Tour Details

Get ready for a fun-filled swamp experience as you get up close to alligators, bald eagles, and other Louisiana creatures in this unique New Orleans swamp tour. After the 50 minute drive from downtown to the swamp, you will board the boat, and you and a maximum of 21 other passengers will travel through the Honey Island Swamp, the home of the legendary Honey Island Swamp Monster. The monster is said to be more than 7 feet tall, featuring yellow eyes and gray hair. The legend dates back to 1963, when it was sighted by a retired air traffic controller.

As you traverse the swamp with your local swamp expert guide, you'll find yourself mere feet away from the swamp's many critters. Raccoons, birds, and turtles are just a few of the run-ins you'll have en route to an authentic Cajun village that is only accessible by boat, so have your camera handy. Your tour guides, many of whom have field degrees, will help ensure a safe, enjoyable time, and answer any questions you might have about the swamp wildlife and flora. Rest assured, there's plenty of it!

This New Orleans Honey Island Swamp day tour uses small covered and uncovered boats for easier navigation through the swamp, which is one of the least-altered river swamps in the U.S. From the beautiful cypress trees to the captivating azaleas, Honey Island Swamp is a sight like no other. Wear comfortable clothing, have your camera in hand, and prepare to embark on the New Orleans swamp day tour of a lifetime.

Please Note: The actual tour is 3 hours long from the starting point at the swamp. Duration with transfers from New Orleans hotels is a total of 6 hours. Pickups begin approximately 90 minutes PRIOR to scheduled tour departure time. The airboat ride itself is approximately a 1 hour and 45 minute tour.
