We had a great day out in the swamp. We live in town but have not gone on a tour since we moved here in the early ‘90’s. The tour guide was great and good with the kids on board as well. It was good to be a tourist in the city we live in.

Me and my husband really enjoyed this swamp tour. Very detailed and super fun. The tour guid even backed the boat up a few times to let us get as many pictures as we wanted. I would definitely do it again.

We saw many animals and plants in the Swamp. Captain told of history of area and answered any questions. The houses/shacks that were there were so different. Getting late in the year to see alligators, but several small ones were still around. Sounds like April/May is the time to go for all the flowers. We'll be back!

This was a great tour packed with information and lots of animals. We saw more than 25 individual gators, raccoons, snakes, and birds.Captain Hunter was a great guide and he made sure that we got to see everything, but also made sure that we got an understanding of swamp life and the culture of those living in the swamp.
