It sure about the dog. Call Captain Ron! He’s very friendly and won’t mind at all. There is a restaurant and catfish is their specialty. They were running weird hours when we were there so we didn’t get to go.

The restaurant is open Thursday through Sunday I believe. The swamp tour cost varies by time but is not expensive.
