About Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours
Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

My husband and I took our three kids (ages 9,7,&4) on the mid day trip. This was our first visit to the swamp and it did not disappoint! Captain Hunter was charismatic and knowledgeable. We were able to see a lot of the local wildlife from the safety of our boat, including raccoons, fish, turtles, birds, and many alligators! Hunter’s witty banter kept the experience comfortable for the kids and enjoyable for the adults. We would highly recommend this trip for any couple or family looking to see the beauty of Louisiana or even a quick trip for nearby travelers!

Fun for the whole family! Captain Hunter was great…lots of interesting information and jokes to keep us laughing. Saw quite a few gators along with lots of turtles, a bullfrog, birds and raccoons. Very cool tour and would definitely recommend as a fun family trip!

Sonny, our guide, was entertaining, informative and engaging with our grandsons. I do have a suggestion for your address link included in the confirmation email. Even though the address on Hwy 90 E was Slidell, La., clicking the link led to Hwy 90E in Des Allemans, La. Fortunately I read your instructions and checked google map so I didn’t drive to the wrong address. A simple fix would be to add the zip code to the clickable address.

My family really enjoyed this tour. We had a 12 year old and 8 year old and both had a blast. We saw 11 gators, 6 raccoons, a snake and some turtles. Our tour guide Hunter did an amazing good and had us laughing. This was the best part of our trip and I highly recommend this tour.
