Swamp Tours

Journey with us by boat, Cajun-style, for a 1 hour 45 minute tour through the heart of Southern Louisiana's swamplands in the protected Jean Lafitte National Park and Preserve's Barataria Preserve. Experience real-life adventure for the whole family from the comfort of our swamp boats. Tour back into our privately owned meandering bayous and take a look into the past. View moss draped cypress trees, fascinating plant life and the creatures who make their homes here.

Your Cajun guide is a native of the area who will share with you the legends and lore of Louisiana's still untamed wilderness.

Our Coast Guard Certified swamp boats can accommodate up to 360 passengers when all of our tour boats are in use. Each boat has restroom facilities. School groups are welcome and a picnic area is available for the children to bring a bag lunch.

Bring your camera and capture wildlife at any time! Alligators, snakes, egrets, white-tailed deer, mink and nutria all make their home here in the Louisiana swamplands.
