Leave the bustling streets of New Orleans behind for a couple of hours on a family-friendly swamp tour. After transfer from your city hotel, climb aboard the covered swamp boat. During the ride, keep your eyes peeled for snakes, birds, turtles, and, of course, gators. The lazy pace of the ride allows you to see landmarks including a Native American Burial Mound, Cajun cemetery, and fishing village.

Captain Bebop was an excellent guide to this part of LA. We stayed in the city but felt the need to see the wildlife in the rural areas, and this tour was perfect. The airboat is loud and fast (ear protection provided), so avoid this tour if that's not your bag...but with temps

We opted for hotel pick up, which saved us the hassle of finding our own way there. The bus transportation was spacious, cool & comfortable. We arrived and got onto our airboat with Captain Dewey. Brilliant experience, with a great guide! Would definitely recommend.

A great day out. We were promptly picked up from our hotel on a small bus but we were then told to get on an even bigger one to make our journey out to the swamp. That part i found annoying as the bus was full so our party of 5 became separated. We arrived in Barataria,
