We are a family with two teenage girls and grandmother and this week too the trip on the swamp. We looked at reviews online and decided to go with Madoo - it was all very easy to arrange, Sean was waiting for us on time with a big smile and gave us directions to their visitor centre where we could look at pictures of some of the things we might see on the trip, and use the restrooms before the 2 hour boat trip!
The boat felt very secure and safe, and the weather was just slightly overcast which made for a comfortable trip. Sean was very informative, telling us about the Swamp, and spotting birds in the magroves. We also saw two snakes, the crabs that the Ibis eat to get their colour, oysters, four-eyed fish, silky anteater, and of course the amazing flocks of Scarlet Ibis which flew in to decorate the trees as they came to roost. We really enjoyed the peaceful trip along the waterways with a gentle breeze blowig.
What I really appreciated was that apart from doing the guided tour, Sean was able to answer lots of questions that the visitors asked, not just a memorized blurb. He had binoculars that he passed around which made the viewing of the Ibis at roost really great. He and his father also gave information about other tours that could be done in the swamp, or out into the Gulf.
I would definitely recommend Madoo Tours.
