Experience the timeless charm of Southern Louisiana's swamps from the comfort of a custom built, all weather swamp boat.
Be immersed in a natural setting of aged cypress trees and Spanish moss as you search for the characteristic wildlife of the swamp and a renowned naturalist treats you to a bayou nature wildlife show. Get up close and personal with alligators, snapping turtles, snakes, raccoons, and nutria as you hear about the efforts being made to preserve and restore Louisiana's wetlands. View the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria and ducks.
Feast your eyes on the majestic and haunting beauty of the swamp, while local guides will reveal the swamps' mysteries and tell stories about the Cajun "joie de vivre." You will hear how the Cajuns turned soup into gumbo, the washboard into a musical instrument, and the swamps into a paradise. Don't forget to bring your camera to capture the "Bon Temps" - good times down the bayou!
This is the perfect way to see the unique habitat of Southern Louisiana's swamps by boat. Glass windows allow you to feel close to the action while providing a safe viewing barrier for your enjoyment.
