What a fantastic experience! We found this tour outfitter after a fellow traveler mentioned his terrible experience with Honey Island Swamp tours, and we feel really lucky to have done so. We phoned in our reservation on a Sunday evening and were on the 9:45 tour the next day. It was an easy 40-minute drive out of New Orleans and... More

This was the top adventure of our family trip this year. The guide was funny and informative. The wildlife was abundant! Thank you.

This tour through the Honey Island Swamp was fantastic! The captain was so knowledgable about his beloved swamp, that we thought he was a science teacher! The boat was small enough to feel like we were all getting his individual attention, yet large enough to not feel cramped. It is an easy trip from downtown New Orleans to the dock.... More

Randomly selected this company out of a variety of brochures and we are so glad we did! Not an extremely large company (which we really liked) and it made the experience very personable. Our tour guide took time to explain the ins and out of the 'swamp world' and all that we were seeing. Loved being up close and personal... More

We were lucky enough to have Ian as our guide for this trip to the pearl river. The trio was worth every penny. The scenery is stunning and like nowhere I have visited and that includes a year in Africa. We had hired a car and drove around 45 minutes from New Orleans. Make your own way there and the... More

We opted for the more expensive six person per boat tour, and we are so pleased we did. As it turned out we were the only ones on our flat bottom tinny (95 horse power). Wade was a great guide with excellent local knowledge. True local born and bred there. The highlight of the tour for me was sailing through... More

This tour looks to be a family run business. It's small, so you get first class attention here. Comfortable boats, knowledgeable guides, you can't go wrong here.

Had a great time, loved the trip, would recomend it for anyone. nice boats, freindly staff, only thing I would have liked is to get deep into the swamp. But with it being on boats not air boats I understand. Well worth the money

This was recommended by our tour operator (she had taken it the year before), and it did not disappoint. We were collected from our hotel with our group and taken on the hours drive to Slidell. The boat was of the flat bottom variety rather than an airboat, which meant we didn't scare off the wildlife. Our tour guide grew... More
