A must do! There are many options to visit a bayou when you are in New Orleans, but you realize quickly that many are harmful to the animals and the bayou because of the airboats. We found that this eco-friendly tour was a good option...More

It's easy to see how much the guides enjoy what they do and the pride they take in it. It's very relaxing and great to see the bayou. I would recommend this to anyone in a heartbeat.

Hands-down, kayaking or canoeing is the best way to experience the Bayou. It's the least disruptive way to travel through the waters so you really see all the animals in their natural habitat. The day I went I saw alligators, turtles, snakes, a bunch of...More
