About

The Best Swamp Boat Rides in the Everglades

Jungle Erv has been admired by locals and tourists alike for generations. With his family’s presence in the Florida Everglades dating back to the 1800s, Jungle Erv developed the desire for everyone to experience Florida’s tropical wetlands at an early age. Jungle Erv’s Airboat Tours was born with that goal in mind.

As one of the first businesses to offer swamp boat rides in the Everglades, we have established a well-deserved reputation for providing the best swamp boat tours in the Everglades over the years. All of our captains are area natives, and many of them have served in the United States Coast Guard. They are ready to take you on a boat tour of the Everglades unlike any other you’ll find while keeping you and everyone in your party safe and sound.

A Day to Remember at Jungle Erv’s

We’re committed to enabling our clients to get the biggest bang for their buck whenever they book a land-based safari or a swamp fan boat ride through the Everglades with us. That’s why a free live alligator show and a complimentary tour of our Mangrove Bridge are included in the price of your airboat tour or safari ticket. At Jungle Erv’s Airboat Tours, we don’t want you to just see the Sunshine State’s tropical wetlands. We want you to experience the Everglades and make lasting memories while you do. When you book a tour with us, you’re in for a full day of fun. And you can even hold a live alligator and have your picture taken with one during our alligator show! Give us a call or visit one of our locations in Everglades City to learn more about our safaris, fan boat tours and Everglade airboat tour packages today. Before you book your tour, be sure to print off one of our money-saving coupons so you can redeem it when you pick up your tickets.
