We had a blast. Ernie our guide was great. I highly recommend this tour. You may want to bring your own blanket as they will rent you one for $20 😱 and we would have used one if we had it with us.

When in New Orleans Louisiana this is a must place to go to experience gator tour, guide made sure we got to see gators and pointed out various points of interest along the tour.
Must do while in NOLA!

Captain Ernie made the trip. So knowledgeable and we learned a lot. All the alligators that came up to boat were awesome to see up close. Loved all the scenery on relaxing boat trip. Bathroom on board. Plenty of seating. Will do again with other family members next time we come to NOLA.
Great Tour!
Quotasze_W, Apr 2024
Learning about alligators! The captain was very knowledgeable. Great experience. Do yourself a favor and pick an optimal time of the season to go when you can actually see alligators.
We saw cows, birds, and gators

Awesome swampers
Rijosh_J, Apr 2024
Went on the big boat tour with Capt. Jason. He is awesome. He let my 5 yr old drive the boat for a short time and this made her day. I would say if you are visiting the swamp, do it with Jason and don’t spend the extra bucks for the airboat. That thing is obnoxiously loud. The alligators would thank you
Response from Host, Apr 2024

Awesome boat ride
Carrie_E, Apr 2024
Awesome experience. The guide gave us a good history of the area. Saw a lot of alligators which the grandkids loved. They were able to hold a baby alligator which they loved. Would recommend

Great Bayou Tour!
Suzanne_F, Apr 2024
We really enjoyed this tour! Danny our captain was very knowledgeable about that specific area of the Bayou. It was so interesting to learn about what's considered more of the Deep South. The weather was surprisingly freezing, and I wasn't aware we'd get wet! I wish they informed you of that, but really it was inky cuz it was such a cold day! Either way we had a lot of fun and would definitely recommend and do it again!
