This 2 hr boat ride passed quickly. So many beautiful things to see. Our guide was excellent. Answered any and all questions. We saw many alligators even baby ones. Words cannot express the reaction to the mind and soul at the beauty surrounding you. Friendly people, knowledgeable and entertaining. I highly recommend them.

“Great tour for the price!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We've taken other tours and they were no where near as much fun and cast almost twice as much. The boat seats were very comfortable and the staff were very friendly and funny. We would recommend this tour service again and again. Just loved it!

I have lived in Louisiana my whole life and have seen the swamp many times. This was my first official tour and it was GREAT! We saw at least 20 alligators, egrets, Blue Herons, and many more birds and species. The boat ride was very comfortable and our tour guide was great. I think his name was Ronnie. The tour cost $20 and lasted almost 2 hours. It was worth every penny. Very educational.

“This is just the GREATEST swamp tour ever!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

We had a wonderful experience with Champane's Swamp Tour. The cost is so reasonable - $20.oo for 2 hours! The owners are friendly and helpful. The boats are comfy and our guide (Forrest) was wonderful. He truly loves the swamp and shared that love with all of us. He got us near alligators and birds without harassing them and found his way to a nest with tiny baby alligators. Unlike other tours, the owners have a warf where you can hang out and watch alligators and birds before and after your tour. A great place to hang out and have a beer.

We had so much fun on the tour that afterwards we rented kayaks and paddled around for another two hours on our own. The highlight of our trip! Highly recommended!
