A Letter From

Jungle Erv

Welcome to the
Florida Everglades!

I am Jungle Erv- son of the alligator man. My great-great-grandfather was a moonshiner and fisherman. My grandfather preached the Gospel to the Islanders. My mother traded deer meat with the Seminole Indians when she was a little girl. My father was the world famous alligator man. Why choose Jungle Erv’s Airboat Tours? My grandchildren are 6th generation Gladesmen. Jungle Erv’s captains are all U.S. Coast Guard licensed. Get the BEST value with our FREE boardwalk and educational gator show. You do not need to sign a waiver to ride on Jungle Erv’s Airboat Tours. Hope to see your smiling faces as we journey through the wild Everglades!
