What you can expect

Head out on an all-weather boat to uncover the mysteries of the swamps, bayous, and the Cajun joie de vivre (joy of living). Your swamp and bayou tour will depart from a convenient location in the heart of the French Quarter with return transport via air conditioned coach. While en route to the wetlands embrace the quintessential Louisiana landscape on the bayou.

Float along the waterways and landscapes of southern Louisiana on a custom-built boat. Discover how the Cajuns turned soup into gumbo, the washboard into a musical instrument, and the swamps into a paradise.

Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria, and many species of snakes. Learn why the wetlands are disappearing due to coastal erosion and how many are attempting to reverse that damage. Be sure to bring your camera to capture the bons temps (good times) on the bayou.

These tours have been featured on Showtime, Fox Sports, and Entertainment Tonight.
