Mitchell's Swamp Adventures
Swamp Boat Tours Information
Thanks so much for contacting us with your boat tour questions.
Why are we different?
This is not a huge group tour – Bruce will be your guide – you will be riding in the same 22ft surface drive boat that he hunts gators in! Bruce was born and raised hunting in the passes and bayous b/w Lake Maurepas and the famous Lake Pontchartrain! You will get a one on one adventure with Bruce as he guides you through the swamps, bayous and passes with stories, landmarks and let's not forget the animals you may see! Gators, snakes, turtles, nutria rats, frogs, birds and so much more! Every where you look the scenery is absolutely breathtaking.
Boat will hold up to 4 adults (not including Bruce). Tour rate is $500.00 flat fee for a 3 hour tour. Tours may go over the 3 hours-please inform Bruce of any time constraints.
½ down is required to book the tour – we will invoice you by paypal for the deposit amount of $250.00. $200.00 of the deposit is refundable if you cancel the tour 2 weeks before the booked date – after that the deposit is non-refundable.
The remaining tour payment will be accepted the day of the tour – cash or money order please.
Rain checks are available and must be scheduled with the same procedures as the original tour.
Tour days available:
Tours will preferably book on weekdays – in advance and by reservation appointment only.
Best time to get on the water is in the morning – it's much cooler and bearable!
9am is Bruce's preferred choices.
Please be on time for the tour – Bruce will be waiting for you at the meeting point for only 30 minutes after tour was supposed to begin – if you are running behind – please call and let him know!
For ease of access – Bruce will meet his tour guests at the public parking lot in Ponchatoula get directions here . From there – Bruce and guests will travel separately – about 10 minutes to the public boat launch in “Manchac”, LA - a local name for the city of Akers, LA.
