What You Can Expect

Swamp and Bayou Sightseeing Tour with Boat Ride from New Orleans

Swamp and Bayou Sightseeing Tour

Choose a morning or afternoon pickup from the French Quarter and climb aboard your coach for the ride deep into Cajun country. Enjoy the changing scenery as the cityscape transitions into expansive wetlands. You coach delivers you to the launch point across the Mississippi River, where you’ll transfer to an open‐sided, covered boat and set off on the fun and educational ride.

Your knowledgable native guides will take you on an unforgettable 2‐hour wildlife‐spotting expedition through this legendary Louisiana terrain. Glide along the water, viewing the lush greenery and abundant local wildlife, including nesting alligators, egrets, raccoons, snakes and giant nutria. True animal enthusiasts will love getting an up‐close (and interactive) look at some of the ‘friendlier’ animals. Get great photos and learn about the history and mystery of the swamps, including the culture and ingenuity of the Cajun people who have populated this region for almost 250 years. Your guides will share stories about Cajun music, bayou lifestyle and culinary traditions — like the creation of Louisiana’s signature gumbo, as well as information about the region’s passionate wetland preservation efforts.

Your coach returns to the French Quarter by mid‐afternoon or evening.

Really fun, informative tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny. The bayou was beautiful. We saw a whole bunch of gators and 4 or 5 great blue herons, plus turtles and catfish.

Escursione serena in mezzo a una natura fantastica. Andare in Louisiana e non visitare il Bayou è un crimine. Consigliatissima. Noi siamo partite da New Orleans ed è stato tutto perfetto. Grazie a tutto lo staff.
