What You Can Expect

Private Tour of the Honey Island Swamp with Round-Trip Transfer from New Orleans

Tour the Honey Island Swamp on our covered vessels

Begin your private tour with convenient pickup at your hotel in New Orleans, where you'll board a comfortable tour vehicle for the 45- to 60-minute drive to Slidell's West Pearl River. 

Once there, board a 14-passenger, flat-bottom boat, equipped with an ample sun shade. Spend the next 2 hours on a guided tour of Honey Island Swamp, nearly 70,000 acres (28,327 hectares) of protected wildlife preserve. Your wetland ecologist guide will point out all of the native flora and fauna in what is considered one of America's wildest swamps. You can expect to lay eyes on animals such as nutria, alligators, feral hogs, totters, bald eagles, and osprey. 

Pass through a Cajun fishing village, where locals catch crawfish, buffalo fish, alligator gar, and other native species. 

This private tour ensures undivided attention from your guide and a flexible timetable; you can focus on areas of interest and spend as much or as little time as you like in different spots. 

At the conclusion of your 2-hour tour, transfer back to New Orleans for drop-off.

We loved this tour. Steve was full of information about the wildlife and plants. Something that we had never done before and definitely was worth the private tour. Five stars for this we had a fantastic time.
