Overview

Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

Nice experience in the swamp. The alligators make the big part of it, with some show off but in a funny way. The following boat ride and visit to the "village by the swamp" is an unexpected and pleasant add-on.

We visited with two teens and a 4 yr old for a swamp tour. Our guide was captain Hunter. We were really happy with our tour. Captain Hunter was humorous, knowledgable, and friendly. I enjoyed learning about the area, the history, and facts about wildlife...More
