Gray Line Swamp & Bayou Tour (Includes Transportation)

After a short motorcoach ride across the Mississippi River, take a fascinating boat trip into the Louisiana Swamps & Bayous.

Experience the timeless beauty of South Louisiana in a custom built swamp boat through part of the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park - Barataria Preserve. Native guides will reveal the mysteries of the swamps and bayous and the Cajun “joie de vivre.” Discover how the seafood from our bountiful waters provides a wide assortment of delectable local dishes!

Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria, and many species of snakes. Some wildlife are more numerous during the warmer months of the year. Learn why our wetlands are disappearing due to coastal erosion and man’s efforts to correct the damage it has done and restore this vital habitat.

These tours have been featured on Showtime, Fox Sports, and Entertainment Tonight. Bring your camera to capture the “bon temps” (good times) on the bayou!

Note: Snacks, sandwiches & refreshments available for purchase.
