The tour was fantastic. It mixed between fast and slow speed. The boat captain is knowledgeable and fun. Maybe we were not that lucky. We encountered only small alligators. However, we could learn so much about swamp life during the tour. Children are required to wear life vests and this could be very hot due to high humidity. It will be better if the boat equips a few ring buoys.

Captain Emmett was funny and knowledgeable. During the tour, we encountered not only alligators but also raccoons and pigs. We learned a lot about ecosystems at the swamp.
