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.

Very fun I recommend it when traveling to NOLA, also I recommend getting a ride there on the Cajuan swamp tour bus. It’s so fun the driver told us about Louisiana as he drove. It was awesome. I world do it again and again

Captain Danny was a hoot! We really enjoyed him. The tour started on time, was very informative and, we had a history lesson in the process. We had a good time!

Definitely the best swamp tour you could've asked for. Family friendly. Lots of stories. Alligators.

Funny guide, very entertaining and knowledgeable about swamp. Would definitely go again!

The swamp tour is a must when visiting New Orleans. Great experience!
