Great trip

Our group took this tour through the Atchafalaya and it was amazing. Beautiful scenery, great guide. We are from Louisiana but this trip was well worth the money.

We went on the boat tour (not airboat) because I wanted to see wildlife without disturbing it with a lot of noise. With these guys you slide quietly through the bayou, past stumps of swamp trees which died when this area first flooded back in 1927. Down one of the side inlets we saw 5 gators, close!! One was swimming... More

We initially went to a nearby neighbouring enterprise, but sadly they had no bookings in and wanted $150 for two of us as it required a supplement. I did notthink that this represented real value so we walked. We then happened upon Basin Landing next and I was so pleased we did. They were busy and fitted us into the... More

Been on water all my life so didn't think that much about going. Wife wanted to go. Craig did an awesome job as our guide!! Saw gators many, birds, snakes, and the airboat trail he took us on was unreal. Sliding in mud and over logs on the airboat. Excellent. DO THIS. 337-228-7880

Air Boat bumping and bouncing through the cypress, then ripping along the open waterways .. to me the wildlife was secondary, we saw some birds, a turtle and then the sort of friendly alligators, which are hand feed which were just awesome. Air boats are loud so they tend to scare away a lot of the wild life, however bouncing... More

I took this tour with 2 teenagers. The airboat was great. Ear protection was provided. A car engine was mounted on the back of the boat. The captain grew up in the swamp and knew a lot about alligators. He had friendship with a group of alligators. We saw 5-7 foot alligators, baby alligators, a nest with alligator eggs about... More

We came on a very short notice and we got a tour straight away. the service was great. Crocodile Dave was an excellent tour guide. We were so lucky to see Buttercup, Peanut and mama alligator with her young ones. We highly recommend this place for anyone who wants to see the swamp in Louisiana.

Very fair price for something I could never do back home. 90 minutes was actually 2 hours and worth every penny. Tucker provided great personal knowledge (having grown up there) and great information (college educated). Highlight of our time in BR.

Last week I booked a last minute excursion at Basin Landing and they penciled me in with no problem. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. Really great customer service. My tour guide, Tucker Friedman, was very knowledgable and made it a pleasant air boat ride. I will be definitely recommending this to everyone looking for a fantastic experience near... More

Love the look of this swamp and basin and was honestly afraid to get too close to water not knowing wats down there watching me but also I think this area is home to swamp people
