Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours
Twenty-five minutes south of New Orleans on the closest swamp tour to downtown, the native Lafitte Captains of Jean Lafitte Swamp Tours guide memorable expeditions deep into the swamps and bayous of Louisiana Cajun Country. They maneuver swamp boats through brackish water and groves of mossy cypress trees, pointing out alligators, snakes, birds and other wildlife along the way. They would know—they're not only New Orleans locals, they're experienced enough to count as locals in the National Wildlife Preserve where the tours take place.
It was one of my most enjoyable things to do while in the New Orleans area. We had a great guide and learned a lot. I even held a baby alligator. Got some wonderful pictures, even though it was January when we went.
