This was the best experience by far here in the NOLA. Stephen was a super great captain, he was funny and kept us safe. You were able to get a close look at the animals but with a safe distance. I highly recommend the swamp tour and I will do it again when I return to New Orleans.

The trip was very well organized and good we just didn’t see a lot in the swamp. 3 gators, a couple herons abs lots of turtles but it was an interesting ride through the swamp and a very entertaining Capt Chris. It’s about a 45 min ride to get out to the swamp but our bus driver gave us a lot of interesting information.
