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

Great tour and the driver who picked us what was funny and knowledgable. Saw a few alligators, raccoon, turtles and blue herons. Surprised how beautiful and peaceful the swamps are. I would recommend highly.

We had a great time with Charlie today on a full but not crowded covered boat. It was our first swamp tour as we are from Vancouver, BC, Canada. Highly recommend it for everyone. Almost two hours and not a boring minute. Trip Advisor 2014 award and well deserved. We would go again!

Dr wagner's We have done the swap tour over in Lafayette and enjoyed it but was a little disappointed only seeing one small gator at some distance. Now back in New Orleans for our fifth year we decided to try our luck with a second swamp tour. Having trawled through the reviews on trip adviser it seemed most people gave... More

Highly recommend this tour company. They picked us up from the hotel right on time, getting a call 5 minutes before they arrived at the door so we had no concerns about missing the bus. The driver gave interesting tidbits about the french quarter on the drive down, and on the ride back we experienced excitement with a mini hurricane... More

Fantastic, memorable experience for all. Tour company picked up from French Quarter for an extra fee, but we had a free guide to New Orleans on in the way to the swamp. The swamp guide was informative, funny and knew the wildlife really well. Has to be on your list when visiting the Big Easy.

My entire family enjoyed the boat ride along the river and into the swamp areas. Alligators come right up to the boat as they feed them marshmallows and hotdogs. Some were small but a few were huge and stared us down looking like they really wanted us for lunch. We were all warned several times to not put our hands... More

We're glad that you enjoyed your trip with us. All of the wildlife that we see is indeed that, WILD! They are not tamed, yet they do remember out boats and are always around to grab a little treat. Alligators can just out of the water about the entire length of their body so everyone does need to keep their... More

Easy access & parking, cheap tickets, friendly & knowledgeable guides. This tour gives you a small taste of how the cajuns live in the swamp. Lots of wildlife to see & even gators,maybe Big Al if your lucky! A must do over & over again.

We didn't know what to expect. We were blown away with how much we saw for so much less money than other tours operators were asking. The guide was funny and knowable. Would definitely go back and recommend Honey Island to friends.

The swamp tour was probably my favorite activity my husband and I did on our trip to Louisiana. The boat left promptly and the guide was so sweet and very knowledgeable.

This was great on a weekday when the traffic in the swamp is low. I guess on weekends, the wildlife is less likely to show themselves. Our guide was a lot of fun, feeding the alligators with hot dogs and marshmallows.
