Had a blast with Captain Tucker! He not only shared some great history, but also some great jokes about living and visiting the swamp. Everyone we encountered there was super friendly and the directions that they provide are so much easier than my crazy GPS. Tour lasted about an hour and twenty minutes. We saw gators, birds and lots of... More

We loved every bit of this tour! Our Captain,Tucker, was so nice, very informative and knowledgeable. I loved that he called the alligators over to the boat by name, speaking French to them the whole time. (Plus one was named Marie). Beautiful swamp, the cypress and Spanish moss, turtles, birds and at least 10 alligators that came right up to... More

What a truly awesome tour. Our guide, Kim, was knowledgable, friendly, amusing and knew the swamps like the back of his hand to keep us away from other people. There was an abundance of alligators and wildlife. An incredible tour and great value for money. I cannot rate this tour or the guide highly enough - thank you so much... More

These tour arrangements were made with the simplest of ease. Upon arrival they take care of you, life vest (in great condition), ear protection (all disinfected), and even blankets for the cooler day. The marina was culturally decorative and clean. The Airboat was comfortable, stable, clean, and not as loud as I expected. The captain "Tucker" was extremely knowledgeable of... More

This was my first time on an airboat. The tour includes ear protection and you definitely need it. We went on the 11 am tour and although it we enjoyed it, it probably would have been better to take a later tour because as we found out from Captain Tucker, gators don't like cool and overcast which is what it...

We totally enjoyed our air boat tour, especially the bald cypress forest. The staff were all friendly,and we highly recommend. Easy to find- drive straight east through Henderson, turn right when you get to the levee and it's well-marked on the left about a mile down.
