Discover the swamps of southern New Orleans when you take this fantastic boat trip around the beautiful Barataria Preserve. You will encounter the amazing landscapes of the bayou and a variety of wonderful wildlife that inhabit these swamplands.
Barataria Preserve Boat Trip
At the time of your choosing, we'll meet up at the pier on Barataria Boulevard, to the south of New Orleans. Then its time to begin our adventure in the wonderful wetlands of Louisiana.
We will board a boat and set sail on a gentle trip through the idyllic Barataria Reserve, a vast swamp that forms part of the magnificent Jean Lafitte National Park.
Accompanied by the guide, we will discover the abundant flora and fauna of the area. More than 200 species of birds, snakes, turtles, and frogs are just some of the colourful inhabitants of these marshes. If you are lucky, we will also encounter the kings of the swamp: the alligators.
During the trip, we will also see a traditional fishing village and discover the American Indian past at some ancient settlements that date back more than 2000 years. This tour is the perfect blend of history and nature!
After exploring these magical swamps for an hour and forty minutes, our tour finally comes to an end.
Hotel pick up
If you prefer, you can also book a pick-up service from your hotel in New Orleans. We will collect you one and a half hours before the start of the boat ride and, once the activity is over, we will take you back to your accommodation.
