I had such a great time on the swamp tour with Cajun Encounters! Captain Steve was fantastic and shared so many interesting facts about the local flora and fauna. He kept it fun and relevant. We saw so many alligators up close, along with some other swamp friends! Our bus driver, Amber, was also lovely—she taught us a lot about the history of New Orleans and kept us laughing the entire ride. I highly recommend this tour.

This was the absolute greatest experience!! Captain Zander was fun, smart, and you could tell how much he really cares about the people on his tour and what he does. I took my 3 young kids who are nervous kiddos in new environments. He made them feel safe and taught them a lot. We all had a fantastic time. It was beautiful and full of excitement. Definitely a memory that will last forever!

We stated our tour off with a bus pickup. Our driver D was absolutely amazing! We loved the tour that she gave us as we drove to the swamp location. She was phenomenal! Our boat captain Aily was amazing! He was a great captain, we got up close with all kinds of wildlife- alligators, herons, raccoons, and more! My family and I had a wonderful time! 10/10!

From start to finish, the whole tour was overwhelmingly positive. Everything went smoothly, we always felt safe and well-informed. Our bus driver, Larry gave amazing commentary throughout the ride, pointing out different communities, landmarks, buildings, making us laugh and wowing us with his storytelling & historical facts. The boat was very comfortable and it didn't make lots of noise so as not to scare off the wildlife. Our tour captain, Emmett SERIOUSLY impressed us with his expert boating skills & his expansive know... read more

We started with pickup on the bus, which was efficient and smooth. Our bus driver, Amber, was awesome and it was like a mini tour of New Orleans on the drive which was an unexpected delight. Then Captain Dustin took us out to see gators and it was so great. We saw tons of wildlife and never felt rushed. He knew an enormous amount about the swamp, and clearly does this because he loves it. Honestly, I was worried Cajun Encounters was too big of an operation to feel authentic, but reality was the opposite. The pontoon was a g... read more
