Just took a tour with Captain Brandon and had a blast. Safe comfortable boat with lots of close up gator sightings. Captain Brandon was entertaining and informative. Even let us handle some little critters, including a baby gator. Super fun!

Such a great tour with wonderful employees! The lady in the gift shop who sold us our tickets was so friendly as was Captain Tom. The tour was relaxing and informative. We saw some really beautiful scenery as well as gators, a raccoon, turtles, egrets and other birds. Captain Tom had some crawfish on board and taught us about them.... More

I thought "why would I want to go hang out in a swamp for 2 hours?" My group was pre-booked so I went along. I really undersold this. It was really very cool. Learned a lot about that unique environment, saw the required group of alligators, and really enjoyed the tour guide's insight into the swamps and New Orleans in... More

If you're in New Orleans this is definitely one of the things to do. Went with a bunch of friends and everyone enjoyed it. Our guide Brendan had live animals that he brought on board which we could take pictures with and hold, and they were his own pets! Brendan was so nice, funny, and laid back and really was... More

We went in with low expectations of seeing anything because of late March and the weather but we were surprised! We saw every bit of wildlife and then some. Our tour guide was very informative and new everything about the water and wildlife we saw. We were able to hold a baby gator on top of a few 8ft alligators... More

Took the tour on April 13 at noon. Capt Allen was the captain of our boat. I will admit I was initially dubious of taking a tour with 50 other people but it worked out well and was very enjoyable! All the seating was good as gators and other wildlife showed up all over the place. We must have seen... More

This was a nice way to see the swamp. It's easily accessible and the large boat felt safe. We had a hard time deciding which of the many tours available we should try but the location of this one made it easier to decide. You don't get deep in the swamp but it was fun to see soem critters and... More
