Blew By You -- pun intended

My wife and I wanted to experience a swamp tour while in the area and picked McGee's Landing. We had a great time on a casual boat trip for a little over 1.5 hours. Boat was like a pontoon and not an air boat. Other companies in the area tried to tell us on the phone the water level was... More

Great local tour of the swamp and flora and fauna. Saw quite a few alligators and got to take videos and pictures of them. The "blew by you" comment was referring to the folks who drive overhead on I-10. Quite a site and a good value...Stay for dinner as well.

I'll start by how accomodating the staff was. We booked an airboat tour for the morning but changed our mind and decided for the afternoon. No problem, they accomodated our request immediately. Then let's talk about the tour, if you can get captain Byron go for it. He is superb, he knows the place like no others and has great... More

We took a private airboat tour of the swamps - it was exactly what we were looking for. Fun, beautiful, interesting. Saw alligators, cypress groves, etc. Our guide was informative and friendly.

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
