The company runs a first class adventure for the whole family. It is simple to get there with it being just several miles off I-10. If you have never had an up close encounter with an alligator than visit here and you will. Captain Sonny was very entertaining as well as informative of all things within his swamp and river....

Capt. Ryan was the best. He seemed very knowledgeable about the swamp and wildlife. There was lots of gators, pigs, turtles,snakes, birds and so on. Well worth the price.

Captain Ryan is the definition of Southern Charm!! He made the tour fun and informative. He shared with us the history of Honey Island Swamp and the impact Hurricane Katrina had on the area. We saw lots of alligators including a 10 foot alligator that Captain Ryan called Lola! The two hour tour was the highlight of my weekend trip... More

This has been the highlight of our trip! I wasn't looking forward to this, but I knew my husband has always wanted to do it. I was terrified !!!! But it turned out to be the most exciting and educational fun experience . I felt safe, and the beauty of it all. Spectacular. Worth every penny and then some!!!

We had a great time with Cajun Encounters on Saturday. We opted to drive from our hotel in Metairie and it took about forty minutes to get to the Cajun Encounters ticket office. There was plenty of parking on site and we arrived before the tour vans that picked people up from hotels in New Orleans, so the queue at... More
