Swamp Tours

Have you ever wanted to get up close and personal with an alligator? Cruise leisurely along the mysterious, moss-draped bayous? See exotic flora and fauna found nowhere else in the country? You can by checking out one of the many swamp and wildlife tours offered by experienced boat captains in the watery regions surrounding New Orleans.

As your boat floats lazily under the shade of age-old cypresses laden with Spanish moss, the captain lures a 10-foot gator alongside the hull so you can take pictures to show your disbelieving friends and family back home. He points out long-legged waterfowl, poised patiently, waiting to scoop up their dinner with long, pointed beaks. Deadly snakes (observed from a safe distance, of course), lumbering nutria (cousins to the more familiar American muskrats), and the occasional raccoon or swamp deer may also be observed at various times. You never know what you’ll see and each tour is a unique adventure that never happens exactly the same way twice.

The majority of the swamp tours provide transportation to and from the departure points in climate controlled vehicles. Check out the tour listings below.
