From the relaxed comfort of a covered swamp tour boat, drift past a 2000 year old Indian Burial Mound, a Cajun cemetery and Fishing village. See the wildlife that made the Barataria Swamps the Crown Jewel of the Louisiana Purchase. Birds, snakes, turtles, Nutria and Gators--Kings of the Swamp--are easily spotted in Spring, Summer, and Fall.
Gators hibernte during the cold winter months. On warmer days they'll come out to lie on the bayou banks and soak up the sun. So even in Winter, the native captains will sometimes find a sunning Gator on tour. The slow drift of the tour boats through moss draped trees and small waterways will provide ample opportunity for wildlife viewing and photography.
The swamp tours are fully narrated and the captains are natives of the Barataria Swamps with a background of gator hunting, fishing and trapping. They will entertain and amaze you with the ecology of the swampland. They have lived the life!
Your comfort is guaranteed and boats are specially designed for your comfort. They have a roof, restroom, cushioned seats, and windows that can be raised or lowered during cold or rainy weather, along with plenty of standing and walking room.
If it rains, you will not get wet. There are lexan windows that can be lowered to stop the wind and rain. If it is cold, bring a jacket or coat. Life vests are available but not necessary because the boat has side railing. The swamp tour boat is wheelchair accessible.

Our family group of 8, ages 6 to 75, had a great Bayou Barataria Swamp Tour. The guide was informative, entertaining, knowledgeable, and clearly enjoyed showing us around. Couldn't have been better! Pick up and delivery made it very convenient, too. (Posted on 2/12/2017)

It was the best! I am a retired educator on a retirement trip heading west. It is by far the best thing I have done in years! It was awesome with the alligators and many species of birds. The air boat is the best way to see the bayou (Posted on 7/27/2015)

My husband and I had a great time in the Louisiana swamps. Saw a few alligators. Our tour guide, Barry was very informative and fun. Would recommend to others. (Posted on 4/10/2014)
