New Orleans: Manchac Bayou Swamp Cruise with Optional Pickup

1. New Orleans: Manchac Bayou Swamp Cruise with Optional Pickup

Join this tour in the Manchac Swamp on a real life adventure for the whole family. Your local captains will take you on an exciting journey to explore Louisiana's abundant wildlife in the bayous of Cajun Country. Journey by boat, Cajun-style, for a tour through the heart of Southern Louisiana's swamplands. Your swamp boat will take you into the meandering bayous where you'll see moss-draped cypress trees, fascinating plant life, and the creatures who make their homes here. Listen to informative commentary as you sail into the bayou. Swamp creatures are used to seeing the tour boats, so you'll likely catch a glimpse of various birds, snakes, deer, and fish, and possibly even an alligator. As your boat drifts through the waterways, you will learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp–particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator–as well as the unique history of the local Cajun town of Frenier.

Fantastic experience. Worth every penny. Short trip from the city and we saw more alligators then we could count. Tons of photo opportunities. Our tour guide fed them off the boat so we could see them up close. We even got to hold a little baby! Perfect little outing from the city!

Easy to book, a little mixup with the pickup location but the guys were nice. Great driver Big Joe and his great playlist. The swamp was peaceful and T Tim was wonderful. A must-do! We saw so much wildlife (April) and the boat was so great for viewing. What a great day!!!

This was definitely one of my favorite tours here in Louisiana. We had a young tour guide he was very funny and entertaining. We didn’t bring our kids but it is definitely kid friendly. The ones on the tour were having the best time.

This tour was amazing! Tour guide was amazing and all the workers at the place. Thank you again!

Our guide for the swamp tour was the best! Caption Brandon!
