Captain Ron's pontoon boat was the best way for us to see and experience Caddo Lake. His humor and historical knowledge kept us entertained the entire hour long boat ride. Our 3 and 5 year old enjoyed the ride too. It's a definite must-do when in town.

Captain Ron was very knowledgeable about the lake's history. He would through in a little humor every now and then. It was relaxing for my wife and I and he made my 5 & 7 year olds feel important as he allowed them to take the wheel for just a few moments.

Great tour with Captain Ron. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Plus my kids loved his dog, Panda. It was sad to hear about the giant salvinia taking over the lake. Hopefully a solution is soon found so the lake isn't lost.

SisterChicks had a great time on Saturday learning about the lake from Captain Ron, he was amazing. If it wasn't so Hot we could have stayed on the boat all day. The Lake is beautiful and Capt. Ron very knowledgeable he makes it a great learning experience. If you do go in August i would recommend the 10 am tour... More

I think the name of this company has changed. Our pontoon boat said Swamp Tours. The Little office is across the street from the lodge. We really enjoyed our tour. It was a little over an hour. The captain is funny, knowledgeable and a great tour guide. We really enjoyed him. He was great with our kids too. Getting out... More

We had a lovely time on the pontoon boat tour. It was a beautiful day! It was definitely worth every penny of the amount I paid and then some. My only complaint was that there were several (at least 4) remarks made by the captain about individuals who purchased tickets through Groupon. Groupon is how I heard about the tour... More

It may have been raining out, but The good Captain Ron was all the sunshine we needed. His wit and tales of the river forest really helped us enjoy the ride.

The graceful ghost steam boat is no longer an option at swamp tours so don't let it get you down and disappointed. It may not get mentioned to you until you are standing on the doc in front of Steamboat waiting to board and and pontoon boat pulls up with Captain Ron saying all aboard. They have ran the Steamboat... More

We were visiting Texas from Maryland for the first time. We were staying in Flint, Texas about 1 hr and 20 minute drive from the Graceful Ghost. My family and I really enjoyed this boat trip. I was very skeptical at first because I can't swim and I am afraid of any large body of water even if I am... More
