The ultimate tour

Our trip was an amazing experience, our tour guide captain Mark was a very knowledgeable guide we saw many gators from the smallest to the biggest which appeared to be around 12 feet. He was an old guy and a little intimidating. We also saw wild hogs, and several different species of water fowl. It was great way to spend a few hours and I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Captain Kyle was great, giving Los of interesting information on our tour. The boat was easy to get in and out of and the tour was fun. My daughters especially enjoyed the up close encounters with a raccoon and wild pig thanks to the marshmallows!

These people are great to deal with. They are very accommodating. The swamp was absolutely beautiful and we got to go about ten miles into it in the boat. After we returned home I asked the kids what they liked best in New Orleans and they agreed it was the swamp tour.

Even though there were no gators this trip, we did see plenty of birds, raccoons, and wild hogs. The day was crisp and chilly at 62 degrees. Tony knew the lay of the river and was knowledgeable about the waters since he grew up on them.
