  The guys in hats tour the swamp.

This was so much fun. There are several types of swamp tours available. There is the large boat tour. Its the least expensive. You are on a large boat with about seventy other tourists taking a slow ride through the swamps. There is also a twelve person air boat. This is a fast boat ride that goes a little deeper into the swamps. The price is a little more expensive than the river boat. However we took the six person airboat. It cost us $75.00 each. But it was worth the extra cost. The ride is VERY fast. We had to turn our hats around backwards to keep from losing them. The ride takes you deep into the swamp areas and back into small little inlets and coves. The scenery is beautiful.

Here in the picture the driver took our boat out of the water and up onto a mud bank. Then he stopped the boat and got out and took pictures for us. It was wild. Then he got back into the boat, started up the engine and drove us back into the water.
