Bayou and Swamp Tour

Take in the natural beauty of South Louisiana in this New Orleans Swamp Tour that goes through part of Jean Lafitte Historical Park, a site rich with Louisiana wildlife and history. You'll catch glimpses of alligators, snakes, and other Louisiana critters that roam the wetlands while learning about the area's extensive history and culture.

Your New Orleans bayou tour begins after a quick motorcoach trek across the Mississippi River. From there, you'll board a custom flat bottom swamp boat to take you through one of Jean Lafitte Historical Park's most notable sights: the Barataria Preserve. The preserve, which spans more than 20,000 acres, offers a peek at Louisiana's famous wetlands, which are home to swamp rabbits, bats, tree frogs, water snakes, and other cool creatures, not to mention an assortment of aquatic flora and fauna.

The wildlife is just one part of this New Orleans swamp boat tour. As you progress through the preserve, your guide will reveal the history and mysteries surrounding the wetlands. Find out how coastal erosion is affecting the area and what's being done to restore this vibrant environment. Learn how the shrimp, crawfish, and other seafood and shellfish in the wetlands are used to create some of the state's most popular dishes, including crawfish etouffee, a thick stew-like dish composed of crawfish tails, rice, and roux (a butter/flour mixture).

If you want to experience South Louisiana up close, this New Orleans tour is the best way to observe the region's wildlife in its natural habitat from a new perspective. Wear light clothing, grab your camera, and remember not to feed the alligators!
