I've been on 2 boat swamp tours. Cajun Critters was the one I liked the best. James was very informative. He is also very genuine. Even though I am from the area, I still learned a few things. It's easy to find and not too far from New Orleans, maybe 15-20 minutes.

we went in early april and even though it had been very warm for april, apparently the big gators don't come out until later in the season...we saw 3 small "baby" gators...the wild pigs were much more interesting to see in the wild captain was very entertaining and was overall a fun expeience

If you want to see gators.. this place if for you! They raise and feed them so they are trained to come to the boats. Nice guides, good ecological information. Not much else to view other than gators!

Captain James was a wealth of information about the swamp. Despite cool temperatures and few gators, he made the tour very entertaining and informative. There is much to learn about what is going on out there in the backwaters of Louisiana. Cajun Critters Swamp Tours is a good way to learn more about it and experience something different so close...

We stopped off en route to Natchez and went out on a slow boat (with 150hp outboard!) Tour was 1:45hr and we saw a couple of young gators, hogs. Herons, egret and raccoon. Best sightings of gators is when it's warmer! Nice informative tour

This was a lot of fun. They were very friendly and they had a great sense of humor. They let us hold a small alligator. The ride was awesome.

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
