Cajun Encounters Reviews

We had captain Sam for our tour and it was one of the best things we have done. So knowledgable, funny, kind we had the best day of our month trip on the US! And we saw tonnes of gators, snakes, spiders, raccoons. It was awesome. Joy was also an incredible bus driver and loved hearing all of her knowledge and very moving accounts of the communities experience of hurricane Katrina.

Amazing! Our tour guide Captain John was AMAZING! He was hilarious. He stopped and got us as close to the animals as he could. He was so informative. We are locals and enjoyed the boat ride and seeing the animals closer than we normally see them! ;) All around great trip! We will definitely be back!

The most amazing, entertaining tour we’ve done so far. Our tour guide Emmit was great. He kept the tour engaging with his comical style facts. I definitely recommend and the sunset views are picturesque. So worth the humidity and the alligators are insane to see. I would do it again if given the chance. Staff is very pleasant and courteous in the gift shop. Everyone was all around fabulous.

Captain Desi was the best! Not only was Desi very knowledgeable about alligators and Honey Swamp, but his deep background in conservation efforts and ecology, which provided for many answered questions and anecdotes, shined through the entire tour. We toured two different areas- one deep in the swamp, the other on the river, and we saw nearly 10 alligators, a wild boar and raccoon up close and personal, endangered turtles, several types of beautiful birds, and plenty of plant life. The tour was very interesting and fun, and it’s a must if you want to get out in nature or love and appreciate animals. Steve and Desi, you guys both provided a 5-star experience, from start to finish! Thank you!!

We have been booking swamp tours with Cajun Encounters for 10 years. We love their tours so much that we book specially with them every time we are in town. We have done both where they pick us up or we drive to the location it just depends on if we have plans after the tour and want the flexibility to drive to dinner or have other plans. Tours start on time so get there early and check in to get your wristband.

Every single boat tour is different and your captain is sure to provide you with a lot of information and history of the area. Our most current visit was 6/10/22 with captain Scott D. He was an amazing guide and went above and beyond to provide the best experience on this trip. We saw 4-5 different bird species, visited the wishing well tree, saw a large boar that he fed right in front of us and we saw countless gators, on top of all the beautiful views the swamp offers.
