Absolute Must

So much fun! Plan to get wet, not a little wet, very wet but it was so much fun and worth it. Rocky was our guide and you could tell how much he enjoys being out there. Plenty of up close alligator interaction and beautiful areas of nature. I would take a trip back just to do this again.

Decent Experience

Pick up transport came 20 mins late. Was asked to wait in the hotel front at 8am. Waited almost 50 mins before 2 buses arrived about a minute apart. Went up the first and was told my name was not in the list. Was feeling crappy that the trip didn’t start well. Thankfully the next bus was right behind. The swamp tour was decent. Saw gators, insects (bees, dragonflies, mud skippers etc). Was hoping to see more wild life but it was rather “empty”. Was on the first tour in the morning and the animals might have a late night out the night before. Might be better to go for later tours. And the sun was blazing hot. Please remember your sun screen, shades and a cap. Wear UV clothings because you’re gonna be in the open for more than an hour. Entire experience was 4 stars but I’m giving it a 5 because they have clean dry toilets that doesn’t smell. 👍🏼

This swamp tour is amazing. The swamp is gorgeous and the tour guide was fantastic! We saw 30+ gators doing all kinds of things. My wife and I consider this to be the best moment of our 5 day vacation!

This was the most amazing tour of our trip! We had so much fun, and must have seen 40-50 gators. Our guide, Rocky was the BEST!! Full of info (born and raised native of the bayou), and as you can see by the picture, VERY comfortable around the gators! Would recommend this to EVERYONE!! Take the small boat tour if you really want to be able to get up close and fit into the narrow bayous that are off the beaten path!

Excellent tour. Not too far from New Orleans, pick up well organized. We were only 8 people on the airboat and the driver was very friendly. We saw many alligators! If not a sunny or very hot day, bring a coat and maybe a pair of pants. They also rent blankets if needed. But on a hot day, t-shirt is fine.

We loved this tour. It was easy to find the transportation, they drop you off at the airboat location and there is a gift shop and a bathroom. The tour itself was wonderful, our guide Rocky answered all our questions and tried extra hard to get us great pictures with the alligators!

Our airboat ride on the Intimigator was fantastic! Our guide was knowledgeable of the areas we visited and has a great understanding of alligators and other wildlife. We got close up pictures of some large alligators that were invited right up onto the front of the boat with some chicken. We also got to hold a baby alligator. The ride was a mixture of exhilaratingly fast to a slow picture taking pace past the wildlife and scenery. This is a must do for some family fun.

Our ticket was for a 10:20am pick up at a nearby hotel. We did not get any information on what to look for when being picked up. We asked the concierge at the hotel who provided us with the information that 10:20 was the starting time for all pick-ups in the city and not our assigned time and we were to look for "Alert Transportation". We were picked up between 10:45 and 11:00. The bus driver was nice and gave a little tour on the way to the swamp. The bus was air conditioned and comfortable. When we arrived, we checked in, then had a few minutes to use the bathroom and check out the small gift shop. The small air boats, large air boats, and pontoon boats were all going out at the same time. We enjoyed the small air boat. There was a space to secure your bag under your seat and they provided ear protection from the motor noise when the boat was going fast. We saw alligators! It was exciting. The guide was passionate about the gators and it was interesting to see the swamp and cypress trees. We were back on-time and the transportation was ready for us to head back to the hotel. It was a great experience!
