Swamp Tours

Explore the way swamps influence our way of life

A harmonious balance has been created between the swamp eco-system, wildlife, and locals who call the River Parishes home.

Swamp Tours

Cajuns and Native Americans have respected and protected these lands for centuries, and they have continued to remain a cornerstone of our culture. Out here you will see alligators sunbathing and egrets perched on logs as you kayak or canoe Manchac Swamp.

Guided swamp tours are led by ambassadors of our land and the lakes and marshes provide you with a fully immersive and eco-educational experience.
