The tour was fun and adventurous. I'm prone to motion sickness...but the air boat ride was smooth and fast. The gators where friendly and the swamp was beautiful. Dillion was knowledgeable and fun!

We did the morning air boat tour on April 7, 2018. The shuttle picked us up at the hotel (albeit 30 minutes earlier than advertised). The trip out to the boat launch location took about 25 minutes and was smooth. Rennan was our boat guide/driver/captain...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

Less than 30 min (depending on traffic of course). But it is not far. We took their bus and it was about 20/25 min. We actually waited longer at the dock itself once we arrived than the drive. It was a great experience- we... More

The processing (boat assignment, paying) went by fast for us as we were the first batch in the morning. The tour itself is less than 2 hours; ours was 1:45 long. Great experience though, we had a blast!
