Need to preface this review with the fact that my family and I have lived in this area for over 20 years. So the swamp is not a new experience for us. I would like to thank our Captain for a great tour, good company, and knowledgeable insights. Yes, I even learned a few things I didn't know. Capt. Greg... More

My wife and I took an evening swamp tour which was completely awesome... We got to see alligators, raccoons, big wolf spiders, a Herron hanging out in a Cyprus tree... The swamp is totally peaceful at night... Our guide was Captain Ryan who was awesome as well... Not only was he charismatic but he also knew and understood the swamp... More

Do not miss this! Great boat trip through a beautiful swamp. Captain Ryan was awesome... Very knowledgable and funny. We saw alligators, turtles, raccoons and birds. Great value for the money. Good for any age!

This was the highlight of our trip to Louisiana. The tour guide was knowledgeable and personable. We saw many alligators, pigs, turtles and other wildlife. It was a very interesting tour. The scenery is beautiful. Highly recommend.

We had a great time with Cajun Encounters and Capt. Greg! It was very educational and we saw tons of wildlife! Capt. Greg knows his information and was so funny- made the tour really fun and interesting. Would highly recommend for future tours and would love to come back.

We had a great time on the two hour morning tour! We saw a lot of alligators, turtles, raccoons, and even wild boar. To top it off, the scenery was simply amazing! I also have to give a shout out to captain Greg for making the experience extra memorable! Thank you for a great time! Highly recommend to anyone! Chuck

I was not super excited when my friend suggested we do this tour, but I'm glad we did. Getting there takes awhile as we were picked up at our hotel around 1:30pm only to be driven to the location approximately 45 min away to then stand in a long line to pay & get a wrist band. We were grumbling... More

We were picked up in downtown New Orleans by the company's bus and taken out to their base. The driver was entertaining and pointed out things along the way (A 5 mile long bridge for example). The boat trip was amazing, I am embarrassed to admit I forget the name of the captain, but his voice appears on the gruesome... More

We were in the FQ for a week -- right in the center of it all. Our nighttime swamp tour ended up being one of the best things we did on our vacation! We've taken a couple of daytime swamp tours, but this was our first night experience. While we were waiting for our tour, we wandered down to the... More

This was a great tour. CAPT Ryan was charming and knowledgeable. The swamp is beautiful and Capt Ryan directed us to many other creatures.
