There are many sights to see in the swamps of Southeast Louisiana besides the gators. The US Wildflower Database currently lists more than 250 different species of wildflowers, more than half of which can be found in the swamps around New Orleans! Swamp tours are a great chance to get to check out these beauties up close and to learn more about the indigenous species from our wonderful local boat captains. The airboat tours are fast and exciting and give you a chance to get up close and personal with the swamp as you are seated close to the water in a narrow boat. The bayou boat, by contrast, gives you a peaceful, meandering tour of the swamp, allowing you to take your time as you drift past the scenery.
