Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

My wife remembers a tour to see alligators back in the 1990's when she was in NOLA on an NEA national teacher's conference. So our party of four went, and Elsie found this tour highly rated. The Monday of Thanksgiving Week was clear blue and a bit cold. As a result our fabulous tour director, Captain Mel, up front said... More

We are in New Orleans visiting for 2 days with our two children ages 3 & 7. We decided to do the Honey Island Swamp Tour and we are so glad we did! We saw tons of turtles, a few native birds, and a few baby alligators. (apparently the warmer it is the more alligators you are likely to see.)... More

I just called this company 10 minutes ago to make a reservation for a tour and had a horrific experience with the guy on the phone. The first thing he did when he answered was ask me for a credit card number. The connection was cutting out a little, so I said "what?" and he YELLED at me asking for... More

The "2 hour" tour left late, went back to the dock to pick up latecomers, then arrived back to dock 15 minutes early. More like a 90 minute tour for the price of a 2 hour tour. Most of the time was spent on the river rather than the swamp. We very briefly saw one alligator but we were in... More

Captain Hunter was funny, knowledgeable, and courteous. We saw lots of cool wildlife and got a great feel for life on the swap with views of the local neighborhood. This tour is worth every penny!

Captain Charlie was very well versed with the swamp as he has spent most of his life nearby. We learned a lot, especially that you are more likely to spot alligators in the summer and in the sunshine. Bring warm clothes - they have a few jackets and blankets to borrow but you go fast at times and it's chilly.... More

I went on a 9 AM tour in early November. Tour is about two hours long. Boat is covered (not that important in November, probably more important when the sun is beating down in the middle of the summer). Our guide, Steve, was very good at spotting wildlife and telling us about the wildlife and about the local history. The... More

Nice swamp tour. We did cruise fast a few times, but overall, it was very laid back. I saw lots of birds, lots of turtles, 2 alligators, 2 raccoons (they were very social), some jumping fish and some swamp beetles. Nice scenery all around.

This was really fun and informative. Capt. Hunter was easily heard above the motor and knowledgeable! Didn't know what to expect and enjoyed the 2hour trip. Would do it again!!
