The Swamp tour was very interesting for us . If you feel the nature of New Orleans you must join this tour. December is not the season of Alligators because of that we saw only two small alligator but the environment was really very interesting .

First swamp tour and had a blast. Saw a bunch of gators and turtles. James made us laugh the entire time and he knew what he was talking about. Would for sure do it again.

An opportunity to get up close and personal with the alligators which come right up to the boat. From 3 feet to 13 feet. We did not expect them to come so close but they were enticed with little treats on a stick (marshmallows and hot dogs) which they seem to sense as soon as the boat guide brings them... More

We took the Cajun Critters Swamp Tour with my family that was in town from Maryland. We had a wonderful time and I would totally recommend it for old and young alike. A leisurely boat ride with beautiful scenery. I cant believe that I have lived here for 7 years and have not done this yet. I cant wait to... More

The tour was very enjoyable and we learned a lot! The captain had a great sense of humor and extensive knowledge of the gators and the area. We would definitely do this again.

I have been to New Orleans many many times and in every stay there I have gone on a different swamp tour. All told I have been on 7 different swamp tours now, 3 tours through the Barataria, 2 tours in Lafitte La, and 2 at Honey Island. With that being said the Cajun Critters tour through Honey Island Swamp... More

I guess we should have known better but don't bother doing these tours in winter time as we did not see any alligators except for the head of one for about 2 seconds. The captain was very knowledgeable.

We booked this through our hotel and we loved it. Our tour guide was very funny and informative. We seen a lot of alligators and a snake basking on a tree stump. The highlight was to see the 13.5 foot gator on the bank of the swamp. We also saw various birds and turtles.

My wife and I took this tour and it was great. James was knowledgeable and lots of fun and I will go again when in the area. I thought it would be more remote but once you cleared the lock, you.couldn't tell you were that close to"civilization". Good value!
