Glad we went!

This was a wonderful tour. Not too much or too little. An interesting and entertaining education on everything I need to know about alligators. Saw an eagle’s nest and maybe a glimpse of his head. Fun and professional presentation by Cap’n Jason! Thank you.

Perfect day to take a boat ride down the swamps & bayous & see a couple of gators. Our tour guid I believe his name was Buck (Sunday April 18 at 12:00 boat #5 ) he was great on explaining everything showing us up close as possible the gators. We got to hold a baby gator too. Thank you for a informative pleasure ride.

Eagle nest and baby gator were the highlights. Not as much wildlife (alligators) as I was expecting.

This was an unexpected delight! We thought this would be fun but it turned out to be one of our best moments in New Orleans! Jason (our captain) was AWESOME - we saw soooo many alligators and turtles. Eagles and other birds- this was just a wonderful journey into the bayou with someone really fun, funny and knowledgeable! Definitely recommend!

Jamie Beasley was our tour guide and he did an amazing job! He was funny, informative, and didn't mind questions and chatting with us. We did go on a chilly day but managed to see deer, gators, and birds. Would highly recommend this tour company, they were very hospitable and welcoming!

No flexibility what’s so ever. Driving in from New Orleans can be challenging and incidents occur. On our way we realized we would only be 4 minutes late so we called ahead of time to ask if they could please wait. While the front desk had direct communication with the captain she said that was not in her control. Very upsetting as we arrived the boat was still there and as we walked up they left us. No options for a refund or anything. Do not recommend

Our guide was great, knowledgeable and friendly. He was able to spot wildlife and point them out to everyone one the tour. He was able to find around 15 alligators and other wildlife in the beginning of February which was very impressive considering how cold it had been. We had a great time and would highly recommend this tour. Boat was clean and the facilities were clean.
