Had a great time on our swamp tour! We had James as our guide and he was great! It was very cool to hold the baby alligator and see the other alligators in their habitat as well. Highly recommend a swamp tour with Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours!!

Captain Randy was awesome! Had a lot of great information about the bayou and found some great animal spots. He even was able to catch a seven year old gator by hand so we could pet it!

We were really excited to take a swamp tour. This one was interesting, but did not really go deep in the swamp like we expected. We did see a quite a few alligators and some eagles. It seemed a bit overpriced.

We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy the tour as much as you expected. Maybe an airboat tour would have been more to your liking. It's for the adventurous and the airboats take you deep into the swamp! Thank you for your review.

Cpt. Randy was amazing. Growing up on the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas I have seen gators a plenty. I have even , unwisely, handled a few. What set this trip apart for me was the first hand knowledge from a guide who cares deeply about the area and its future. This tour was easily the highlight of our trip. Will go again and bring the next group of visitors with.

We reserved a 21 seat airboat with Captain Randy as our guide. What a great adventure! We were celebrating my birthday with many family members. Cpt. Randy gave us an exceptional tour and ride around the many bayous. We saw many alligators starting with four at the dock. Beautiful area. Wonderful people. Great tour company. Definitely will do again in the future. Great price on the full boat rental.
