Brian Champagne conducted a great, interesting tour of the swamp and bayou. Lots of informative info presented in a wl organized manner. Open boats with about 18 passengers, friendly office staff. Glad we did this. He will be on the History Channel soon.

Recommended by our hosts in Lafayette - this was money well spent. It appears to be more of a sustainable tour as well - no tempting the gators with marshmallows and chicken tenders here! You're in quite a small boat (12 max) with a knowledgable guide who discusses te ecosystem of the lake, the animals, the seasons and the foliage. Our guide was great - happy to answer questions and slow down the boat to a stop for photos. We saw gators, turtles, frogs, spiders, birds and got great photos of all.

Our tour guide and owner, Bryan, was so friendly as well as his employees. He was very knowledgeable of all the wildlife and vegitation. The environment was inviting and unique. The moss covered cypress forest was beautiful. The tour lasted almost 2 hours. His tours are also handicapped accessible. The store/office was very clean with a rustic look and a deck right on the water. We cannot wait to go back.

What visit we had two hours of interesting information on the swamp from the alligator to birds. Insects spiders and webs.The trees and how old how they grow. I forgot about the turtles sitting on floating branches along side an alligator. Our guide so funny all thought so also two hours flew by and for only 20 dollars.

We had a great informative tour of the swamp with Brian. The weather was perfect. We were out an hour and 45 minutes in beautiful weather. It was spooky and wonderful at the same time. We learned a lot about the animals, trees, plants and birds. I'd recommend it to everyone.
