Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

Nice trip out into the Louisiana swamp. Everyone polite and friendly and give lots of information with humour as well. It gets very cold on the boats especially when they drive fast, so wrap up warm! Trip is about an hour and a half for $23, which is definitely worth the money. Very popular make sure you book.

Took a morning tour to the swamp and enjoyed the hour-long ride and seeing more of NOLA than downtown. Our boat captain was spectacular, deviating from the usual path so that we might have a chance to see alligators, most in November in hiding. We did see 3 gators and then were whisked to see wild bores. Also saw varied... More

this was neat - we saw a feral hog and a raccoon and the boat driver tossed marshmallows to them both which they ate - lots of beautiful homes and lots of cabins that could use some TLC - one place we pulled in and they pulled up a cat fish and showed us =- we saw lots of birds... More

It would've been a better experience if it wasn't cold that month. Nice scenery and shop. Spaces to eat

Our US road trip continued after Natchez, Mississippi with a few days in Louisiana. My fiancé and his mum had been through Louisiana on a previous trip that was west to east (this time we were doing north to south) and had been on the Honey Island Swamp Tour. They didn't see any alligators but saw plenty of other wildlife,... More

We scheduled the honey island swamp tour that included hotel pickup. We were picked up on time directly in front of our hotel. It took about 50 mins to get to the swamp tour. The office had a tank with a baby alligator & an untidy gift selection. If you can reach the big window in the back of the... More

Because of this time of year the wildlife viewing was low but we did get to see a mess of wild pigs. Our guide was great born and raised in the area so he was a wealth of local knowledge.

If you haven't been on a swamp tour surrounded by alligators the size of small trucks....well, it's an adrenaline rush. Completely safe...if you follow orders.

Our guide(believe his last name was Cousins) provided an interesting array of informative information about the wildlife,history and ecology of the Honey Island swamp. Impressive and fascinating! In spite of it being one of the coldest days of the year, we thoroughly enjoyed the magnificent scenery and narrative.

We had a lot of fun seeing the alligators and other animals. Our guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Would absolutely say that this is something to try for people staying in the area. It was a fun way to see the swamp, and a safe way to see the animals. Don't know howI feel about the disruption of the... More
