Understanding Alligators in Your Journey

Alligator Behavior

Curious about why alligators bask with mouths wide open? It's not just for show, it helps regulate their body temperature! Join our guided tours to uncover these intriguing facts and witness alligators in their natural habitat.


Alligators were once endangered but have made a remarkable recovery. They are now listed as a species of "Least Concern" due to successful conservation efforts.

Diet and Hunting

Alligators, being opportunistic feeders, have a diverse palate that includes fish, birds, turtles, and mammals, solidifying their status as apex predators in their habitats.

You might even get the chance to witness this in action!

Larger groups (6+) are recommended to book weeks to months in advance of the trip to secure the best possible boat and time slot. So book as soon as you know you will be in the area. We also can take last minute bookings and will do everything we can to accommodate!
We recommend wearing whatever you feel comfortable in. We will be out on the water, so we recommend leaving loose jewelry and watches behind to avoid the possibility of losing your belongings. If it’s a Louisiana sunny day, make sure to bring some sunscreen! You should always dress comfortably. If it is cooler outside it is good to wear warmer clothes, especially on an airboat. Bring a jacket, too!

However, severe weather can abbreviate or cancel tours.
Our covered tour boat will allow a standard width wheelchair to board.
