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.

Large alligators thrashing!

We did a swamp tour 21 years ago and often spoke of it when remembering our trip to NOLA. This one was 10 times better! There were loads of alligators on the tour and our Captain Tom is a true Cajun alligator expert. He told all about the tagging and hunting methods. He demonstrated how to carefully feed them with raw meat and they thrashed next to the boat for a snack. It was amazing! Our kids loved it! Of all if the tours we did in NOLA this was by far the best.
