Something for everyone on this lovely tour of the swamp. We took the 6 person boat with the memorable Captain Wade. His breadth of knowledge by growing up on Pearl River gave us real insight to the beauty of this land. Request him and you’ll get that local knowledge. Alligators, wild pigs, insects, fish, flora and fauna; they were all... More

We had an excellent tour by Captain Wade. He grew up on the Pearl River and knows where to find a lot of wildlife as well as explain how the various parts of the ecosystem work together. His dad was a naturalist and professor at the University of New Orleans so he knows whereof he speaks. I recommend a smaller... More

This was one of my favorite parts of our trip. We got to see all kinds of wildlife, as well as go deep into the almost inaccessible areas of the swamp. Our tour guide was Brian, and he was fantastic. He had a lot of info on the swamp, hurricane Katrina, as well as some (sorta) funny turtle jokes. It... More

My husband and I took our daughters on this tour a little over a year ago on a trip to New Orleans. We enjoyed it so much that we did it again today with friends. Captain Garrett was knowledgable and entertaining. This is probably my favorite family activity in New Orleans. I highly recommend it. Bring some extra cash to... More

Took this tour on 6/17/14. This is the one to take. Pick up time at hotel was right on. "Brownie" was the tour guide, ask for him! His knowledge of the swamp is very informative. There is much more to the swamp that I never would have known without taking this tour. All our questions were answered. We saw many... More

If you get captain John then you will be in for a great time. He was very knowledgeable on a wide range of topics from the swamp and its environment of course to history of Louisiana and more. During the trip we managed to see it all too including multiple alligators, wild boar, piglets, snakes and indigenous plant life. I... More

Captain Gary took us on a fun, educational tour of the swamp. He was funny and informative. It was one of the highlights of our trip to New Orleans. I would definitely do this again. I got some gorgeous pictures of the swamp, trees, gators, etc. Take a camera!

What a great trip, well worth the money and time! While visiting my brother in law in Slidell, he suggested this tour, I was hesitant to go..I mean..its a swamp, big deal right? Wrong..Capt John was great, very knowledgeable. We saw gators, various birds, and some wild hogs that were fed right from the boat! lots of fun!
