Was a Beautiful Day and the tour was fun. The man (sorry forgot his name) was friendly and very informative with the history of the area, and the details of the wildlife. We enjoyed ourselves.

Enjoyed the swamp tour. Brought family from out of state and they enjoyed the tour very much. Enjoyed how much Captain knew about local history and the local flora and fauna. Will definitely come back.
