Full description
Hop onto a small 16-passenger boat with a smaller tour group for more time to ask questions about the animals and life in the swamp. Enjoy the opportunity to connect on a more personal level with your Cajun captains. This close encounter swamp tour will be an event to remember. Immerse yourself in the history and culture of Cajun people, while coming in contact with wildlife, on a Louisiana backcountry tour. Set off on a journey into the mystical Manchac Swamp, experiencing sights, sounds, and stories that can’t be seen or heard anywhere else in the world. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the real high point of the tour, and see swamp creatures in their native habitat. Look out for reptiles, raccoons, and snakes peeking out from the underbrush or behind moss-draped trees. If you’re lucky, you may get to see the true King of the Bayou, the American alligator. Thanks to the safety and security of your boat, you may even be able to come within feet of this deadly creature.
