What you can expect

The steam rises from the surface of the water as you cruise through the Louisiana wetlands on a fascinating boat tour of the bayou. Your expert guide leads the way through this marshy wonderland as he shares legends and stories of the swamp and its people.

As the boat glides along untamed canals, observe the inlets and still waters of the river to better understand this rich environment. Your guide shares vital facts about potential threats to the swamp and the efforts that are being undertaken to save its fragile ecosystem.

Catch glimpses of the lush vegetation and inhabitants of the winding streams. Drifting alligators, stoic egrets, and snakes slithering along branches of mossy cypress trees are only some of the visitors you meet on a fact-filled excursion through this damp, dense terrain.

We offer roundtrip transportation from select hotels in New Orleans. If you have selected transportation, please confirm hotel pickup with one of our staff members 24 hours prior to your tour.
