We are anything but your typical swamp tour! Our lead tour guides include a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has covered wetlands issues for 30 years, a former television producer who wrote for the only series covering erosion, and a former forest ranger and experienced environmental educator. Lost Lands takes customers out on boats or in kayaks to show the beauty of Louisiana's costal landscape. We also educate our customers on the rapid land loss occurring in the region and explain why south Louisiana is ground zero for global warming. You’ll start with an in-depth audio-visual education on the history of this problem and the proposed cures from award-winning experts. Then come with us for a first-hand experience into the beauty and peril of the largest wetlands ecosystems left in the lower 48 states.After taking our tour, you’ll understand why the wetlands are worth fighting for!

Hi. My 16yr has seen the photo. She has anxiously expressed her concern stating that "Where there are baby gators (and eggs) that there must be Mad mama gators nearby.". She wants to know how much danger is involved? This is not a joke. Our trip is in two weeks.

I haven't seen the photo but we did see some gators, titles, birds. None of the the gators looked mad or agitated. We kayaked quietly and respectfully. It was relaxing, fun and very eye-opening.

For the tour pricing in the last question is the number of people based on total you take out or number in our party which would be 2. Thank you Mike

Hi Mike, Good to hear from you. The pricing is based on the total in the group. We make every effort to combine folks to make groups in the range of 4-9 people.
