Why a New Orleans Swamp Tour is a MUST!
Visitors to New Orleans generally know about the French Quarter and of course the infamous Mardi Gras, but what of the beauty that surrounds the city? Of course, we are talking about the abundant wetlands and cypress swamps! Louisiana comprises 40% of the nation’s wetlands. These habitats which are now federally protected, play crucial roles in both the environment and economy of the country. Fed mainly by the Mississippi River, the swamps adjacent to New Orleans are rich in both wildlife and history!
Take a break from the party, or bring it with you!
Whether you’re looking for a reprieve from the local New Orleans festivities, or a Bachelor or Bachelorette party looking to continue the party, a New Orleans style swamp tour is for you! Swamp tours are a great way to escape the city scape and emerge yourself in one of the few “frontiers” left in the world. View alligators, turtles, wild boar, whitetail deer, waterfowl, and much more from the comfort of a tourboat, or up close and personal on an airboat! Although there is no shortage of top things to do in New Orleans, one thing is for sure, a New Orleans swamp tour will be the highlight of your trip!
