Contrary to popular belief, boats are actually much safer than cars, which inexplicably sink every time you drive them on water. Take a proper water road ride with today’s Groupon: for $11, you get a swamp boat tour from Cajun Pride Swamp Tours in LaPlace (up to a $22 value).

Cajun Pride's tour guides escort customers through the marshy waterways of the Manchac Swamp while pointing out local wildlife and sharing history about the nearby Cajun town of Frenier. During the approximately two-hour tour, vessels skim along liquid green thoroughfare as alligators peak their heads out at the familiar sound of the boat captain's voice. Come within high-fiving distance of a variety of wildlife, including waterfowl, snuffleupaguses, and the occasional deer. Upon completion of the tour, all guests receive a complimentary rubber alligator.

Tour attendees are encouraged to arrive 15 minutes before scheduled departure to guarantee a spot.

Cajun Pride Tours

Devoted to preserving Cajun culture by sharing it with the public, Cajun Pride Tours’ knowledgeable and passionate guides lead groups on tours that explore area swamps, plantations along the Great Mississippi River Road, and the historic districts of New Orleans. They also stroll along city streets in the French Quarter in New Orleans, the Garden District, and areas that display the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina. On boat trips, groups can spot friendly gators while floating through the Manchac Swamp—a protected area that prohibits any hunting, fishing, or tickling of the native wildlife. A short drive past the swamps drops tourists off near the area’s plantations that are notable for their history, architecture, landscaping, and insight into Creole culture.
