    This was my first time kayaking and it was a scary at first. I quickly learned that it is not scary when we got on the water. The group I was with and the tour guides were very helpful in teaching me how to use a kayak. They would also reassure me that I was doing fine and also did well making sure everyone was doing well. The scenery was beautiful, especially for the sunset tour.

    Even though the temperature dropped a day or two before we arrived in New Orleans, and it’s hibernation season for the gators, we still saw quite a few! The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable and it was overall a great experience. The gators would swim right up to our boat. Highly recommend!

    From booking online to taking the swamp tour, everything went perfectly. Everyone in our party, 5 of us, totally enjoyed the tour and all of the info that the captain had to share. Very entertaining, informing, fun time and we saw gators, turtles, and a bunch of racoons. Fair price too.
