I don’t know what would have made the experience anymore enjoyable. Our guide was very knowledgeable about the area, the history, the wildlife, and the vegetation. It was a very relaxing boat ride, the bursts of speed was exciting!!!

Captain Ernie was very knowledgeable and informative. We were even able to find a few Gators in the winter and learned a lot of new things about them. Very good tour

This was our first trip to NOLA and very happy we did this tour. Definitely a unique experience for us Californians. Captain Ernie was very informative.

It is definitely a fun and exciting way to experience nature in LA! Be prepared for the wind and noise and to get a tiny bit wet... but so much fun! Our guide was great and had a lot of knowledge and we saw a bald eagle, birds, turtles and several gators!!
