"Honey Island Swamp Tour" Swamp Tours Tip by HasTowelWillTravel

Swamp Tours, New Orleans: 42 reviews and 81 photos

There are a lot of swamp tours in the Louisiana bayou/delta area. It is a popular side excursion, a chance to see the older parts of the area, as well as a taste of the ecosystem. It is a wondrous place. You see old fishing and hunting shacks, plus the abundant, verdant display which is the bayou. It is a sheer mass of vegetation, filled with wildlife and interesting secrets. Get luck you might spy feral pigs, deer, snakes, perhaps even an alligator.

Honey Island is one such tour group that operates about 30 minutes outside of the city proper. Easy to get to, and they also offer a shuttle service for those without a car in the city. The tour guides are informative about the countryside and all its inhabitants. It was a great afternoon out, reasonably priced ($25 for adult), and highly recommended.

Address: 41490 Crawford Landing, Slidell, LA 70461
