  • Half-day swamp tour from New Orleans
  • Explore the Louisiana wetlands on a boat cruise
  • See native critters like alligators, raccoons, birds, and snakes
  • Learn about endangered ecosystems and conservation efforts
  • Great way to escape the city and experience bayou life
  • Choice of several daily departures
  • Includes a typical Louisiana po-boy lunch
Choose from several different departure times, and make your way to the Steamboat Natchez dock in the French Quarter, where you’ll climb aboard a coach for the ride across the Mississippi River and outside the city limits of New Orleans. Grab a provided to-go lunch including chips, bottled water, and a po-boy sandwich — a regional specialty served on a crisp French bread baguette.

After arriving at the launch point, board a cruising boat and set off through the calm wetlands channels that crisscross the region's famous swamps. Enjoy the lush, peaceful atmosphere and the 'bon temps' (good times) of the bayou as your captain points out the nesting grounds of native critters like egrets, raccoons, snakes, turtles, and the kings of the bayou, Louisiana ‘gators.

Learn about the delicate balance of this historic ecosystem and conservation efforts to restore eroded wetlands and protect native species. Be sure to keep your camera handy to capture these marvelous creatures in their native habitat. At the end of your swamp adventure, relax on the return coach ride to New Orleans, where the nearly 4-hour tour concludes back at the dock.
