We were able to sign up last minute (morning of) and were not disappointed. Great tour from a knowledge and friendly Captain John. Good length at just under two hours. Got to see lots of alligators, heron, turtles, hogs, and more. We were on a boat with 19 ppl and though raining at the beginning, stayed dry under the covered... More

Our hotel concierge recommended this tour to us and we can see why. We were picked up from our hotel , which does increase the price, but it saved the hassle of getting the car out of the parking garage in downtown NO and driving 25/30 miles to the swamp. There were only six of us in the mini bus... More

Our family of 4 adults, 2 teens and 2 children took this tour to see the wildlife & the swamps. Seeing the alligators was entertaining and interesting. They literally jump up out of the water to grab pieces of meat on a fishing line the guide dangles over their heads. But, besides a couple of birds, that's all the wildlife... More

Our hotel recommended and arranged our swamp tour with Pearl River. From start to finish, everything was great. We went on the covered slow boat, which was perfect. Captain Wade (I think that was his name) was very informative and has an eagle eye for spotting all the local animals. We saw several alligators, wild boar, a (very hungry) raccoon,... More

I had my doubts at first, as the website was annoying and the reservation system rather amatuer. Don't bother with the online form or email, all that did was send me an email with their phone number and when I called no one had any of the information I'd filled out online. Just go straight to the phone call and... More

We had planned to take a tour with another tour company down the road, and they were packed. So much so, that we couldn't get in. We happened to pick up a flyer for the Pearl River Eco Tours and called to ask them if they had any room on their 2:30 tour. They said yes, they gave us directions,... More

We had so much fun cruising the bayou in a small boat with our little group. Very informative tour and lots of fun. Pick up at our B&B was flawless and the dropped us off in the Garden District so we could walk to our lunch spot. Highly recommended!

Tons of alligators up close and personal! Our tour guide was a local native and very knowledgeable plus had a sense of humor. The boat was new and very good condition. Very enjoyable tour and recommended.

We love our Captains, and they love their jobs! What could be more fun than to get to take people out and show them your world. We are blessed to have some of the best local guides in the business! So glad you had a great time!!! Come see again soon! More
