Our 1.5 hour pontoon boat tour was fantastic. Our captain, Nolan, was a retired NOLA firefighter from the bayou who obviously loves swamp wildlife and the Cajun culture. Going in mid-April meant terrific weather...and NO bugs, which Nolan says is just a Hollywood myth (mosquitos need standing water to breed, and the swamp is constantly flowing). We were hoping for...

The driver who picked us up at the hotel was very friendly and provided some information about Hurricane Katrina and pointed out things along the way.

We stopped in for a tour and was able to get in without an issue. Brandon was our guide and he was very informative and funny. Although I grew up in Louisiana, I still learned a great deal on this tour and I recommend taking the tour to everyone!

We decided to take this tour while travelling through the state. It was a little pricey but very good. Our tour guide, Brandon was very knowledgeable and passionate not only about alligators, but about the other animals that lived in the area, and the area in general. He had some live animals such as native non-poisonous snakes and turtles that... More

Had been introduced to this place when visiting a friend. Decided to bring my children. They enjoyed the gators, raccoons and hearing the history. Was a great experience even the second time.
