Swamps can hold hidden dangers such as alligators, wild boars, and even snakes. This guided tour guarantees you safe travel through one of Louisiana’s last preserved wetlands, and takes you to a Cajun village accessible only by boat. Plus, you'll learn about the history and culture of Honey Island Swamp from your guide as you cruise through the bayou.
What to Expect

Meet for this swamp tour at Honey Island Swamp in Slidell, which is about an hour away from New Orleans. This wildlife area is one of the last protected wetlands in the entire state.

After you check in, board your open-air boat and get comfortable. Your boat sets off on the swamp as your guide tells you the history of the area as well as fun folklore associated with the swamp.

As you go, keep an eye out for wildlife, including alligators, snakes, wild boars, and birds. Make sure to have your camera ready so you can snap pictures, too. Your guide also takes you to a Cajun village in the swamp that’s used the area for medicine, food, and other everyday needs for years.

Your New Orleans swamp and bayou tour ends back at the docking point in Slidell.

Awesome Tour

This was incredible and much more fun than Cajun Pride. The tour guide was a lot of fun, we saw many large gators (6-9ft), fed them right next to the boat and got them to jump out of the water many times. We also fed...More

I would think the walk from the main building, across the parking lot, across the highway, and down to the docks would be too much from him

55345 Highway 90 East, Slidell, LA 70461. It's down a little back road that's nice to drive.

She definitely needs to call them, not Trip Advisor, for tour schedules.
