What You Can Expect

Honey Island Swamp Tour

Get close with local wildlife

Your morning or afternoon swamp adventure begins in Slidell, Louisiana – an approximate hour‐long drive from New Orleans across Lake Pontchartrain.  Here you will find Honey Island Swamp, a wildlife preserve that is one of the last protected wetlands in Louisiana. Board the custom‐made, open‐air boat and set off on an educational ride. Holding a max of 22 passengers, this boat offers a more intimate experience as your group quietly winds through narrow swamp passages and gets you closer to native wildlife.
Your expert guide’s commentary makes this an unforgettable wildlife‐spotting expedition through myth‐laden Louisiana terrain. Glide along the water, viewing the lush greenery and abundance of wild animals, including alligators, owls, raccoons, snakes, black bears, bald eagles and wild boar. True animal enthusiasts will love getting an up‐close (and interactive) look at some of the ‘friendlier’ animals. Get great photos and learn more about the famous regional alligator, who can tip the scales at 1,000 pounds (453 kg). Also learn about the culture and ingenuity of the Cajun people who have – for more than two centuries – inhabited this area and used it as a source of food and medicine. Your guide will take you by a secluded Cajun village that can only be accessed by boat. Throughout the ride, hear stories about the bayou lifestyle, as well as information about the region’s passionate wetland preservation efforts.
Your fun and enlightening boat tour returns to Slidell. This tour does not include transport back to New Orleans.

wonderful, guide knew all about the flora and fauna, and seemed to have a personal relationship with the alligators. he saw and pointed out things that I never would have noticed, all with humor, very entertaining. problem is that there is another honey island swamp tour, so a differentiation of the name would help, as we went to the wrong place first.

The tour of the swap was great. The captain of the boat was knowledgeable and very entertaining. Alligators come right up to the boat. Lots of different birds. Beautiful views in the backwaters.
