Highlights / General details
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.
Swamp creatures, seeing our boats daily, recognize them as part of their normal environment. Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain's call, they peek 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.
Narrated swamp tour; OPTIONAL Hotel Pickup in New Orleans, Kenner, and Metairie Areas.
