Excellent guides, history & experience! Very private swamp, lots of alligators, racoons, turtles, birds & swamp history. Driver pickup/drop off at hotel also treated us to historic events along way to swamp & Laura plantation.

Whilst it was single digits in temperature and the boat ride was beyond cold, Captain Brandon made the experience warm and welcoming. Gators were barely to be seen but that didn't dampen a great experience which produced up close encounters with racoon and sighting of...More
