This was a lot of fun. It was great to see how quickly and effortlessly the alligators move through the water. There was a bit of cajun culture, very little bird life but it was a pleasant afternoon on the beautiful bayou.

Troy was a wonderful boat captain, extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife and plant life. He was very entertaining and we had a fun day looking at gators, raccoons, blue Herons and other birds.

A real fun tour. The boat wasn't overly big, so everyone had a good view. Our Captain, James had some good stories, and was very knowledgeable. He even let us bring a bucket of beer on the tour that we bought from the Mona Lisa Bar across the parking lot. Saw a lot of gators, although most were small because... More

I've never been anywhere near a swamp so I was really excited to go on this tour. Captain James picked us up from our hotel and we headed towards Westwego. James was so funny and taught us a lot about the environment, different wildlife and his experience. This tour felt more like a family boat ride than a tourist swamp... More

Captain James was hilarious- the two hour tour itself was fun and full of tons of wildlife sightings and he had a lot of good information. But his personality is what really made the excursion even that much more fun. He was very welcoming and goofy and kept everyone entertained. We saw lots of smaller alligators and tons of birds,...

Our guide did a nice job and actually got a small alligator for everyone to pet and hold! Kids got a kick out of it.

I can't say enough positive comments about this tour! It was me, my husband and our 17 & 13 yr old daughters. This tour was amazing, informative and relaxing. The captain shared family stories of his life on the bayou along with his knowledge. He happily pointed out animals, plants & taught us all about all of them. The ride... More

Paid for transportation as well as the tour and Captain James picked me up at exactly half 8 from my hostel in the Garden District. Drove to the boat and waited for the othe guests then set off. Beautiful day which made the swamp look even better. Saw alligators, turtles and loads of types of birds. Captain James was charming,... More

This experience was so fun! The captain was knowledgeable and passionate about the swamp, alligators, trees, birds, and other wildlife. We also enjoyed doing a tour this way instead of an airboat. The airboats are extremely loud!

We rented a car and drove out to Westwego on our own. Not a far drive at all. Capt James was waiting for us. We enjoyed seeing the small alligators and birds and hearing about life in the bayou.
