Wasn't really sure what to expect of this tour and thought it might be a bit cheesy, but we loved it! One of the highlights of a very fun first-time trip to NOLA. Definitely do this tour. It's worth the money. We had Captain Henry and he was the best. When all of the boats zipped off one way, we... More

The tour was exactly what I expected in terms of what I saw: alligators, pigs, birds, and even a raccoon. If you ask questions, the tour will be 10x better. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining, but I actually can't remember his name.

Captain Henry didn't disappoint as we saw loads of alligators, wild hogs, birds, and turtles! He weaved his way through the river, swamp, and marsh all while deftly explaining the differences between them and the animals that call the respective habitats home. The boat was comfortable and when he opened up full speed on the river, the wind felt wonderful... More

Very enjoyable tour and having captain Bishop at the helm made it more so. We saw many gators, Betty, Lola, one eye jack and many more. Lovely water ways and wildlife. Highly recommend.

Even though we are from Florida and have seen all of the wildlife on multiple occasions, this tour was still a lot of fun! We enjoyed Captain Greg's humor and found the trip down the bayou to be a neat and informative experience. Would have liked a little more time feeding the gators, though. 🐊

Captain Greg was AWESOME!!!!!!! Very funny! Wish we could have seen more alligators or snakes etc... but it was ok... Still a great experience. However, while shopping for souvenirs we over heard guys talking about women never tip!!! Some guy named Troy!! Anyway would I come back? Yes! Would I tip? (I always do) Absolutely..Captain Greg that is :)

What a day ! I was so hesitant to go but am so glad I did. We were lucky enough to have Captain Gregg. He was so knowledgable and funny. He knew so much about the terrain, the wild life, the plant life and the history of the area. My husband and I truly enjoyed this tour and would recommend... More
