Jean Lafitte Swamp Boat Tour

Journey with us by boat, Cajun-style, for a 1 hour 30 minute tour through the heart of Southern Louisiana's swamp lands in the protected Jean Lafitte National Park and Preserve's Barataria Preserve. Experience real-life adventure for the whole family from the comfort of our swamp boats. Tour back into our privately owned meandering bayous and take a look into the past. View moss draped cypress trees, fascinating plant life and the creatures who make their homes here. 

Your Cajun guide is a native of the area who will share with you the legends and lore of Louisiana's still untamed wilderness.

Bring your camera and capture wildlife at any time! Alligators, snakes, egrets, white-tailed deer, mink and nutria all make their home here in the Louisiana swamp lands.
