  • From a rough beginning to an amazing end. We did the boat tour on a Sunday at 2pm. I called and made the reservation on Saturday and they told me that the bus would pick us up between 12:45-1:15. Now....  more »
  • This was THE BEST part of our 3 days in NOLA. Our guide Jeff gave us the perfect mix of adventure (going fast on the air boat) and knowledge of the swamps creatures and history. We saw gators...  more »

  • Our group had an amazing time!! It doesn't look pretty at all but once you get out there the atmosphere is serene. The trees are beautiful. Seeing an alligator up close was amazing! Nature at its finest and trust me, I'm not the person who wants to be that close to nature. Our tour guy Mitch was comedic and was full of interesting knowledge. I could definitely do this again!
  • We truly enjoyed our family trip through the swamp on the covered boat tour, and Captain Danny is a real character with lots of humor and local flair. His stories, jokes and informational notes were great. The Gators are prolific and incredible, and we saw many water birds, turtles, and even a raccoon tame enough for Danny to hand feed. The kids were enraptured and loved getting to throw a marshmallow in for the gators. (Whether marshmallows are safe for them, I question...) Everyone literally gasped when he said he'd catch a "baby" alligator! But then he never did and we weren't sure if that was just how it rolls with nature or if he should have tried again.  The boat is great and fully covered, always appreciated in the sun, and anyone could tell that Danny has so much knowledge and skill, built from his youth in the swamp. Two little things make this a four-star review instead of 5. First, it was about 20 minutes short of 2 hours. Second, the captain smoked on the boat where no one could escape. Not exactly the nature experience that we were looking for!
