We went on the 6 person sciff tour. It was so much fun to learn about the Eco system of the swamp and get an up close look at the wildlife. The staff from the moment we got there was so welcoming. Captain John had so much knowledge about the rivers, swamps, people, and wildlife. We would go back for... More

This tour was fantastic! First we were picked up from our guest house in New Orleans. A very comfortable ride to our destination about 30 mins away. The weather wasn't to flash and the swamp was a bit swollen. So it meant that we didn't get to see any gators. But that didn't matter it just means we can come... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Captain Gareth did a great job providing history of the area and information on wildlife and vegetation. Liked that we were a relatively small group (9 or 10). Saw lots of wildlife including alligators, Russian Boar, egrets, Bald Eagle, tons of turtles, raccoons, freshwater channell mullets jumping in and out of the water- lots of fun... More

This was a great experience. The 6 passenger boat tour was unbelievable and Captain Garret was very good about explaining the swamp and bayou. The alligators, wild boars, turtles and birds of flight were amazing. Up close and personnel with the people and wildlife of bayou/swamp. A must do in the New Orleans area. Thank you Austin and Garret.

This tour was amazing! Had found a brochure in the hotel we stayed at and decided to check them out. We were only in Louisiana one day and had limited time and they accommodated us by opening up an extra tour. We took the 6 passenger boat with Trey. He was very nice and was very funny. Definitely not a... More

We went on the six passenger swamp tour. Unfortunately the weather was cold that day so we didn't see any alligators, but we did see a variety of bird life, including a bald eagle. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot (e.g. I now know the difference between a swamp and a marsh), and he made... More
