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....

What an awesome tour. We were lucky enough to get Captain Gregg. He was informative and funny. He did an awesome job explaining so much and being so knowledgable about the area, the plants, animals, water ways etc. Thank you Captain Gregg. You really made our day. Trish and Tom Loesing

Super cool guides and great fun. This was exciting for Arizonans to see. You saw more than just alligators as well. Highly recommend!

One of the highlights of CAA's Taste of New Orleans tour was our swamp tour. It was amusing to watch the alligators jump for weiners on a stick, bread and marshmallows, but absolutely amazing when the wild boars joined in the feast! Didn't know pigs could swim - they were BIG, black about the size of a black bear! Excellent... More

Our large group of 16 had a private tour of the swamp. The guide assigned to us had grown up in the area and relayed many interesting stories of his childhood in the swamps. He was able to spot numerous interesting things such as snakes, wild pigs, alligators, birds, etc. that we would never have found on our own. The... More

There were 5 of us in our group. The staff was friendly and they ran right on time. Our tour guide Rene was very skilled at handing the boat. We saw Grators, snakes and wild pigs.

We had a wonderful relaxing tour. We saw 4 or 5 small crocodiles, snakes, birds, wild hogs, and other wildlife. The scenery was beautiful. Definitely a must do when costing the area.

My friend and I had a most interesting and unusual encounter on this swamp tour. We couldn't figure out why our tour guide brought a bag of marshmallows with him on the boat until near the end. After seeing much of the plant life and living creatures one would expect to see out on the bayou we encountered a group... More

We were picked up at our hotel in New Orleans in the French district. Driver came early, we were out early, good to go. We picked up two other couples on the way, the driver was very informative. It was worth being picked up for the history lesson we received on the way to the swap. We saw plenty of... More
