Overview
Take an afternoon swamp tour across the Mississippi River and go into the heart of Cajun Country. Experience the swamps and its many inhabitants, some scary, some cute, from a comfortable and covered peaceful pontoon boat.
What to Expect
Louisiana's Bayou Country offer a spectacular amount of wildlife, and on this tour you will get up-close-and-personal with alligators, turtles, nutrias, and some spectacular waterfowl. Located just a short drive from New Orleans, it offers a true escape from the bustle of the city in a wild bayou environment.

Drive out to Cajun Country through cypress swamps, traveling over the Mississippi River on an impressive suspended bridge. See vast sugarcane fields, as your guide tells the story of the odyssey of the Cajun people.

You will then go on a 90-minute narrated boat tour, drifting on a slow and covered pontoon boat through the winding bayous and remote cypress swamps of southwest Louisiana. Your Cajun guide is also an alligator hunter and fur trapper and will tell great stories of bayou life, as well as share knowledge of the reptile habits, healing plants, and exotic birds you will be looking out for.

Keep your eyes open for alligators, raccoons, snakes and native birds, such as the Louisiana Blue Heron, White Egrets, Barred Owls, and more.

After the peaceful pontoon boat ride through the bayou, explore the picturesque Swamp Zoo of Bayou Boeuf to get even more views of the critters of the swamp.
