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....

This was our first swamp tour and it was great. Captain Jack was a fabulous guide, you can tell he loves the area. He found alligators and brought them right up to the boat even getting them to jump for food. The amount of information he gave was outstanding. We also saw a Blue Heron catch a fish, lots of...

We intentionally booked a hotel in Slidell on our return home so we could try to make this tour. Our arrival time was not set, so as soon as I was sure we would make it, I called to see if they were doing any more tours for the afternoon. (If not, I would book for in the morning instead.)... More

This was my second trip to the Honey Island Swamp tour. I had been about 11 years ago, before Hurricane Katrina, with my parents and returned again this June with my own little family! We have 3 small children, aged 5 and under, and they all enjoyed it! We saw lots of alligators, that came right up to the boat... More

The Honey Island Swamp Tour was well worth our time and the price we paid. We needed to be there 30 minutes ahead of our scheduled tour (we had reservations). Remember to bring cash as that's all they take. The tour took us northwest a short ways down two side channels of the Pearl River, where we saw a number... More

This tour is a must. What a great learning experience with a highly knowledgable and scientifically accurate tour guide. For a few hours we were able to experience life in the swamp and shed any preconceived notions that we had thanks to Hollywood. We saw alligators, snakes, birds, turtles, and the beautiful cypress trees that reside in the swamp. Great... More

I think any time spent on a boat is a good time; however, the Honey Island Swamp Tour made for a great time! I was amazed at the beauty and abundant wildlife that I saw, and also got a glimpse of a different style of life on the river. We had some kids on the boat who thoroughly enjoyed themselves,...

My husband and I took this tour during our vacation to New Orleans. It was an easy drive to and from New Orleans, although they will provide hotel pick-up if you prefer. We made reservations a day ahead of time and arrived plenty early, as directed. We were able to use a discount coupon I found in one of our... More

I took this outing with my father (his third time on this tour) who lives in Gulfport, MS, and it was great. It was a beautiful day there, and our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the ecology and history of the swamp. It was truly a fun and educational experience with lots of alligators and wild pigs. If you are... More
