My son and I drove out to Slidell from the quarter and it was a quick 35 minutes. The boat was quite full, but everyone had a great seat facing out. The alligators are currently hibernating, but we were out on a sunny day and saw 3 little guys... Est 4 feet long. We saw many birds, a few snakes, a raccoon and pig. We got some great photos and the boat ride was pleasant. Our captain was quite entertaining and incredibly knowledgeable. We would recommend the adventure.
