Choose between a morning or afternoon swamp adventure in Slidell, Louisiana, and visit Honey Island Swamp, a wildlife preserve that is one of the last protected wetlands in Louisiana. Board the custom‐made, open‐air boat and set off on an educational ride. Admire the view as the boat quietly winds through narrow swamp passages and brings you closer to native wildlife. Listen to your guide’s commentary along the way, which makes this an unforgettable wildlife‐spotting expedition through the myth‐laden Louisiana terrain. Glide along the water, viewing the lush greenery and abundance of wild animals, including alligators, owls, raccoons, snakes, black bears, bald eagles, and wild boar. Enjoy a tour perfect for animal enthusiasts and a chance to see these animals up close and in their natural habitat.

Learn about the culture and ingenuity of the Cajun people who have inhabited this area and use it as a source of food and medicine.
