Choose from four daily departure times, and make your way to the Steamboat Natchez dock on the French Quarter banks of the Mississippi. Climb aboard a coach for the ride out of the city to the wild, serene landscape of the bayou.
Transfer to a new, custom-built swamp boat for a winding ride through the protected wetlands Louisiana is famous for. As you make your way through peaceful channels and estuaries, learn about the area’s history from your entertaining local captain. Hear how the swamps were once inhabited by French pirate and war hero Jean Lafitte, and gain insight into authentic Cajun culture, which revolves around fishing for fresh seafood and living off the land.
Keep your camera handy for shots of native wildlife like egrets, snakes, nutria, and famous Louisiana gators, plus a view of the tree featured in the Disney film The Princess and the Frog. After your journey into the swamps, return to civilization with drop-off back at the French Quarter dock.
