What you can expect

This nighttime swamp tour will show you a whole new side of New Orleans. Escape the Southern Louisiana heat as you take off on a 22-passenger boat and take in the sunset before heading out into the darkness of the swamps. Your captain will lead you through the swamp with a spotlight, pointing out all the creatures lurking in the shadows.

Explore the wilds of a real swamp at night as you head into the bayou with an experienced guide on a flat-bottom boat. In Honey Island Swamp, scan the reeds for snapping gators, listen for the grunts of wild boars, and hear about the Bigfoot-like creature locals call the Honey Island Swamp Monster.

Head out into Honey Island Swamp, banking around the trunks of cypress trees and under branches laced with Spanish moss. Listen as your guide talks about the area's ecology, and make stops to look for the glow of gator eyes.

Boar grunts, bird calls, and bug chirps fill the night air as you make your way through a maze of waterways. While you ride, find out how the legend of the Honey Island Swamp Monster got its start, and make your own mind up about whether it really exists before you turn around and head back to the dock.
