Captain James was so kind, funny, and knowledgeable! We saw about a dozen gators and had a great time. Would definitely recommend this tour!

The weather was great. We toured the bayous in Bayou Segnette state park. We saw lots of gators including one that was 14 feet long. We also saw birds and turtles. The captain was entertaining and told us many facts and stories about gators and the bayou. Well worth the time and money.

We took the Cajun Critters Swamp Tour after finding out about them through Groupon. The tour was incredible. We had no idea just how far and deep the swamps of Louisiana extend. Our tour guide- James- was incredibly knowledgeable after giving tours for 28 years and fishing in the swamps for even longer. He knew so much about the local... More

It was fun to take a beautiful ride all over the... More

We had a great afternoon on the water. The guide shared great stories of growing up in the bayou. He was very knowledgeable about the local plants and animals and gave us plenty of opportunities to get some amazing pictures. I would definitely recommend this tour and would love to come back in the spring. This time of year is... More

This was a lot of fun. It was great to see how quickly and effortlessly the alligators move through the water. There was a bit of cajun culture, very little bird life but it was a pleasant afternoon on the beautiful bayou.

Troy was a wonderful boat captain, extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife and plant life. He was very entertaining and we had a fun day looking at gators, raccoons, blue Herons and other birds.

A real fun tour. The boat wasn't overly big, so everyone had a good view. Our Captain, James had some good stories, and was very knowledgeable. He even let us bring a bucket of beer on the tour that we bought from the Mona Lisa Bar across the parking lot. Saw a lot of gators, although most were small because... More
