Immerse yourself in Louisiana's backcountry with its meandering bayous and wetlands that you can only experience in the historical Manchac Swamp. Venture where creatures of the Swamp see our boats daily and recognize them as part of their normal environment. These wild beasts are unafraid and responsive to the boat captain's call, so they peak out from the underbrush frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, you can actually come within a few feet of jumping alligators. As your boat drifts through the waterways you will learn about the Louisiana wildlife in the swamp, particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator.

    Gators love marshmellows!

    It's easy to find Cajun Pride because there is a ton of awesome signage leading you to their location. Once parked, you go inside and check in at the gift shop. The waiting area outside is covered. There's also restrooms and many tables to wait at before your tour. We got there early and Ambrye and Leslie checked us in quickly. They did a great job and explaining some of the unique items in the gift shop (and even selling us a beer!). We were able to check out some of the local wildlife before we even left the dock! They have live snapping turtles, crawfish and baby gators on site! Bugspray is def suggested before you get on the boat. Once on board their covered pontoon boat we spent over an hour being educated by Capt Allen about some of the area's history and famous inhabitants. The... read more

    Great swamp tour!

    The Cajun Pride swamp tour was a great experience- both educational and enjoyable. Getting to and from the tour was very easy- a bus picks you up and then returns you after the tour. Highly recommended.

    Swamp Tour

    This tour was AMAZING! I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting New Orleans. Captain Bishop was the perfect tour guide, and made it fun and entertaining. I got to hold a baby gator as well, which made the tour even more exciting.

    Pleasant Experience

    We enjoyed and took in all the information the tour guide provided. We had hoped for a more interaction with the gators and guide, but in his defensive... he said it himself, he leaves that up to the younger guys. So if you want action go with a younger tour guide. Don't get me wrong the guide we had was good, nice, and brought along Ally..his 3 year old pet gator. Overall the experience was great!

    Swamp Tour

    We were very happy with the information the driver of the bus that picked us up provided to us, not only the historical facts, but the current information about the area. The actual swamp tour was awesome and I would have enjoyed being out there even longer. Captain Tom was really a character, he was knowledgeable, humorous, and very friendly. I would recommend him to anyone.
