This was a very informative trip with a lot of information about the area and people of the area. The boat was comfortable and moved slowly. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and we saw some osprey, eagles and a few alligators

Bring your camera! Narrated tour and very enjoyable. Some interesting information presented and some history as well. Beautiful area and leaves you wondering what it must have been like “back then”. Moderately priced and glad I did this, had wanted to for quite some time.

Boat was nice. Clean, comfortable, and spacious. Tour commentator was informative and entertaining. Children on board had great fun. Lots of picture opportunities. Good time of year. Cool breeze off the water made it pleasant.
