    Lots of fun

    We had a great time. Captain John was excellent. He made us feel right at home. We loved his stories and the way he called the pigs in! I thought he was pulling our leg when he holler’d out “come on pigs”. Great guy and great tour!! Fun way to spend a birthday weekend. P.S. I hope they find Cpt. John’s ex wife!

    Best experience!

    We had a beautiful day!Our guide was Jacob and he did a great job!We got to see gators. We got up close with 3 raccoons and wild pigs. We had great photos. I would suggest bringing a wind breaker if the temps are in lower 70's and you sit in front of boat. Great tour!

    CAPT LUKA IS THE BEST! Our private boat tour of the Honey Island Swamp was phenomenal! Our group can't stop talking about it. Luka was very informative about the area, the wildlife and how the ecosystem works. You can tell he really loves his job as well as his home state and it was a pleasure to be on his tour. A huge bonus was being so close to Oreo the pig and George Cooney the raccoon! Literally, the most up close and personal I've ever been on a swamp boat with the wildlife. Thank you Capt Luka for taking these Florida gals on a great ride! We can't wait to come back and take another ride with you!
