Our guide Gary was funny and informative about the area. Got to see a couple of alligators despite it being a little earlier in the season for them and the cold. I would recommend.

The waste of time and money 時間と金の無駄

The first is that we could not see alligators even though the tour strongly promote them. At the end of the tour, the captain showed an alligator kid to us, but this alligator had been caught in advance. You should go to a zoo to see such a thing. It was just a child trick. The second is that the dingy glasses covered the whole boat and thus we could not feel the air on the swamp. I tried to open the window before the tour started, but the captain did not allow me to do. The other boats we passed had windows opened and they felt comfortable wind. I want them to give back my time and money. まず、アリゲーターを前面に押し出して広告しているのにも関わらず、アリゲーターを見ることができませんでした。ツアーの最後で、船長が子供のアリゲーターを客に見せていましたが、これはあらかじめ捕まえていたもので、全く迫力に欠けます。 そんなものを見るなら、動物園に行った方が良いです。ただの子供騙しでした。 次に、ボート全体が薄汚いガラスに覆われているので、外の空気を感じることができません。出発前に窓を開けようとしましたが、船長が許しませんでした。すれ違うボートは窓を開け、心地よい風を感じていましたが。 時間と金を返してほしいです。

I'm sorry that you did not have a great experience. Please understand that we do not have control over the weather or the wildlife. Alligators are cold-blooded species and they do hibernate during the colder months. As for the glasses that you mentioned, they are plastic coverings that are normally only used to cover the guests from the rain or cold. We wouldn't normally have them down on a nice day because we want nothing more than for our guests to enjoy the beautiful weather. During the spring and summer, you will more likely get the experience that you prefer, as it will be warmer with more wildlife to see.

Amazing

Very prompt pickup from hotel. Tour was brilliant. Saw so many alligators in the swamp. Guide was prefect. Very knowledgeable and entertaining. We were fortunate to be in a very small group which made it almost a private tour. How they find their way round those back waters is amazing. Highly recommended.

Boat Tour

The boat tour itself was very good. We upgraded to the 6 capacity wind boat. Some things which detracted from the tour- our guide used the F word a number of times on the tour along with other colorful language, which was surprising. Additionally, he was an avid hunter and wanted to talk about his hunting ad nauseam, which I really did not want to hear about as someone who is not a fan of hunting. Worse, he proceeded to tell us how some swamp show on tv is bogus because “you don’t shoot alligators when you hunt them as it damages the hide”. Therefore, what he does is tie the alligator to the side of the boat and strike them in the back of the head on their soft spot with a ball pein hammer. That was terribly graphic and not something I wanted to hear. Finally, at the end of the tour, three boats tied together and they had two very small alligators. One guide tossed the alligator from his boat to our boat to our guide. This showed no concern for the animals and the smaller of the two was breathing very heavily and seemed distressed as it was passed among members of the boat. I wish the guides had shown more concern for nature/animals and an awareness that not everyone wants to hear about killing animals.

The pickup is a must. Our driver pointed out several historical sites and was very friendly. Swap tour great as well, and Captain Brad knowledgeable of the area.
