When people think of swamp tours they also think of alligators. In the winter, the temperature is usually too cool for the gators to surface; when the water temperature is below 76 degrees alligators snuggle deep into the mud and go to sleep. However, with the gators asleep, there are still tons of beautiful sights to see in the swamp. Winter is an excellent time of year for bird watching. During the cooler months, many birds migrate South to Louisiana to escape harsher winters in the North. With many swamp trees shedding leaves, it becomes easier than ever to spot the birds! If you want a chance to see some birds for yourself, give us a call to jump on one of our swamp tours: 1-888-223-2093 or visit our reservations page!
