Coming from Texas I didn't know what to expect other than to see the swamp land and a couple gators but Wade was the whole nine yards. Unlike the walking tour we took of the french quarter which seemed like everything said was off the internet. Captain Wade explained everything with so much detail! From the trees to gators. Plus he got the gators real close up to the boat. He also gave off the an authentic local feel. I definitely recommend this tour!!

Fantastic experience, we did the small boat with Wade who was a super guide. I highly recommend it and if you are here from out of town it is a must.
