Swamp & Plantation Tour

The swamp tour was an amazing experience! Being on the bayou, in all of nature was quite refreshing. The captain was knowledgeable, and thorough in his presentation on the reptiles, vegetation, existing swamp stereotypes and life on the bayou. Plantation tour presentation was rather boring.
