Swamp and Bayou Sightseeing Tour

Introduction

New Orleans has abundant wildlife, and nowhere is it more apparent than in the swamps and bayous of Louisiana. Take a boat ride through these swamps and you may see alligators, raccoons, snakes and native birds. You'll hear stories of the local Cajuns and how they created gumbo, now a New Orleans tradition.

After a short motorcoach ride across the Mississippi River, take a fascinating boat trip into the Louisiana Swamps and Bayous.

  • Experience the timeless beauty of Southern Louisiana in a custom built, all weather swamp boat.
  • Native guides will reveal the mysteries of the swamps and bayous and the Cajun "joie de vivre".
  • Hear how the Cajuns turned soup into gumbo, the washboard into a musical instrument, and the swamps of Louisiana into a paradise.
  • 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.
  • You will be treated to a Bayou Nature Wildlife Show by a local naturalist. Snakes, alligator snapping turtles, raccoons and nutria will be among the animal guests.
  • Learn about the efforts made to preserve and restore Louisiana's vanishing wetlands.
  • Bring your camera to capture the "bon temps" (good times) on the bayou.
