I notice in the "Things To Do" area that there seems to be a controversy about the type of boat in which to take a swamp tour. Some believe that the more powerful airboat gives the opportunity to get deeper into the swamp while others see the airboat as destroying the swamp. I want to take a swamp tour when I am there, so I appreciate any feedback in this matter.
I take it that the "swamp tours" are actually given on Lake Martin.
We would prefer a swamp tour in which the alligators and other animals are not treated as "trained animals" by giving them marshmallows to see them come to the boat or do other "tricks", like "tickling" them under the chin. We want to see them respected as the wild animals they truly are in their natural habitats. Any feedback in
this regard is also appreciated.
