Awesome trip through the swamp. Thanks Capt. Mitch for such a great time. Definitely would recommend to anyone that wants to see the Louisiana swamp land wildlife.

Mitch was a fabulously great captain. We got to see parts of the country we’d never get to on our own with a bunch of native wildlife, and different vegetation. I’d recommend this trip!
