Very interesting I was on the same boat as the previous reviewer who had issues with the wild pigs. I too was also told we would see gators and they have been all week. To our disappointment we did not see one. We did see some snakes, lots of birds and lots of hosue's on the water right out of... More

We went on this tour early in the season so the gators were not moving much at all. This tour was awesome, we seen all types of wild life. There were ferrol pigs which the tour guide fed marshmellows so they came right up to the boat. That was really entertaining to me. The guide pointed all the animals out... More

We're glad you enjoyed your tour. Like you had mentioned before, when it is warmer out a lot more alligators will be out and more active. And while everything is completely wild, sometimes we do have snakes that fall into the boat; we do everything we can to keep the wildlife out though! Come back and see us when its... More

While we do not have any Crocodiles in Louisiana, we do have plenty of Alligators, and like you said they do enjoy a good hot dog or marshmallow as a treat.

This was a definite highlight of our trip to New Orleans. The swamp tour van was full, so they sent a cab driven by Lucien Miller to transport us to Slidell. He is a native & gave us a very informative tour of things along the way. An added plus to the swamp tour itself.The boats are small making the... More

Great adventure! We had Captain Cousins and he provide an incredible experience. He was very intelligent and knowledgable and provided an experience in the swamp that was both educational, entertaining and exhilerating. Gained a much deeper appreciation for the swamp, the species that live there, the delicate balance each has and all presented in a fun and entertaining format. Great... More

We had a van pick up up at the hotel and it was about a 40 minute drive to the tour place. The van driver could have talked to us more - it was a pretty boring ride. Once arriving, we got on a boat quickly. The tour was a couple hours and we saw a ton of wildlife-birds of... More

We have been on this swamp tour four times-- the first in Nov 2011, the second in March 2012, third in August 2013 & most recently in March, 2014. Captain Cousins is our favorite-- he is so knowledgeable and the alligators love him. "El Whappo" always comes out for Capt Cousins and you learn so much about the ecology and... More

Your review is a true testament to how we do things here at Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours. While we do cater mainly to tourists, we do have plenty of locals that are looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life; and to learn a little bit here and there!

Early spring in the bayou finds many gators still waking up, but the swamp tour didn't fail to please this suburban KY girl. Our guide made everything about his beloved swamp lands come to life. We watched a gator breech the water for a hot dog. Who knew? Gliding through the bayou past the Spanish moss draped cypress we saw... More

This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to New Orleans. The company will pick you up at your hotel in a van and drive you to Honey Island Swamp (45 minutes to an hour).
