Paid for transportation as well as the tour and Captain James picked me up at exactly half 8 from my hostel in the Garden District. Drove to the boat and waited for the othe guests then set off.

This experience was so fun! The captain was knowledgeable and passionate about the swamp, alligators, trees, birds, and other wildlife. We also enjoyed doing a tour this way instead of an airboat. The airboats are extremely loud!

We rented a car and drove out to Westwego on our own. Not a far drive at all. Capt James was waiting for us. We enjoyed seeing the small alligators and birds and hearing about life in the bayou.

We used a groupon, so we got a great deal! The Captain was very knowledgable of the Bayou and the animals around it! We had a great time!

Captain Bishop gives a fun and humorous commentary. Right down to showing us a refridgergator - very cool. Trip exceeded my expectations for observing alligators and interesting birds and swamp landscapes. Capt Bishop is local, knowledgable, fun and generous with going a little further up the bayou. Even the 45 minute bus drive to get to the swamp was interesting.

Well worth the trip and money!!!!! My husband and I had the best time. Our captain had a great story to tell and weaved it seamlessly through the tour. It included bits of history, bits of storm history, family ties and nature tales. Tours go out three times daily, it is so close to the city you will be amazed.... More

The skipper was incredible and very knowledgable. The boat was comfortable and had a covering and we were totally protected by the sun. I totally recommend this excursion!
