Reviews of Honey Island Swamp Boat Tour With Optional Transportation from New Orleans

Super Guide Worth every penny
Our guide Luca was a very kind, entertaining and knowledgeable man whom we really enjoyed. We saw plenty of wildlife and a small insight to how some who live in the swamps live. Worth every penny!

Cajun Encounters was a great tour. Had a great guide (Sonny) and had no trouble checking in. Problem free. Would recommend it to others.

Very good Swamp Boat Tour
The swamp boat tour was very good and Luca was a knowledgeable and great guide. He kept the passengers engaged and entertained throughout the 2 hour trip. It was a cold January morning, which is why no gator surfaced (depends on the luck and if you can notice one) but we still saw some wildlife and predator birds in the swamp. Overall a good experience. I'd like to return someday when it's warmer and take the tour again.

Best experience!
We had a beautiful day!Our guide was Jacob and he did a great job!We got to see gators. We got up close with 3 raccoons and wild pigs. We had great photos. I would suggest bringing a wind breaker if the temps are in lower 70's and you sit in front of boat. Great tour!

Lots of fun
We had a great time. Captain John was excellent. He made us feel right at home. We loved his stories and the way he called the pigs in! I thought he was pulling our leg when he holler’d out “come on pigs”. Great guy and great tour!! Fun way to spend a birthday weekend. P.S. I hope they find Cpt. John’s ex wife!

Had a great time!
The Honey Island Swamp Tour had everything I wanted to see. We had the chance to see alligators (that lurk in the water and come towards your boat when the captain is enticing them with food), raccoons, and a few pigs (one named mama and the other was oreo), both of which were adorable. We also learned about plant and home life along the swamp. It was pretty incredible to see. Also, shout out to our driver Kim and tour guide Captain Anthony. They were both very funny, knowledgable, and you just felt good being around them. They wanted the participants to have a good time and I was very happy with them.

First trip but not our last.
We had a wonderful time. Our Captain was very knowledgeable, funny and patient (had to get pictures). I would definitely recommend it. We will be doing a tour again soon.

Great tour. Would of liked a lot more of the French Quarter but others in the party were interested in Cemeteries so best of both worlds.

CAPT LUKA IS THE BEST! Our private boat tour of the Honey Island Swamp was phenomenal! Our group can't stop talking about it. Luka was very informative about the area, the wildlife and how the ecosystem works. You can tell he really loves his job as well as his home state and it was a pleasure to be on his tour. A huge bonus was being so close to Oreo the pig and George Cooney the raccoon! Literally, the most up close and personal I've ever been on a swamp boat with the wildlife. Thank you Capt Luka for taking these Florida gals on a great ride! We can't wait to come back and take another ride with you!

A family must do outing!
I took my kids, 11 and 12, and they had an absolute blast! I was worried 2 hours on a boat would bore them but they were not bored at all. They actually said “that didn’t seem like 2 hours at all.” Our captain Sonny was hilarious, knowledgeable, and definitely captivated his audience. The check in process could definitely use some updating. (Get there early enough to get your wristbands so you don’t have to wait in a cramped up trailer for 30+ minutes.) But the tour itself was perfect! Thanks for a great first time swamp tour!
