From the relaxed comfort of our covered New Orleans swamp tour boats, we will drift slowly past a 2000 year old Indian Burial Mound, a Cajun cemetery and fishing village! You may see the wildlife that made the Barataria Swamps the Crown Jewel of the Louisiana Purchase. Here, birds, snakes, turtles, fur animals, and gators are the king of the swamp and easily spotted in spring, summer, and fall.
In The Swamp
Alligators do hibernate during the cold winter months, but lay on the bayou banks on warmer days. So even in winter, our native captains can sometimes find a sunning gator on our tour. The slow drift of our tour boats through moss draped trees and small waterways, will provide ample opportunity for viewing and photography.
The New Orleans swamp tour boats are fully narrated and our captains are natives of the Barataria Swamps with a background of gator hunting, fishing and trapping. They will entertain you and amaze you with the ecology of the swampland. They have lived the life!
