Overview
Spot gators, egrets, turtles, and other Louisiana wildlife on a boat tour of the Honey Island Swamp. Cruise through a mossy cypress forest while a wetland ecologist shares insight into this protected nature reserve and local Cajun fishing life. No need to rent a car to explore the bayou, as pickup and drop-off from your New Orleans downtown or French Quarter hotel is included.
What to Expect
After convenient pickup at your downtown or French Quarter hotel, leave the bustle of New Orleans behind and travel to the launch point on the West Pearl River, near the shores of Lake Pontchartrain. Board a covered swamp boat that provides protection from the hot Louisiana sun or from rain on stormy days, and make your way into the protected waters of the Honey Island Swamp.

Glide beneath hanging moss and cypress trees, as a wetlands ecologist guide shares info about this unique ecosystem, plus local legends of pirates, Bigfoot, and prehistoric creatures. Look out for swamp critters, such as otters, egrets, nutria, turtles, and alligators, during the cruise. You’ll also learn about Louisiana's important fishing industry and pass through a typical Cajun fishing village.

Yes... we were staying at an AirBNB and they came for us. I think you just need to tell them where you are staying and they will either stop for you or tell you the closest place they will stop. Best to do it on the phone.

We booked the day before and believe we were able to because a lot of people cancelled due to forecast rain. It did sprinkle a little, but our experience was still amazing!
