    Full description
    Explore Louisiana’s country bayou landscapes on a high-speed swamp tour. Leave behind the bustling “Big Easy” for half a day, with roundtrip transportation included. After a hotel pickup, head down to the bayou wetlands, where you will board your high-speed airboat with your captain guide. Enjoy the local flora and fauna from the comfort of your airboat as you zip along the water. Listen as your guide tells you the tidbits about the swampland, the local area’s Cajun culture, and draw your eyes to the diverse wildlife that call these bayous home. Keep a special eye out for various types of snake, raccoon, fish, deer, birds, and perhaps even spot an alligator if you’re lucky.

    This was so much fun! From pick-up in front of our hotel to drop off a few hours later, everything went smoothly. This tour was very organized. Our guide on the airboat was Ronnie. He was smart, funny and kind...making everyone feel welcome. We had a close-up view of several alligators, turtles and birds. Ronnie gave us a lot of informatiom about the animals, trees and plants in the bayou. He is clever and witty--we learned so much while having a lot of laughs. He lives nearby and was able to share some amusing personal anecdotes about growing up near the bayou. We had a full boat with people of all ages, from all over the U.S. and everyone enjoyed themselves.

    Great fun - real authentic swamp!

    Great day out. Picked up really promptly from hotel and driven about 30 mins to swamp. Pretty busy once we got there so advise going on the earliest trip available. Loads of boats and loads of room! Airboat was great fun - not to hair raising so kids will enjoy it as well as the adults!. Saw quite a few alligators and even got to hold a baby one. Good all round trip with a very informative guide. Best price too!

    Our guide was fun, and the gators were all over.

    The bus was a little late getting us, but the driver was nice, and showed us some interesting sights on the way. The airboat was a different experience. It glides, and goes over land. We saw a lot of gators, blue herons, coots, mullets, and cranes. Our guide let us hold two small gators, and even tried to catch one in the water. His stories had us laughing. We loved it out there on the swamp!
