I don't remember our drivers name, but he sure gave us a thrill ride. This ride was the highlight of my Fla. vacation, something I have always wanted to do, so much fun and daring. I'm glad we only took the one hour ride, as all we saw were Mangrove trees, which of course was awesome and interesting. Stopped to... More

My husband and I are in our 60's and this is our first trip to the Everglades. Thanks to the other contributors to this site, we targeted Jungle Erv's and took the one-hour Mangrove Tunnel Tour, which also provides access to the Boardwalk. Went to the Boardwalk first; no one else was there and we had a great chat with... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Everglades! Our tour guide was extremely entertaining and funny. The pontoon ride was exhilarating and getting to hold live baby alligators was thrilling. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Florida.

We were excited to ride our first ever airboat and selected Jungle Erv's last Saturday. The boat was clean and the ride was fun. Be prepared that the ride is only through the mangroves and not the typical everglades scenery. The captain did make it fin and we found a couple small gators.

We did the one hour tour about 10 minutes drive outside of town. We had the boat to ourselves and Greg was a great captain with lots of local knowledge. We saw Charlie the alligator and lots of different birds. Greg was very entertaining and a skilled handler of the airboat. I had always wanted to go in an airboat... More

Went on the one hour trip with Mike as our guide. Never been on an air boat before. What a ride! That boat can fly. ( It has a 454 motor in it which thrilled my hubby!) Mike put the boat into a spin several times and it was awesome. Saw many gators but not much else as far as... More

We went on an airboat trip with captain Ryan who is a really experienced and trustworthy captain with a good eye for the wildlife. We saw manatees, alligators (2), piranhas and a lot of birds. Our three children (14,12,8) were thrilled by the speed we drove with. Better than Disneyworld! Afterwards we went on the boardwalk to an alligator farm... More
