We took the six person boat which worked out well because it is uncovered and allowed us to see things we may have missed otherwise, like the two bald eagles we saw! As a previous review mentioned it also allowed us to go through some cutoffs that the bigger boats could not fit through. One added bonus was that we... More

This was a great ride through the Bayou and Swamp land. We took the six (6) person morning tour. Because of our small boat, we were able to go places that most tours could not access. Our guide was excellent also

I have lived in Slidell 7 years. Everytime we have company we bring them here for a tour. Everyone loves it. We are never disappointed. They also give a military discount, thank you for that! Best tour guides too! They are informative and make it fun! Awesome!

This was a fun and interesting side trip on our trip to New Orleans. It's about a 45 minute drive out of town to the launch point - the tour operator arranges for hotel pickups. We did see many alligators (attracted by marshmallows to the launch point). There were also egrets and herons. We did not see any wild pigs... More

Up close - VERY close - to large gators and a journey deep into swamp land near New Orleans. Told ahead of time there would likely be a lot more wild life but not on our trip. The information provided was fascinating and learned a lot about this eco-system that has been around for centuries.

We've done both the larger group tours and the small group tours and both are fantastic. The trip takes you deep into swamplands that are home to alligators, turtles, all kinds of water birds, wild pigs, snakes and raccoons. The guides were both extremely knowledgeable as well as personable. They were great with young kids, too. Well worth the price... More

Being from New England, I was looking forward to seeing the swamp lands of Louisiana and I was not disappointed. Worth the $25 plus tip for about a two-hour tour on a hot and humid mid-September day. It was almost like stepping back in time with alligators, bald cypress, the epiphytic and widespread Spanish moss, maybe some feral pigs, and... More

We had a blast on this tour! We chose the 6 person boat but ended up being the only 2 on the tour with our guide. He was very knowledgable and friendly! We saw lots of gators, but it wasn't just about them. We saw many other critters and heard all about the vegetation and history of the swamp and... More
