Our Captain was Steven and the tour was great. We purchased through the New Orleans Power Pass and then upgraded to the air boat ride. This is well worth it as you get to see so much more than the regular boat.

It was really refreshing. It was so much fun. Our tour guide was dope. Met some locals. We got to be a part of the true culture of it. Every question I asked he knew what he was talking about. Best part of my visit.

Had a blast with Capt Mitch! He knows his way around the swamp! His enthusiasm is contagious! Got to pet a baby croc, have a bloody mary, and the wind in our hair!

We used Uber and it was about the same price but you did not have to sit on the bus while others were getting picked up and dropped off. Uber was the way to go!
