With alligators, hidden villages, and snakes, Louisiana’s swamps can be scary to explore on your own. On this tour, your guide will keep you safe—and fill you in on Cajun history—while you explore the swampy territories. Visit areas of Honey Island Swamp you can only reach by boat, and learn about the area’s wildlife from your guide. Plus, round-trip transport from New Orleans makes for a no-hassle adventure.
What to Expect
Your tour starts from New Orleans. Sit back and relax on the drive over to Honey Island Swamp in Slidell. Once you arrive, your adventure begins at one of Louisiana’s last protected wetland areas.
Board a flat-bottom boat that your guide can easily maneuver through the foliage and narrow passageways. Explore the wildlife in the area, and keep an eye out for animals, such as alligators, wild boars, and snakes. You'll visit hard-to-reach spots of the swamp.
Your guide will tell you about the history of the swamp and its importance to the people who still live there in a small Cajun village. 
Afterward, enjoy a relaxing transfer back to New Orleans.

Our guide was very informative about the flora and fauna of the swamp as well as being very funny. We saw many alligators, a boar, a raccoon, many turtles, a few swamp spiders, and several types of birds.

It’s about a 40 minute drive by bus to the swamp. The swamp tour is about 2 hours.

Not sure, that would be a question for Cajun Encounters. I boarded a shuttle bus from the French Quarter.

There were smaller boats on the river the day we were there. I would suggest you phone Cajun Encounters and ask. But just don't miss this experience.
