Going into swamp where most boats can't go. Feeding alligators Along with holding baby alligators. Our guide was knowledgeable and made trip fun and memorable.

Seeing all the alligators and going fast on the airboats. Riding through the swamp is the reason to be on the small group tours.

I had a very fun time on my swamp trip. I had a day by myself while my husband was working and decided to give this tour a try. I’m very glad I did.

Todd was literally amazing. This tour is SOOOO worth it! The small boat is where it's at! The alligators came out in full swing and made this experience amazing. Although, the people on our boot were great too. Todd is so knowledgeable about the bayou, and made it the best experience. My fav part of the trip! Thank you so much!!!!!

DO THIS TOUR! I’ve done a some of tours and this one ranks as one of my absolute favorites!Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny, but not in the usual awkward tour guide way. The air boat was exhilarating and the gators were so cool! Our guide made sure we got to experience a large one up close and personal. Also loved the history and environmental facts about the swamp.

Took the small group airboat, worth the money for smaller group. Airboat ride was amazing! Guide knew all the right places for gator sightings, provided snacks for feeding them and was extremely knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I are senior citizens and we enjoyed this tour with our daughter. The boat ride was smooth and exciting. Our captain was very brave, practically encouraging a large alligator to get on the front of our boat. He also passed around a baby alligator for each of us to hold. We went on an August afternoon and were surprised by how comfortable we were: No bugs, lots of breeze, and a little water splashing!
