Good food with a great view

First, Let me say, I am from Louisiana. The tour guide did a great job of reinforcing the idea that people from LA are dumb; they like to party and drink. The description from the internet: "The boat tour guides are informative and amusing, able to blend history, myth, opinion and paractical lore in one and a half hour tour."... More

Stopped here on our way back through the bayou--had tried on the way out but it was closed. Seems to have unusual hours. The view is exceptional. Food was great. I had boiled shrimp and my husband had a gator po boy. A little pricey for the type of food. But still a great stop.

We tried to make a reservation for 10AM for the following day by phone but were arm twisted into making it for 11. We showed up at a little past 10 on the day of the tour and were told that the 11AM tour was cancelled and that the two people in front of us just reserved the last two... More

We had a great time. We learned the history of the area and the boat driver was hilarious. Loved seeing the plant life and animal life, we got to see 2 gators on this trip. They came really close to the boat. I will do this again. We took the cruise boat but next time we will take the air... More

This was a fun few hours. Staff was very nice. Kids liked riding in airboat. Boat captain was pleasant and answered lots of questions. Not much else to do at Marina.

I am originally from Louisiana but have never been on a swamp tour. My husband and I were in the area with his parents and our nephew visiting my family so we decided to take everyone on a swamp tour. We opted for the private air boat which holds 6 people. It was spectacular and one of the most unique... More

Best experience ever! If you miss the swamp tour ride with Curtis at the helm, you have denied yourself one of life's best memories! To start with, the shop itself is out of this world... everything you would need for the fisherman or outdoorsman, memorabilia galore, and all the extra stuff to eat or pass the time is there for...

This was a nostalgic trip. Came here when I was a teen. Bought my kids back now they are teens. The place has not changed. It still holds an old world charm I love. Took a swamp tour. Not sunny enough for the gators but saw 2. Our guide was brilliant, he took us on a great trip. We saw... More

After having a complete disaster at another tour company, Pastor Brothers, we found McGee's landing and decided to give them a try. We were supposed to have loding that evening already but the other tour fell completely though. Well we showed up late and told them the issues we were having and they had a cabin available for the evening.... More

The location took some finding but it was well worth the detour to find it, the staff were friendly and helpful and the actual trip was excellent despite the water levels being high due to floods. Our captain Byron was great ( though maybe get some new jokes Byron) and even managed to find some alligators despite the water conditions,... More
