Overview
Explore the Louisiana swamp on a 2-hour boat tour that takes you through a variety of ecosystems. Travel with a small group limited to six people, riding in a customized flatboat that can navigate places that other tour boats cannot reach. Look for native wildlife like alligators, turtles, snakes, and a variety of birds, and hear commentary about Louisiana’s swamplands from your guide.
What to Expect
Upon booking you will receive an email with directions and what to bring on your tour. The boat tour is located 45 minutes East of New Orleans in Pearl River, LA. Transportation is not provided to the boat launch. Meet our tour captain at Honey Island Fish House, behind the bar which is at the back of the parking lot, 10 mins before your arranged departure time. Board our flatboat and enjoy a 2 hour tour of the lower Pearl River, including the Honey Island Swamp.

Adults and children are the same price, since spots are limited to 6 on each tour. Children under 16 must wear a life jacket, we have 2 child size and 1 infant lifejacket available, if you are bringing more than that amount of children please bring appropriately sized life jackets.

So glad to hear you enjoyed your time in the swamp with Al. Sorry you didn't see any gators, they can be very finicky based on the weather. Hope you saw some other good stuff out there. Thanks for the kind words, come see us...More
