Located only twenty-five minutes from New Orleans, Jean Lafitte Swamp and Airboat Tours explore Louisiana's back country along its meandering bayous abundant with wildlife and exotic plant life.

Trained navigators escort you into the murky waters of Louisiana swamps where you will come face to face with the beauty and beasts of nature. Bring your camera to capture the thrills and chills of this unforgettable swampland journey!

Journey by boat, Cajun-style, for a 1 hour 45 minute tour through the heart of Southern Louisiana's swamplands. Experience real-life adventure for the whole family from the comfort of special swamp boats. Tour back into privately owned meandering bayous and take a look into the past. View moss draped cypress trees, fascinating plant life and the creatures who make their homes here, such as alligators, snakes, egrets, white-tailed deer, mink and nutria.

Coast Guard Certified swamp boats can accommodate up to 250 passengers, when all of the tour boats are in use. Each boat has restroom facilities and snacks and beverages are available. Groups, families and individuals are all welcome and encouraged to come and experience the bayou.

Each season brings new and different sights to see:
Spring is incredible with all the animals doing what animals do while the trees and many flowers are in bloom and the nesting period for the waterfowl begin.
Summertime is warm and humid which brings out the big Alligators and big birds like the Great Blue Herrin and the White Egret.
Fall is spectacular with very pleasant weather, an abundance of animals and beautiful foliage.
Winters are mild and a great time of year, as well. Winter brings out the fur-bearing (fuzzy) animals, like Nutria, deer, mink, otters and the migratory birds.
