    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Louisiana Tour Company, Marrero, LA 70072

    Swamp and Wetlands Adventure: The New Orleans swamp tour boats are fully narrated and our captains are natives of the Barataria Swamps with a background of gator hunting, fishing and trapping. They will entertain you and amaze you with the ecology of the swampland. They have lived the life! Here, birds, snakes, turtles, fur animals, and gators are the kings of the swamp and easily spotted in spring, summer, and fall. Gators do hibernate during the cold winter months, but lay on the bayou banks on warmer days. So even in Winter, our native Captains can sometimes find a sunning Gator on our tour. The slow drift of our tour boats through moss draped trees and small waterways, will provide ample opportunity for viewing and photography. Your comfort is guaranteed on our tour boats. They have a roof, restroom, cushioned seats, and windows that can be raised or lowered during cold or rainy weather, along with plenty of standing and walking room. These tours are entertaining, educational and exciting.

    Duration: 4 hours

    What a fantastic day. Picked up on time from our hotel. Driven out to oak Alley Plantation. What an eye-opener into life 180 years ago. Extreme wealth, supported by slavery. Then off to see the alligators during the swamp boat tour. Just fantastic. Highly recommend.

    Our swamp tour, led by Reggie, was awesome. His quiet boat slipped unobtrusively into narrow bayous where we saw almost 20 alligators total, a raccoon, lots of turtles, and beautiful water birds. The pace was relaxing, and the wildlife amazing. Reggie, who had grown up...More

    Yes, there’s both a cafe and a restaurant at the plantation. And food was quite reasonable.
