Cajun pride, the guide was awesome. This is more a swamp than an idealized bayou (with the cypress with Spanish moss) and we didn’t go all that far. Still the guide let us all hold a baby alligator, he fed the big ones, the alligators are clearly the main attraction. We did have a great time.

Our tour guide was very friendly,informative and well organized. It's was very exciting when you get to see them for the first time. You see gators sun bathing and just resting on the edges of the water. They are pretty active as well. The do feed the gators on the tour so when they hear the boats they become more... More

It wasn't outstandingly interesting but it was fun. Enjoyed looking at the bayou scenery and seeing the animals. Our guide was Cajun all the way through! He added the authenticity to the stories.

We went to the swamp tour during the Mardi Gras time. I know it is not the best time to see alligators, because they are not moving a lot due to the cold water and weather. We did however manage to see some. It was a bit foggy, but the swamp was very quiet and serene, just what you need... More

Booked this the day before we went. You're on a pontoon for about 1.5 hours and the operator shares stories and points out wildlife, various plants and other sites. I learned quite a bit about the swamp! Kids onboard counted over 20 alligators plus turtles, egrets and other types of birds. A bit expensive but fun.

To be honest I booked this tour to keep my burly lads happy watching alligators and swamp stuff and went along with low expectations. I was SO wrong and I am so glad we went. The tour was absolutely fantastic and really professional. Our captain, Brandon, was informative, funny and genuinely cared about the swamp and all the life within.... More

My group of friends were able to book this tour and take it on the same day - although that may sometimes be difficult during peak times. We were pleasantly surprised in that it wasn't terribly far from New Orleans (where we were staying). It was relatively easy and nice to get out of the city for a bit. Captain... More
