We are anything but your typical swamp tour! Our lead tour guides include a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who has covered wetlands issues for 30 years, a former television producer who wrote for the only series covering erosion, and a former forest ranger and experienced environmental educator. Lost Lands takes customers out on boats or in kayaks to show the beauty of Louisiana's costal landscape. We also educate our customers on the rapid land loss occurring in the region and explain why south Louisiana is ground zero for global warming. You’ll start with an in-depth audio-visual education on the history of this problem and the proposed cures from award-winning experts. Then come with us for a first-hand experience into the beauty and peril of the largest wetlands ecosystems left in the lower 48 states.After taking our tour, you’ll understand why the wetlands are worth fighting for!

Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the
students living in the area ensure that Uptown and
Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly

I haven't seen the photo but we did see some gators, titles, birds. None of the the gators looked mad or agitated. We kayaked quietly and respectfully. It was relaxing, fun and very eye-opening.
