Introduction

After a short motorcoach ride across the Mississippi River, take a fascinating boat trip into the Louisiana Swamps & Bayous. Experience the timeless beauty of South Louisiana in a custom built, all weather swamp boat. Native guides will reveal the mysteries of the swamps and bayous and the Cajun “joie de vivre”. Hear how the Cajuns turned soup into gumbo, the washboard into a musical instrument, and the swamps of Louisiana into a paradise. Observe the nesting grounds of alligators, egrets, raccoons, nutria, and many species of snakes. Some wildlife are more numerous during the warmer months of the year. You will be treated to a Bayou Nature Wildlife Show by a local naturalist. Snakes, alligator snapping turtles, raccoons and nutria will be among the animal guests. Learn about the efforts made to preserve and restore Louisiana’s vanishing wetlands. Visit www. americaswetland.com. These tours have been featured on The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel, CBS, NBC & ABC. Lunch is available for purchase on this tour. Bring your camera to capture the “bon temps” (good times) on the bayou! Snacks and refreshments are available on the boat. Tour includes narrated boat cruise and narrated transportation.
