1. Birdwatching is a Great Way to Connect with Nature and the Surrounding Wildlife
2. Why Our Small Tour Boats are Perfect for Birdwatching
Our 22 passenger boats or our small, VIP boats will offer you an ideal opportunity to explore areas of the Honey Island Swamp that bigger boats cannot access. Our 10-passenger skiffs will allow you to venture into the shallow, vegetated waterways where birds seek some cover, boosting your chances of seeing some incredible species while on the journey.
These custom-built skiffs operate just inches above the water line, comparable to an airboat, but without the ear-piercing noise of an airboat engine. Travel through winding bayous and sloughs with our professional ecological tour guides, then come to a stop and enjoy the silence of the swamp. With a 360-degree view from the boat, you’re sure to spot something that will pique your interest!
