We had a great airboat ride. Greg was great. His was funny and gave us a thrilling ride. It felt alot like spinning a Seadoo. After the ride we went to the "Boardwalk" and we were able to hold a 4 foot gator and take. It was a great day.

We had a most enjoyable and entertaining airboat ride with Greg. Would recommend requesting him as your guide. He has vast knowledge of the everglades and all the wildlife that reside there. He totally cares about the environment and all the wildlife that he lives among. He was very entertaining...check him out on your next ride...you won't be disappointed!!

Fun, safe & somewhat aggressive ride through mangroves. We did both 30 and 60 minute tours. All said 30 minute was better for the kids. The more you interact with the Captain the better your trip will be. They have forgotten more about the Everglades than most "experts" know.

This was a great, fun airboat ride. Greg was awesome. He gave great details and info on the wildlife in the region, the Everglades itself. He was entertaining and informative. Would definitely recommend Greg to anyone going on this tour. Well worth it. Family of 5. Fun, fun, fun.

Greg was our boat driver and was very knowledgeable with the right amount of humor mixed in. The tour was a little pricey but in line with the other tours in the area.

This was an expensive way to drive around in the everglades. The boat ride was fun but it wasn't educational after the first ten minutes. It's only worth it if you want to see how easy it is to get lost in the everglades or to rip around in a loud motored boat.

Prior to taking the boat tour we went to their gift shop with attached boardwalk that led to where they had "pet" alligators for show and tell. We got to touch Lucky their 4 year old alligator and learned about him and the alligators habitat. We also had an opportunity to take pictures holding baby gators. On the boat tour... More

Traveled with friends on the airboat tour. It was a fun ride and our guide explained the different types of mangroves in the area.

Our second trip to Jungle Erv's. The kids requested it and we obliged. A sweet girl named Amber took care of us at the front desk. Please note the website takes you to the location on Collier Avenue. The actual airboat part is 3 miles away on Tamiami Trail. A little confusing. We requested Johnny. I nicknamed him "handsome Johnny"... More
