Beyond Fun
Jun 2021 • Friends
Had an amazing time! We were on the large airboat with captain Kenny. Not only did we see multiple gators and some other wild life but the ride on the boat itself was super fun (Kenny definitely had fun whipping us around). He was super knowledgeable and even knew some specific gators that he’s named and showed us their main hang out. The scenery itself was beautiful and I would have just been happy driving around enjoying the view even if we didn’t see a ton of gators.

Definitely a highlight of our trip! Thanks Kenny!!

Had a great time with our guide Ernie! We learned so much about the bayou and got a short history lesson. The highlight of our trip for sure! Saw many gators and enjoyed a few turtles too. Highly recommend this tour.

Enjoyable and fascinating experience
Feb 2020
Despite initially being let down with the pick-up from our apartment an alternative pick-up was arranged for the next day and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Our captain was very knowledgeable and entertaining and we were very lucky to see an adult alligator despite being February. It made my daughter's holiday.

Large Airboat Swamp Tour
Nov 2019
We really wanted to go on the swamp boat tour, and had our 5 year old daughter with us. We were excited to go, but when we got to the tour location, there was a height requirement of 48 inches, and my daughter was under, so we could not do that. The tour operators helped out and allowed us to change over to boat tour of the swamp. Our captain and guide was excellent. Still worth it to take the tour, and company was able to accommodate us, but we had to go through Viator to get a refund, which was easy enough, but certainly a hassle on vacation to spend time on hold. The only other issue was the transportation company "Alert Transport" that was sent and separate from the tour company, did not have good communication about where they were going to pick us up. We were waiting at the main entrance, and they were standing on the Canal street entrance. Communication issues with the pick up was echoed by more than one of our fellow passengers.

We are so glad to hear that you had a great experience and that were able to accommodate your and your daughter! We do apologize for your experience with transportation. We are doing our best to navigate through road closures and construction at the moment to accommodate the door to door pickup service. Thank you for the positive rating and we appreciate your understanding!

From the pick up, to the tour and the drop off, each part of this excursion was done with friendly professionalism. We were picked up and dropped off to the tour location early giving everyone enough time to use the facilities, shop and relax prior to the tour beginning. From the outset, our guide (who was local) was informative, insightful and most importantly, transparently honest. We received facts, information and entertaining anecdotes throughout the duration of our trip. Additionally, he dispelled all myths and hearsay pertaining to swamps, gators, the locals, etc. and offered genuine feedback to make our trip much more educational and as importantly, fun.

A huge thanks to our guide that made our trip. Answers all our questions and explains so many things about the area and wildlife . Spoke about how the swamp eco system works and shared great conversation. Pick up easy along with drop off. Thanks again 👍👍
