Frankly It was a lot more fun than I expected. My daughter wanted to go because she had never been in the swamps nor on an air boat. I grew up around them. The day was perfect and we zipped from lakes to bayous to canals and saw gators big and small along with a variety of

Larry was an excellent tour guide. Informative, funny, and with a true local flair. We saw several alligators and much of the swamplands before a huge storm hit and we had to go back. Larry got us back to the dock quickly but it made the tour all the more fun and a great story!

Husband, two teen ladies, and I enjoyed the two hour airboat swamp tour today - saw gators, turtles, cranes and fish (no snakes). Definitely bring your jacket and sunscreen, and wear the provided ear protection. It's obvious that Captain Ernie loves the bayou and its creatures;
