Captain Ryan was great. You can tell he has a real passion for the swamp. He was knowledgable and he made it a lot of fun. Saw several gators ... Awesome time ! A must if you are in New Orleans ..

The swamps are absolutely gorgeous and definitely worth the ~4 hour trip (2 hours are spent getting from NO to the boat and back and the boat trip is another hour and 45 minutes). We highly recommend the 5pm tour - the light is beautiful, the temperature nice and we had lots of alligator sightings. Our captain was Ryan and,... More

Captain Ryan was great on our swamp tour! We saw alligators up close while learning about the swamps! He was very informative while having a great sense of humor as well as being great at driving the boats.

We went on a swamp tour and had Captain Ryan. He was AMAZING!!! He truly made the tour 100x more enjoyable. You can definitely tell that he loves his job. I truly believe he is what made our tour so much more enjoyable. I will most definitely be coming back and requesting him.

Capt. Ryan was awesome! I learned so much from him, he was fun, entertaining, and he did such an amazing job getting the alligators to come right up to the boat. Most of the time when you see an advertisement for alligators, they are either stuffed and Dead or you don't even get to see them. If you want up... More

I've lived in NOLA for years and until recently I'd never taken the Cajun Encounters Swamp Tour. I see the Cajun Encounter buses all over town but I always thought that they were only for tourist. I could not have been more wrong. The Swamp Tour was a blast! I went recently with a bunch of my friends to celebrate... More
