Emmett was a great captain and tour guide. We got to see plenty of gators, raccoons, and wild pigs in the swamp. Emmett was very knowledgeable and very entertaining, making the tour both education and fun.

As you go, keep an eye out for wildlife, including alligators, snakes, wild boars, and birds. Make sure to have your camera ready so you can snap pictures, too. Your guide also takes you to a Cajun village in the swamp that’s used the area for medicine, food, and other everyday needs for years.Your New Orleans swamp and bayou tour ends back at the docking point in Slidell.
