I dragged my best friend on the Honey Island Swamp tour. She couldn't believe I took her to the swamp LOL. But we had a great time, I got lots of great photos! Captain Greg was a hoot. I highly recommend you try it!

We had an extremely enjoyable tour. Capt Greg was our guide, he was patient and funny, and very knowledgeable. We saw many alligators, even a couple of feral pigs. Very glad we did this!

I don't even know where to start. This company is absolutely wonderful. I went on the Swamp Tour, and I saw dozens of gators! We also had the added benefit of seeing wild pigs and numerous birds! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Even with 22 people on the boat (actually fewer people than some companies), I could see and... More

We enjoyed our tour on August 16, 2015, our tour guide was entertaining and informative. It was raining that day and we were lucky to be in a covered boat but I have been bragging about this tour. Thank you and we saw a lot of animals at night, creepy but fun.

Fun tour, lots of interactions with alligators, raccoons, feral pigs, birds, and local fishermen. Great guide who was very knowledgeable about the swamp, ecology, and gave great restaurant directions

The whole family unanimously voted a 5 for this tour. The tour lasted about 2 hours, and we saw gators, racoons, feral pigs, and all types of birds and plants. Very interesting tour, and enjoyed by all.

Saw a lot of animals and our guide was friendly and knowledgable. My whole family enjoyed. They brought the animals up closd to the boat on both sides so everyone had a chance to see. Drawback was too many boats in such a small area.

We bought our Cajun Encounters Swamp tour tickets through Groupon, and it ended up being a great value. They picked us up from our hotel in a very nice bus, and drove us to the tour location. The swamp tour was really cool. There were little gators all over the place, and we also saw some egrets, herons, raccoons, and... More

Wow, we had a great time. The guide was very animated and informative. Our group ranged in age from 7 to 68, and we all enjoyed it.
