Overview
With alligators, hidden villages, and snakes, Louisiana’s swamps can be scary to explore on your own. On this tour, your guide will keep you safe—and fill you in on Cajun history—while you explore the swampy territories. Visit areas of Honey Island Swamp you can only reach by boat, and learn about the area’s wildlife from your guide. Plus, round-trip transportation from New Orleans makes for a no-hassle adventure.
What to Expect
Your tour starts with hotel pickup from New Orleans. Sit back and relax on the drive over to Honey Island Swamp in Slidell. Once you arrive, your adventure begins at one of Louisiana’s last protected wetland areas.

Board a flat-bottom boat that your guide can easily maneuver through the foliage and narrow passageways. Explore the wildlife in the area, and keep an eye out for animals, such as alligators, wild boars, and snakes. You'll visit hard-to-reach spots of the swamp.

Your guide will tell you about the history of the swamp and its importance to the people who still live there in a small Cajun village. 

Afterward, enjoy a relaxing transfer back to your New Orleans hotel.

Cool & fun

Our party’s age range was 11-85 yrs old. We all had a pretty rad time. It’s off season so we only saw 1 gator but our guide still did his best at keeping us entertained.

You get what you pay for!!

We enjoyed the boat ride in the swamp and saw a fair amount of ‘wildlife’ only to find that the animals are feed so come over to the boats on demand. It’s entertaining for the kids and for the price it was good. However, my...More

Honey Isand swamp is the area we went to, and it is outside of the city. Dont know if it is part of the pass you are talking about, but they picked us up at our hotel which was awesome.

They pick up at most hotels - if not directly at your airbnb, they might be able to pick up/drop off at a closeby hotel destination.
