Overview
Spot gators, egrets, turtles, and other Louisiana wildlife on a boat tour of the Honey Island Swamp. Cruise through a mossy cypress forest while a professional wetland ecologist shares insight into this protected nature reserve and local Cajun fishing life. You don't need to rent to rent a car to explore the bayou, as pickup from your New Orleans hotel is included. Note: this tour only offers pick up and drop off from the French Quarter.
What to Expect
After convenient pickup at your downtown or French Quarter hotel, leave the bustle of New Orleans behind and travel to the launch point on the West Pearl River, near the shores of Lake Ponchartrain. Board a covered swamp boat that provides protection from the hot Louisiana sun or from rain on stormy days, and make your way into the protected waters of the Honey Island Swamp.

Glide beneath hanging moss and Cypress trees as a wetlands ecologist guide shares info about this unique ecosystem plus local legends of pirates, Bigfoot, and prehistoric creatures. Look out for swamp critters like otters, egrets, nutria, turtles, and alligators during the 2-hour cruise. You’ll also learn about Louisiana's important fishing industry and pass through a typical Cajun fishing village.

Don't go in April

We saw the videos of the Honey Island Swamp Tour, mainly the ones where the gators swim right up to the boat. We weren't disappointed for the most part, but definitely chose the wrong attraction for the season. I'll start with the pickup/dropoff/transportation. The van...More

Yes... we were staying at an AirBNB and they came for us. I think you just need to tell them where you are staying and they will either stop for you or tell you the closest place they will stop. Best to do it on the phone.

We booked the day before and believe we were able to because a lot of people cancelled due to forecast rain. It did sprinkle a little, but our experience was still amazing!

The boat I was on in April held about 14 folks. It was very comfortable seating and everyone had a great view. I liked the boat as it had a canopy top that would protect you from rain and direct sun.
