Great tour!

We had an amazing tour! Captain Jason was very knowledgeable and passionate about the alligators! He knew where their spots were, called out for some that he knew would be around, and discussed all the wildlife we saw! He also filled us in on typical gator temperament/ how they are depicted on TV and why it may be different. Super interesting!

This was an excellent tour. It was about a 25 minute drive from downtown. Please follow the swamp tour signs on the road once you get close because my gps was directing me to turn earlier than I should have. Anyway, I brought along my 5 year old and 18 year old and they had a good time. We saw a bunch of alligators, birds and turtles. Also some sort of jumping fish. Our guide Darren (?) was great. He kept us laughing, explained so much history and always stopped the boat to allow us to get great pics. He also had snacks for purchase and a restroom on board. Great experience!

This was a pleasant tour. The weather was nice. The boat was a good size for the group. The guide was knowledgeable and patient. We saw a lot of nature and wildlife. We learned a lot about the animals and the habitat. Even my teenager commented that the tour guide was instructive and didn’t resort to lame jokes to interact with the group. Everyone enjoyed this activity.

Our Captain was great! Thank you Jason. It would've been even better if the tour included transport pick up and drop.

Nothing much.

The tour was okay but misleading. There are no different environments. You travel down the main canal and here a bit about it. Turn and come back. They throw dog food and alligators come (they say for fish) which is pretty questionable. There were no stops and we saw a turtle and a bird.

We were not taken to the Bayou as stated in the description. There is no place to get lunch. You have to drive 5-10 minutes away from the location.

There was heavy rain and lightning during our scheduled tour time so we did not go for safety reasons. Company would not cancel/ reschedule or refund us and tried to convince us to go out on the water in lightning.
