Our guide was very knowledgeable and we saw so many animals, including alligators, a wild boar, a raccoon, birds and snakes. He hand fed the boar and raccoon. It was amazing! Definitely recommend.

I really enjoyed this experience! The pickup was convenient and driver was nice. The tour guide/boat driver was so funny and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and ecology. He spotted a lot of wildlife for us! And had a very unique gator call (that surprisingly worked!) Really nice time and highly recommend this company

Captain Hunter was great! We learned a lot and saw reptiles. The shuttle ride there was awful. Should’ve just drove there ourselves.

Bayou Wildlife with a great commentary

Having taken a couple of Bayou tours this by far the best - very informative guide with a great sense of humor; a good combination and what is needed to see the wildlife which, given half a chance, will have you for dinner!

Awesome tour with pickup included

These guys are professional, entertaining, and experienced residents of the bayou. Captain Hunter was a newer guide but still very knowledgeable of the swamp ecosystem. We saw reptiles, birds, Ferrel pigs, and lots of Spanish moss, even on a cold day. Beautiful ecosystem and an eye-opening view of the swamp life on the Pearl River. Don’t be too much in a hurry for pickup if you are getting picked up in the French Quarter as there is always a chance of late pickup. Ours was 30 minutes late but was a great ride with a mini tour to the river. I highly recommend this company for your swamp adventures.
