  • Louisiana Tour Company - See the Cajuns of the Bayou living and surviving in harmony with the swamps. Here, the waterways are their highways. From the relaxing comfort of our Covered Swamp Tour Boats, we will drift slowly past a 2000 year old Indian Burial Mound, a Cajun cemetery, and a Fishing village! You may see the wildlife that made the Barataria Swamps the Crown Jewel of the Louisiana Purchase.

If you choose the airboat option - you will experience the best of both: a swamp tour and an airboat ride. You will travel at high speeds on the airboat then slow down and stop for pictures. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. Our airboats have stadium style seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. Every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife. Gators will get close……real close!!!

Possibly the coolest thing I've done! - The city bus tour was both interesting and informative and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The swamp tour in a small airboat is possibly the coolest thing I've done. Our guide, Bobby, didn't hesitate to go the extra mile to show us hidden corners of the Bayou and I was able to hold a baby alligator. I ended up doing the two tours separately which was a good thing as I got more out of both. Absolutely brilliant.

Wonderful experience. Loved getting up close to the alligators! - Wonderful experience! The guide was very knowledgable and loved getting up close to the alligators. The airboat ride was thrilling slicing through the water at a fast rate of speed but not so fast that it was dangerous.
