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.

    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.

    Great Experience

    Due to a booking misunderstanding, Tripshock graciously refunded my original purchase (very timely) and rebooked our family for the New Orleans Swamp Tour. This turned out to be one of the more informative and entertaining tours that we took in NoLa! I would reccomend this tour to any family that enjoys the outdoors. It was a fantastic experience!

    Manchac swamp tour

    Amazing tour! Our tour guide was informative, funny and entertaining. I highly recommend the $20 upgrade to the smaller boat. We were able to go further into the swamp and see more wildlife.
