We drove here looking for a nice family outing, and we were not disappointed. We took a boat tour, that lasted just over an hour, in the Atchafalaya Basin Swamp. Our guide, provided jokes and history of the Atchafalaya. Before the tour, we ate at the restaurant inside. The food was good and we didn't wait long to be served.... More

McGees Landing is a great place to visit. Swampy land doesn't get much better than this. We visited on a beautiful winter afternoon. The sun was shining and we enjoyed the warmth. Ducks flew overhead and the bayou glistened in the sunlight. Beautiful.

This is the second time we have been to McGee`s landing and we loved it just as much as the first, we even had the same guide and the same jokes but still funny and an excellent guide. The scenery is stunning and the wild live is plenty-full the alligators come to the boat if you speak French to them... More

My Wife and I were traveling with another couple and wanted to do Lafayette and see a smaller City before NO. Our Friends have never been on an Airboat Tour before. We have in the Everglades. It is a rush. I contacted Shelby at McGee's and she was fantastic even sending a confirmation so that we knew we were booked.... More

Recently took one of McGee's swamp tours out onto the swamp - the trip was about 1hr 30mins and we went all the way under the I-10 and beyond! We had a very knowledgeable guide about the area and its flora and fauna, and he took us the places to see alligators. We were not disappointed and saw quite a... More

One of first boat launches on the west side of the swamp. They offer tours of the swamp out of the main building which also has the restaurant. Tour groups seem happy, we see them while we launch or pull out. Have not eaten at the restaurant but here from locals that it is a good place to eat.

THey have swamp tour and airboat tour. Airboat was super fun. They take you to alligators territory. Though there aren't much alligators in this area but we did see male 14 ft , female 8ft alligator with thier baby alligators. The cypress tree looked amazing in this achafalaya basin. It was fun.. Must do. It was 1.5 hr airboat tour.... More

The only word our "guide" said to us was an unenthusiastic "hey". Maybe I misunderstood what should have been expected, but there was no history of the area, no anecdotes, no corny jokes. Unless they get some new guides I will not be back.
