Good tour. Got to see a number of alligators and turtles close by. Time on airboat lasted about 80-90 minutes. I was expecting a more lush environment based on the pictures in leaflet and web. The tour is mostly in open fields.

My wife and I went out with Captain Scott and had a blast! Got to hold a 4' gator and enjoyed a swap sunset with my wife.

We did the air boat tour with Captain Scott. We were out about 5 minutes when we saw our first alligator. Captain Scott knew right where to find the gators for sure. He pulled a 4' right out and we all had a chance to him hold it before he was released. This wasn't on my bucket list but it's... More

Positives: Our tour guide was fantastic! He was fun and knowledgeable and authentic! He had lived in the bayou his whole life. We saw several small gators! Tour was totally worth it! Negatives: very hard to get a hold of! We used the shuttle (which I would not recommend using). There was a lack of clarity with the pick up... More

Captain Mitch deserves a review , my guess is this Youthful guide, must have done hundreds if not thousands of these tours .. on his 6 seat Airboat . However I could've sworn it was his first! his exuberance and warmth for his swamps and it's wildlife shines . Not one minute was strained or lacking in energy , his... More

The day we went on our "ultimate swamp adventure" was less than ideal: it was overcast, somewhat chilly (in the low 60'sF), and in the middle of February. However, Captain Steven made sure that we had an excellent time! He was a Louisiana native, especially friendly, and very enthusiastic about his job! We were able to explore the swamp on... More

This was a great swamp tour! Captain Gary was funny and knowledgeable about the area and history of the bayou. Saw some alligators and birds. Would recommend!

Fantastic service. Picked us up at our hotel right on time. Shuttled us down to the tour and back. Our driver even dropped us off at a restaurant we wanted to go to instead of our hotel on the way back. Our tour guide literally handed me a baby alligator. Great service, fun tour, super memorable.

This tour would of been so much better if we could of heard our tour guide. He did not use any microphone (not sure if he even had one) but we couldn't hear 95% of what he was telling us over the noise of the boat and people talking. Saw 3 alligators which was cool but felt like we missed... More

First we were picked up at our hotel by our bus driver Rick. Very funny and nice. Then we went on the pontoon boat with Gary who is Rick's cousin from Swamp People. Such a nice, funny and informative tour. Well worth the money and time!! Just do It!
