Forget about the hustle and bustle of the French Quarter and experience another kind of “wildlife”. Enter the land of swamps and marshes, home to hundreds of species of unique and interesting animals and discover the land that gave birth to Cajun culture and cuisine.
Boarding a specially designed pontoon boat, this excursion starts on a bayou… local parlance for small rivulet or stream. Gnarled and twisted cypress stumps and branches lushly draped with Spanish moss line the banks of this waterway. On this meandering cruise, the captain, a native of the region, provides an interesting and entertaining narrative of the history of this massive swampland. Catch a glimpse of any number of animals that inhabit the area: bald eagles, alligators, blue herons, snappin’ turtles and water snakes– the list goes on. You will even get a peek at an authentic Cajun “trapper’s shack” nestled in this beautiful swampland. For a truly fun and fantastic visit outside of the city, visit Louisiana’s other wildlife!
