About Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours
Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

This swamp tour was much more than we expected. Full of exciting alligators, wild hogs, raccoons, and birds. Captain Hunter was great. He was very informative, humorous, and made the boat tour one of the best parts of our trip. Don't miss this tour.
