Overview

Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America. With the swamp tales of pirates and sightings of Big Foot in the back of your mind, you may be just a little bit nervous at first, but after your first boat ride you'll want to go back again and again! You'll be overcome by the primitive beauty of the cypress trees rising from the water...the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air....

We were on a tour last week with Captain Mel. He was very knowledgeable and friendly! We saw 6 alligators a 3 of them coming right up to the boat to get a wiener or marshmallow. It was much better than we expected!

Ok tour. Did not see much. Was hoping for something more eventful as it was a half day event. Driver of shuttle was probably the most informative.
