Immerse yourself in Louisiana's backcountry bayous and wetlands at the historical Manchac Swamp. Venture where creatures of the swamp see boats daily and recognize them as part of the normal environment. These wild beasts are unafraid and responsive to the boat captain's call, so they peek out from the underbrush frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, guests can actually come within a few feet of jumping alligators. As the boat drifts through the waterways guests will learn about the Louisiana wildlife in the swamp such as the American alligator, herons, eagles, wild boars, and more.

  • Narrated boat and ecotour of Manchac Swamp

Had a lot of fun. We saw quite a few alligators and a couple of raccoons, plus several interesting birds. The people were fun to watch too!

Though it was cool and cloudy and we did get to see A crocodile ( other tours that day didn't), we very much enjoyed our tour with Tom as our guide. He was knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate. We got immersed in the bayou experience, seeing wildlife and understanding the history and effects of big storms on the area-- and how he and his fellow workers have carved out waterways. It is no wonder he's been tapped by Nat Geo and others to guide their experiences.

We originally booked a different swamp tour and they called to tell us it was over booked. We were happy when TripShock called to offer to switch is to this tour at a discount. That is good customer service. We were very impressed with this tour. We had Captain Tom, who was an excellent guide. His love for the bayou is genuine and we learned so much on the tour. We saw countless alligators and raccoons and even a few turtles. He had a baby alligator on board that we got to look at up close. We would highly recommend both tripshock and this swamp tour!
