Overview
With alligators, hidden villages, and snakes, Louisiana’s swamps can be scary to explore on your own. On this tour, your guide will keep you safe—and fill you in on Cajun history—while you explore the swampy territories. Visit areas of Honey Island Swamp you can only reach by boat, and learn about the area’s wildlife from your guide. Plus, round-trip transportation from New Orleans makes for a no-hassle adventure.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with hotel pickup from New Orleans. Sit back and relax on the drive over to Honey Island Swamp in Slidell. Once you arrive, your adventure begins at one of Louisiana’s last protected wetland areas.

Board a flat-bottom boat that your guide can easily maneuver through the foliage and narrow passageways. Explore the wildlife in the area, and keep an eye out for animals, such as alligators, wild boars, and snakes. You'll visit hard-to-reach spots of the swamp.

Your guide will tell you about the history of the swamp and its importance to the people who still live there in a small Cajun village. 

Afterward, enjoy a relaxing transfer back to your New Orleans hotel.

For us strangers in a strange land this was a very interesting trip. Saw all the animals but of course they are all conditioned by feeding to be waiting for the boats to arrive. Don't let that stop you if you have never done this...More

They pick up at most hotels - if not directly at your airbnb, they might be able to pick up/drop off at a closeby hotel destination.

It says on their website that covered boats are not guaranteed; however, most of the boats that I saw there were covered. Check the weather online before going there. Bugs weren’t a problem at all because of the speed we... More
