Welcome back to Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours, y'all!

We are so excited to bring back the magic of the bayou and to be back out on the water with y'all again! Our traditional flat-bottom pontoon boats are Coast Guard certified for 60 persons. To accommodate all regulations we are adjusting the public cruise to 50% of total capacity, including our captain. Guests will be issued a seat on the boat, giving proper and safe social distance between themselves and others.

The health and safety of our guests and staff is of the utmost importance to us. To mitigate the impact of the coronavirus, we are taking the following extra steps in addition to adhering to our stringent health standards, as recommended by and in accordance with the Passenger Vessel Association (PVA) and the Jefferson Parish Back to Business Plan:

  • Contactless ticketing and check-in process
  • There will be a strict capacity of persons in the gift shop and restroom buildings.
  • Masks are required inside of the facilities mentioned above
  • Face coverings available for purchase
  • Plexiglass dividers installed between all staff and guests where interactions take place
  • Sanitizing stations will be available to all guests
  • All surfaces will be cleaned between cruises
  • Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours is acting in accordance with all guidelines as issued by the CDC, JEDCO, and the Passenger Vessel Association
  • Drive-up ONLY - No Transportation Provided. See map for directions
  • Reduced pricing for private boat tours - Normally $750, now only $600!
