Jungle Erv’s Airboat is one of the original airboat tours in the Florida Everglades. Jungle Erv’s family dates back to the 1800s. The family grave site on the island of Fakahatchee is maintained by the national park.
When Jungle Erv was a lad, his dad hunted gator. This provided money and food for the family. His mother traded with the native indians for the deer meat.
Jungle Erv was the only child in first grade. He attended the one room school house on the island of Chokoloskee.
