This was definitely money well spent. Desi is a great and knowledgeable guide. Saw just about everything you could think of , small gators,large gators,wild hogs, raccoon, etc. Highly recommended this company. Smaller groups, smaller boats, more personal experience. R. Wolken Lawrence, Ks.

This is by far the best swamp tour in the area. Captain John was great with kids and absolutely knows his environmental science of the area. Knows the plants, the wildlife, and the ecosystem. Wonderful experience!

We did a private swamp tour with Captain John. He’s a true professional and showed us a great time even in a downpour (hint-request a covered boat). Saw alligator and hogs, and a lot of other amazing sights. Highly recommended and informative.
