Captain James was super knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Although we had only five passengers on our trip he was enthusiastic about stopping and pointing out the different animals and fauna we encountered. I would have NEVER guess that gators like marshmellows!

We really enjoyed this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna. We were able to see a lot of alligators and wild hogs. He even picked up speed in the open water to give us some relief of the sun!
