We offer swamp tours year round, but the summer is the best time to see big alligators! Here are some fun facts about this sulky species:

– With nearly 3 million gators, Louisiana has the most abundant alligator population in the U.S.!

– Alligators' spoon shaped jaws make it difficult to pick up food. They compensate by swallowing food whole which is digested by the strong acid in their stomachs; this acid is so strong, it can even digest steel!

– Despite their monster-like appearance, alligators rarely make unprovoked attacks on humans.  Crocodiles, on the other hand, found in salt water, can be quite aggressive. 

Learn more and see these creatures in their natural habitat on a our peaceful Cajun Bayou Tour or the fast, fun Airboat Tour!
