Enjoyed our trip through the wetlands and the natural habitat of alligators. We learned many things about the living and nonliving parts of this environment.

This tour will happen rain or shine. It was pouring the day of our tour and they still did it. It stopped soon after the tour started. The tour was very relaxing, calm, and quiet. The guide had working knowledge of the fauna in the area like eagles and vultures etc. as well as the history of the area and movies filmed there. We saw plenty of alligators calmly swimming about and were allowed to hold a muzzled baby gator.

Our tour guide Jamie was great! He made the tour more memorable. We saw quite a few gators on the water and I loved being able to hold the baby o gator on the boat. Only downside was the bugs (specifically the large bees), but that was to be expected in the swamp.

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.
