What would a visit to New Orleans be if you didn't see the other side: the swamps and bayous? Incomplete. One of the rarest and most fragile eco-systems in the country, if not the world, the swamps of the Mississippi River Delta are home to many different animals: nutria, black bear, hawks, eagles and, of course, the American Alligator.
Choose from comfortable, covered boats with colorful captains getting you up close to all there is to see; or take an adventure on a high-speed airboat tour deep into the Swamps and Bayous.
Either way, you'll get up close and personal with what is one of the most special habitats in the country which, unfortunately, is fast disappearing. We hope that you'll gain a understanding of how important it is to help save it for generations to come.
