For many years people have traveled extensively to locate a unique and exciting adventure exploring Louisiana's back country with its meandering bayous and swamps that you can only experience here - the historical Manchac Swamp. We invite you to join us for an educational journey back to the early days of Louisiana bayou and swamp explorations. Swamp creatures, seeing our boats daily, recognize them as part of their normal environment. Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain's call, they peak out from underbrush and between moss-draped trees and shrubs, 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 Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp, particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator, as well as the unique history of the Cajun town of Frenier within the Manchac Swamp.

Activity Highlights
→ 1.5 hour narrated boat tour.
→ Enjoy a thrilling ride through swamps and bayous.
→ Fun adventure for families and children of all ages!
→ Learn the Cajun history and way of life.
→ Explore the habitat of wild reptiles and creatures in Louisiana.

    Awesome for out of Towners

    So great to learn some history of the local area with the animals, reptiles and humans. Our captain (cap'n Danny)was fun and informative. Loved holding the baby alligator, Bruce!

    Perfect Bayou Tour!

    My friends and I were looking for something simple but with quality. This trip was the perfect amount of time and we felt we really got our money's worth! We saw tons of alligators and turtles and we even got to hold a 2yr old alligator. The ride was also very relaxing and peaceful with a very knowledgeable driver. Would recommend if you are looking for something with quality but don't want to break the bank.

    Capt Tom is the best

    I went on this swamp tour not expecting this level of enjoyment and excitement but Capt Tom was amazing, fun, knowledgeable and friendly. Authentic to the core n his Haitian creole is hot. I will recommend this to everyone that is in New Orleans.

    Good tour, timing bad

    Good value, good guide. Got to hold an alligator. The pick up was a little early- we had to chill for 40 min before our tour actually started and they weren't prompt in taking us back- had to wait again. Overall good tour though!
