Swamp Boat Tour in New Orleans - Pckts - 01-03-2019

I was in the Big Easy this past week for the holiday and we did an air boat tour in hopes to see some Gators.
Unfortunately it was a bit too cold and we didn't get to see the Gators come out to bask since they'll stay in their caves they build on the bank until the water heats up then they'll come out to bask, if it's too cold they'll just stay in their cave coming up only to take a breath every 4-5 hours but other than that they stay in an almost hibernation state except for they are awake the entire time.

Here are some pics and info below

The smaller animals will bask before the larger ones for obvious reasons.

Sorry I don't have many better shots, I took some good videos but they don't transfer well, either way it was beautiful and fun. 
I definitely recommend it, usually seeing Gators is guaranteed but not when it's cold.
