“Fantastic tour!”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

We saw about ten different species of beautiful birds; lots of alligators and turtles. Very knowledgeable and engaging guide. Hundreds of egrets and roseate spoonbills were sitting in the trees alongside the road going to the tour meeting spot.

“You'll love it”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

The father/son team of Butch and Shawn run this operation. They each run different boats (flat bottom skiffs with quiet small motors). The tour covers the perimeter of Lake Martin. We had Butch as our guide and he was excellent. He's not a yeller, he has a soft voice, but he really knows his stuff. There's not a question he can't answer. He talks the whole time, telling you about what you're seeing and the layers of information beyond that. We saw 7-8 alligators, close up, and a variety of birds. At $20 you'll love the price and the experience.

“What an experience”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

We did the 9 Am tour and it was a cool foggy morning. The 2 hours tour cost $20 and our guide was excellent. He came from an old local family and has been around the swamp since he was a kid and so had a lot of knowledge. His sense of humor was also good. this was not an air boat so it was quiet as it glided over the water. If you like to chat and ask questions, select a seat at the rear near the guide. This is a must go and the fog and mist added to photo opportunities and an amazing trip.

“best experience of entire vacation”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

We enjoyed our tour of Lake Martin so much, learned so much and saw so much. Shawn did an excellent job and we recommend his tour for those who enjoy the outdoors and those who want to learn more about the birds and reptiles sharing our world. Most children from about age 6 and up would get lots from this tour. The trip was our favourite experience during a week-long vacation in Louisiana including New Orleans. Great value for the price.
