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.

Lots of fun and informative - a great day trip. It was definitely a world away from Bourbon Street and a very nice diversion.

This was a really great tour especially on the Fourth of July .w.hat better way to spend the holiday, I forgot our tour guides name but he was really good. The boat is great for the covering. I'm sorry y'all but those airboats with no covering..the Louisiana sun is just too hot for that so I'm glad I chose this type instead. Also this boat was quiet in comparison to those airboats. One went flying past us and it was extremely loud. We got to see e bayou that the princess and the frog was drawn from, we got to feed the alligators, hold a baby one and there was nice breeze. Guide also told us about some of the birds and plant life we saw..again great tour. I would definitely do this again when back in Louisiana
