Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT KIND OF ANIMALS WILL WE SEE?
There are all sorts of avians, reptiles, insects and mammals in the swamp. They all can be more active at different hours depending on the conditions, weather and season. Your boat captain will put you on the best tour possible to see as much as possible.
WHEN DO THE BOATS RUN?
Boats leave the dock at 9:45AM, 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm (if there is enough daylight for the 6pm tour). It is important that you be there 30 minutes before so you have plenty of time to check in.

Yes! We have boats other than airboats that you can enjoy the swamp in. We have covered boats that are not loud and provide shade from the sun.

We have small Airboats that seat 6-8 people. Larger Airboat seating 10 or 16 people and Covered Tour Boats
WHAT IS A RIDE IN A COVERED BOAT LIKE?
A covered boat is a larger boat with an awning that seats more people. It is not loud, unlike an airboat, and moves slower through the swamp. Great for photography!

ARE THERE MOSQUITOES IN THE SWAMP?
Yes, but they rarely come out during the day. Please leave the spray at home
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS BAD?
Weather calls are up to the boat captain, as he is the subject matter expert. Typically storms blow over fairly quickly and you are still able to get on the water and enjoy your swamp tour. However, severe weather can abbreviate or cancel tours.

Of course, It’s Louisiana! Let the good times roll! Please keep in mind this is a family friendly tour.
