Even though water covers most of the earth’s surface, humans spend most of their lives on land and a small portion in the air while they’re sleeping. Float on with this voucher.
- $22 for a swamp tour via boat for two (up to a $48 value)
The swamp tour explores the privately owned Manchac Swamp, a protected wildlife area that outlaws fishing and hunting. As the boat drifts through the bayou amid trees draped with spanish moss, travelers are likely to see alligators and other swamp creatures passing peacefully by or sometimes even approaching the boat. Along the way, guides also spill facts about the wetlands and the nearby Cajun town of Frenier. Tour-goers also receive a complimentary gift.
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.
