Swamp and Bayou Tour
After a short motorcoach ride across the Mississippi River, take a fascinating boat trip into the Louisiana Swamps & Bayous. Experience the timeless beauty of Southern Louisiana in a custom built, all weather swamp boat. Native guides will reveal the mysteries of the swamps and bayous and the Cajun "joie de vivre". Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria, and many species of snakes. Some wildlife is more numerous during the warmer months of the year. Learn about the efforts made to preserve and restore Louisiana's vanishing wetlands. These tours have been featured on The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel, CBS, NBC and ABC. Bring your camera to capture the "bon temps" (good times) on the bayou!.
