Overview
Explore Louisiana’s beautiful and mysterious bayous on this covered boat tour departing from New Orleans. You’ll visit secluded Mississippi River swamps—keep an eye out for alligators and other wildlife—with a guide who’s familiar with the area and its Cajun culture. Included round-trip transportation from the French Quarter saves you time and money.
What to Expect

Your tour starts with pickup in New Orleans’ French Quarter. Relax on the bus ride out to the bayous, leaving the navigation and driving to someone else.

Once you reach the area, board a covered boat with your guide, and take to the swampy waters. Listen as your guide informs you about the area’s history and ecology, and get the opportunity to spot alligators and other wildlife native to the bayous.

Learn about the local culture, such as the origin of gumbo, and how the area’s residents work hard to guarantee the survival of the wetlands. Snap pictures of the swamps to take home, and gain a better understanding of this beautiful, often-misunderstood area.

Your tour ends with a drive back to the French Quarter.

I’m not sure. That being said, I remember there was a wooden ramp leading to the dock where the large boat stopped to load customers. The boat is wide and has two sides of metal bench seating with an aisle in between. I... More
