If you tilt your head and squint, the murky waters of the Honey Island Swamp almost look like a red carpet. Ok, that might not be entirely true, but thanks to the guides at the locally owned and operated Cajun Encounters, Hollywood stars and famous musicians have toured one of Louisiana's only remaining preserved wetlands. Their covered and uncovered swamp tour boats have welcomed the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, Usher, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Forest Whitaker.
Kelly Ripa even gave the tour a glowing review and a feature on Live! with Regis & Kelly, but celebrity status and a personal assistant who carries you over puddles are hardly required for getting up-close looks at alligators, wild boars, bald eagles, and other swamp animals.
As an eco-friendly tour company, Cajun Encounters extends its adventures beyond the wetlands. With 17 years of experience, its team members provide round-trip pick up service via mini busses decked out in the ultimate comforts. Guides lead guests on tours of the city, including the historic French Quarter and graves at local cemeteries. Or they might travel back in time, visiting two plantations straight out of the 1800s.
