Great guide , he showed us a variety of swamp and marsh locations. We saw many animals and birds. He gave us a lot of history and current information on the area.

Got there for a tour at ten in the morning and we weren't disappointed we woke up early in our holidays. It was so good to navigate in the bayou and to feed some alligator on the way.

Reservations were easy - not email but text. Always answered immediately. Easy to contact by phone. Saw more wildlife than could be imagined. Air boat ride was awesome. Guide had wicked sense of humor. Major fun. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

The Bayou is such a diverse ecosystem. There is so much to see, and within the length of our tour, we came away feeling like we had seen it all. From the hundreds of bird species to the wildlife that teems from the black water,...More

Lots of wildlife that you could get a fleeting glimpse of if your were lucky. The tour guide just kept driving, people were pointing out wildlife and he would just drive on by. He stopped twice in what I guess is a predetermined location with...More

Airboat tour was definitely the highlight of our week-long trip to New Orleans! For the 4 of us, it was better than Mardi Gras in the French Quarter and all the action surrounding the NBA All Star Game. Junior was our guide :) Quite the...More

My wife has always wanted to take an airboat ride through the swamps. She will have her 80th birthday in April and I would really like to treat her to such a trip. Additionally Jan 2017 will be our 61st wedding anniversary so for either of these occasions I would like to book a trip. She is a little handicapped in that she cannot walk for great distances but can get up and down OK. Would that be a problem?
