Always The Best

These guys are simply the best out there. Always an entertaining and pleasurable tour. Took this tour before Covid and saw wild boar. The habits of the wildlife have changed since the tours stopped for a year. I hope more wildlife will return in the future.

Captain Hunter was a great tour guide…very knowledgeable and entertaining! He knew exactly where to find the animals. We had great weather and were able to see so many gators. The raccoons were a cute surprise.

The tour itself was really fun! Our guide was kind of not nice, but the other workers there seemed really nice. An older guy with white hair was very kind, wish he had been our tour guide. We saw several alligators and even saw one come out of the water with a huge fish in its mouth, so that was exciting!!!

These Guys Never Disappoint

This is the third time I've taken this tour. Honey Island Swamp guides are incredible. The whole company is very customer service oriented. We saw plenty of gators, from all sizes. However, since Covid the other wild animals have changed their habits since not relying on the tours for food. Kind of missed seeing wild boar. Hopefully they will start migrating back. No other river or swamp tour I would take. Chris, and now his son, Conner, are wonderful guides that keep your attention.
