Nowhere is Louisiana’s wildlife more abundant than in the swamps and bayous of New Orleans . After crossing the Mississippi River, take a boat ride through these swamps and bayous and be on the lookout for alligators, raccoons, snakes, turtles and native birds. Hear stories from your guide about local Cajun culture and the mysteries of the swamps and bayous.
After a short coach ride across the Mississippi River, embark on a fascinating 2 hour boat trip through the swamps and bayous of New Orleans! Watch the timeless beauty of Southern Louisiana unfold as you travel through the bayous and swamps in a custom built, all-weather boat.

Your local guide will reveal the mysteries of this iconic Louisiana terrain as you observe the nesting grounds of native wildlife. Discover how the seafood from the bountiful waters provides a wide assortment of delectable local dishes! Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria, and many species of snakes. Some wildlife are more numerous during the warmer months of the year.

Along the way, learn all about Cajun culture and ingenuity — hear how Cajun people turned soup into gumbo, a famous Louisiana dish; the washboard into a musical instrument; and, of course, the swamps into a natural paradise. Your guide will also explain how these lush, untamed swamps and bayous are slowly disappearing. Learn about the efforts made to preserve and restore Louisiana's vanishing wetlands for future generations to enjoy. You'll return safely from the bayous with a return coach ride to the French Quarter in New Orleans.

Our tour guide was fantastic! He had his own alligator on board, which scared the day lights out of me! Feeding the alligators was the high lite for myself. I could of stayed there the entire day, funny as, I did not want to go because I was scared. Just goes to show you, have a knowledgable guide with just enough humour and a swamp filled with alligators, that is all it took!
Thank you again.
You will need a fund just for marshmallow, at the rate I was feeding them!

Fantastic few hours spent on the boat. The Tour guide was excellent although a bit difficult to understand his accent but it made it more exciting.
