Great way to see the Bajou. Capt Luka was funny, informative and a great guide. Other than missing the pigs, we saw a good amount of wildlife. And thanks for the food tips Capt Luka, you were spit on!

One of the very best tours we have taken throughout the years! Exploring the swamp and bayou was a truly memorable experience. Great informative guide and encounters with raccoons, various sea birds, even fed a wild pig! This tour is a must!
