Despite down pours of heavy rain, our guide was great. We did see one gator and some wild life. The small gator on the boat was a special treat for my 6 year old who loved the experience. Kudos to a well thought out tour with interesting history! Definitely recommend!

My Swamp Tour Experience

about 2 years ago
The Tour Guide was awesome. Unfortunately, I can't recall his name but he was humorous and a risk taker too. He actually opened the side door and splashed water while throwing marshmallows saying "EC" or "TC" which he said the gators understood that mean come here. Unsure how true that is but is was entertaining to hear him call out. When the gator swam up to boat the tour guide tapped the head of the gator. The sound of that gator mouth when it closed was powerful! I enjoyed the swamp experience and I enjoyed, although a little scared, holding the baby alligator. I recommend and yes, I would do it again.
