We enjoyed the swamp tour today! Our Captain, Larry, did a great job. The price was great and our three teenage sons enjoyed the 1.5 hour bayou tour. The tour included history about the bayou and canals. Even though it was December we still saw plenty of alligators and other wildlife. There is no doubt in warmer weather you will see a lot of alligators in their natural habitat.

Capt' Jason was the BEST!!! Very knowledgeable and informative. He took us to all of his best spots and I highly recommend checking it out. Bring a jacket, it gets chilly in the bayou in December. We even got a baby gator to hold.
