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.... « less

My son and I are so glad we went on this tour. We saw lots alligators, turtles and birds plus a few really big bugs. It was amazing to see beautiful gigantic alligators come up right beside the boat, as well as some cute little baby alligators. The tour guide was both entertaining and informative. We got a coupon from... More

We're glad that you and your son enjoyed our tour! We have plenty of big alligators and some small alligators that we've been seeing regularly; yet you never really know what you're going to see! While we do not have any problem with mosquitos, we do have some other big bugs that roam our pristine swamps. Thanks for coming out... More

We chose a company offering a boat to tour the swamps as we wanted to see birds up close, not whizz by. The organisation at the base was good, people were colour coded and quickly loaded into boats when it was your turn. The boat was comfortable, covered and safety concerns addressed about staying seated and children wearing lifejackets. Our... More

Excellent value for money, the tour lasted an hour and three quarters.The guide was knowledgeable, informative and seemed to genuinely enjoy his job which gave the trip a nice atmosphere. Only one downside, you can't just roll up and take a tour. You have to book a reservation using a credit card but then they only take payment in cash.... More

We're glad that you had a great time and enjoyed our pristine swamps. All of our guides are local and grew up playing around in these swamps. While we try to accommodate people who show up without a reservation, it is not advised as our boats do fill up; we wouldn't want you to drive out to us and not... More

Well worth the time and money. Lots of gator activity. Excellent guide! It was a rainy day but that didn't change the tour.

Brian was our boat captain and did a super job of showing everyone in the boat the attractions, including alligators, blue herons, and wild boars. He made sure that both sides of the boat had equal access to seeing the gators take the bait. Super job and super time.

I was skeptical about "swamp" and "alligator" tours... especially with a 3 year old in tow. But, I decided we'd give it a try and am I ever glad that we did. The guide was very knowledgeable, the boat and camp were nice and clean, and there were no bugs! The scenery on the Pearl River was beautiful and the... More

This was AWESOME! We were a little worried because it was raining off and on...actually downpoured as we were boarding. The proprietor said we could come back the next day but he really thought we'd enjoy it even in the rain. We took our chances and went ahead.

We're glad that you enjoyed your tour and we appreciate y'alls business. All of our boats do have tops on them so weather hardly effects us. Some of our best tours are in the rain because it cools down by several degrees while the animals are still out in their natural habitat. We hope to see you again soon! More

We recently stopped at the Honey Island Swamp Tour while passing through on our way to Florida. I highly recommend this tour to ANYONE visiting the area. I honestly expected it to be a bit cheesy and only fun for little kids, but I was so wrong. My 12 year old daughter was the youngest one on the boat. I... More
