Swamp & Bayou Tour

by Gray Line New Orleans Duration 4h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is C$68

Embrace the quintessential Louisiana landscape on the bayou. Head out on a custom-built all-weather boat to uncover the mysteries of the swamps, bayous, and the Cajun joie de vivre (joy of living).

Float along the waterways and past the landscapes of southern Louisiana. Discover how the Cajuns turned soup into gumbo, the washboard into a musical instrument and the swamps into a paradise.

Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria and many species of snakes. Learn why the wetlands are disappearing due to coastal erosion and how some are attempting to reverse that damage. Make sure you bring your camera to capture the bons temps (good times) on the bayou.

These tours have been featured on Showtime, Fox Sports and Entertainment Tonight.

Through no fault of theirs we had a major thunderstorm. Wish we had more in depth I to swamp. But overall was good. Kids loved it.

We loved this excursion! Our tour guide was entertaining, knowledgeable and attentive to guest's questions. The bayou was beautiful and his explanations of what we were seeing were perfect. Everyone enjoyed seeing the alligators in their natural habitat and we also got a big kick out of holding the baby rescued alligator !!! Recommend this tour for everyone..... Don't miss it!
