What you can expect

Just outside New Orleans, you can explore Cajun culture in an exotic bayou filled with thriving flora and wildlife. From the comfort of a 22-passenger boat, you can get up close and personal with alligators, wild boars, and native birds while your expert guide provides informative narration about Honey Island Swamp.

Moss-covered cypress trees towering from the riverbed welcome you on your journey into one of the wildest swamps in America. Surrounded by pristine beauty, be prepared to run into alligators, raccoons, wild boars, turtles, snakes and many birds – all native to the area.

Due to the ever-growing alligator population, you may encounter some of these prehistoric creatures as your guide manoeuvres through the windy river. Along the way, glide past an authentic Cajun village that is only accessible by boat.

Cajun Encounters offers an unforgettable journey into the Honey Island Swamp, providing you with great memories from your visit to Louisiana that will last a lifetime. Our shuttle service from most area hotels offers convenience and provides a relaxing way to travel as you enjoy learning more about our unique culture and history.

This rare opportunity to encounter magnificent wildlife in their natural surroundings is an adventure you won't soon forget. Suitable for all ages!
