned about the habitat. A great break away from the sun and the beach traveling through the Everglades on a airboat. It was 94 degrees, but the boat generates enough air to keep it comfortable.

“Good ride in the Everglades”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Me, my wife and two sons aged 21 and 16 had a great ride with Capt. Johnny (at Jungle Erv's). He was very informative and sailed his airboat with excitement. We all had a great time. It was about to rain, but capt. Johnny knew that it wouldn't hit us and it didn't. He also explained the season's in the Everglades to explain why the animals and Everglades are like they are at the time we went.
