New Orleans: Manchac Bayou Swamp Cruise with Optional Pickup

1. New Orleans: Manchac Bayou Swamp Cruise with Optional Pickup

Join this tour in the Manchac Swamp on a real life adventure for the whole family. Your local captains will take you on an exciting journey to explore Louisiana's abundant wildlife in the bayous of Cajun Country. Journey by boat, Cajun-style, for a tour through the heart of Southern Louisiana's swamplands. Your swamp boat will take you into the meandering bayous where you'll see moss-draped cypress trees, fascinating plant life, and the creatures who make their homes here. Listen to informative commentary as you sail into the bayou. Swamp creatures are used to seeing the tour boats, so you'll likely catch a glimpse of various birds, snakes, deer, and fish, and possibly even an alligator. As your boat drifts through the waterways, you will learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp–particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator–as well as the unique history of the local Cajun town of Frenier.

Excellent communication from the staff regarding hotel pickup, and an enjoyable ride to the location, seeing some local attractions on the way. Joe was a great, well informed driver! The Swamp Tour was extremely entertaining. Beautiful location and lots of wildlife. Overall the trip was a great experience and was good value for money! Would definitely do again!

Bishop was a great captain! He kept us all entertained throughout the whole tour. We got to see plenty of alligators, turtles and other wildlife. We got to see alligators up close while Bishop fed them and got to hold a baby gator!

Captain Bishop was a hoot! We saw at least 20 alligators and learned interesting history about the surrounding area. I’ll definitely be bringing more of my out of town guests here in the future.

A great guide giving an inciteful view of life in the swamp. Alligators aplenty

great time. very knowledgeable captain. better then the everglades
