Great Fun!

AWSOME tour. Great and friendly staff Fun as well as educational. Everyone in my family loves it! We would definitely do it again!
Bruce the Gator!
, Aug 2021
Oh, this was a blast! We walked in to the shop/check in office and the lady working inside was so sweet and greeted us warmly. We checked in and got Matt as our tour guide (I'm pretty sure that was his name). The boat ride was super smooth- loved when we could go super fast to cool us off, cos it was hot! We saw so many gators, and turtles, and even a sweet trash panda. Matt was feeding them marshmallows WHICH THEY SEEMED TO LOVE- haha! We met Bruce the Gator, and she (Bruce was a she gator!) played it up for her audience, chomping on the marshmallows- so cute. Great experience!
Great tour

All Around Great Tour!

This tour was everything it promised, got to see the bayou, learn about it, and see lots of wildlife. I think we saw around 30 alligators, including some big ones up close! We also saw turtles and racoons. Guide was very knowledgeable, personable, and expert on guiding the boat through the swamp.

Captain Roy was friendly and knowledgeable. We saw about 10-12 gators and a racoon. Our kiddos are 7 and 5, they absolutely loved it. This was a fun experience for our family.
If You Can Only Do One Tour, This Is It!

Capt. Kyle took us on an adventure of a lifetime. Our whole group (6 of us) couldn't stop talking about what a great time we saw and the wonder of seeing all the wildlife coexisting in the swamps and their natural habitat. He always made sure that everyone got a chance to see everything. The kids on the tour absolutely loved it.
Great tour - worth the money
