Airboat Tours in the Everglades

By Jungle Erv January 10, 2019

There are countless ways to take a tour of the Everglades. Helicopter tours. Multi-day kayak excursions. Skydiving from the clouds above and watching the mysterious, breathtaking land come at you at 120 mph. But we like our option better. An airboat tour through the ‘glades is a safe, affordable, accessible adventure that lets you see the natural beauty of the area up close. Plus, you can select the airboat adventure that makes the most sense for your interests and schedule.

Mangrove Canopy Airboat Tours

Our hour-long Mangrove Canopy Airboat Tour is a great way to get a feel for the personality of the Everglades. Hop in a boat and one of our coastguard-certified captains will take you on the ride of a lifetime, zipping around under the canopy of mangrove branches. Mangroves are some of the most incredible trees in North America; they grow in salty water, extracting the freshwater they need from the salt waters around them and gathering nutrients from the fine sediments that sift to the bottom of the waterways. After your mangrove canopy airboat tour, stop for an educational Alligator Show and a walk on Jungle Erv’s Boardwalk for no extra charge!

Wilderness Airboat Tours

If you really want to get away from it all and experience a thrilling Florida Everglades ride through the wilderness, hop on one of Jungle Erv’s airboats for a Wilderness Airboat Tour on our own sanctuary land. No one else gets to see this pristine, carefully-preserved land except our airboat guests, so settle in and get ready for an adventure that will make you feel like you’re among the first explorers to experience the mystery of the Everglades.

Family-Friendly Airboat Tours

Have kids along for the ride? Our Family Airboat Tours cater to the needs and schedules of those with smaller kids! Whether your smaller traveling companions are two or twelve, they’ll be as enthralled by the experience as you are. You can count on Jungle Erv’s to deliver the BEST tour of the Everglades!

A Company With Deep Roots

A lot of companies offer Everglades airboat tours, but not many have roots as deep as Jungle Erv’s. Jungle Erv’s great-grandfather crafted moonshine and fished the waters of the ‘glades; today, his great-grandchildren are sixth-generation gladesmen learning a love and respect for the land from the generations that went before them. All of Jungle Erv’s boat captains are passionate about the conservation and protection of the Everglades, and they’re brimming with knowledge about the area as well- the perfect tour guides, if you ask us. Contact us today to reserve your spot on one of Jungle Erv’s airboat tours!
