  • The swamp is neither scary nor worthless but slightly boring. Nice short nature walk. Lacks wildlife and could use some maintenance and additional activities/informational guides. The website is misleading and the only wildlife I saw were small cute frogs.
  • Chris and Jane were great guides. Both so knowledgeable and we saw a lot of different species of wildlife. Our favorite was all the alligator sightings. Very professional and extremely friendly and helpful. 5 stars for Gator Bait Tours. Thank you, Chuck and Gloria
