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....

We visited the Honey Island Swamp Tours on the last day of our NOLA trip. The 2 hour boat trip with Captain Greg was so much fun. He fed the gators with sausage and marshmallows on a stick, seemingly the reptiles loved it. The trip was very interesting and informative, and quite an international team we had on the boat....

So we booked this trip online at viator.com (this is a fraudulent website using this company to get clients ..Avoid at all cost! ) Got to Honey Island explained everything and Captain Jack was more upset than us. He gave us a free tour and tshirt. All of the staff was friendly and professional down home guys. We highly recommend... More

This is a wonderful tour. Everytime we have company we take them on this tour and we never get tired of it. Guides are very knowledgeable.

Tour with Charles was outstanding -we really benefitted from his humour, his local knowledge and description of the area, its wildlife and the issues affecting the area and all the inhabitants. Would definitely recommend.

Was actually nervous about who to pick for the bayou tours - a lot of conflicting reviews out there. Glad we settled on Dr. Wagners. Not a fan bout but still large and fairly fast - you get to see the bayou in a bunch of different ways - huts and decaying huts - narrow entryways - lots of gators... More

Such a wonderful tour of the swamp... Captain Brent took us out on the small air boat and we loved it. We just missed getting rained on, had the entire boat to ourselves, and got to see so many alligators... Definitely recommend this tour! It's so worth it.
