If your answer to this question is yes, you might want to take our Private small boat swamp tour. While this is more expensive than our daily kayak trip, It is a private tour with a maximum group size of 3 participants. This is truly the most private and customized experience available. You will not have to deal with crowds or any other group participants. Your captain will be 100% attentive to your needs and you will have an unrepeatable, unique experience for your swamp tour trip in New Orleans.

2. Do I want an eco tour? A low impact natural experience in the swamp.

Like most guests, If your answer to this question is yes, then you are a perfect fit for our world famous Kayak Swamp Tour. Our daily Manchac kayak swamp tour is popular for a reason. The tour goes out multiple times a day with pickup to and from New Orleans. As kayaking becomes more popular people are realizing what a great way it is to get out and explore nature. If you don’t want to be crowded on a boat full of 30 other tourists, and you want to be able to get out and see nature in a low impact manner while getting a little exercise at the same time, this is the trip for you! Our kayak swamp tours are still small groups, maxing out around 12 people. We don’t feed wildlife, and our kayaks don’t scare them away either. If you like seeing the outdoors in a natural setting and like to have an adventure, you cannot go wrong with our affordable Manchac Kayak Tour.

3. Do I want to capture great images of the swamp?

If you are a wildlife or landscape photographer, then your answer to this question is most likely a resounding Yes! Our owner Josh has been photographing and exploring the swamp since he was a small child. The Louisiana swamps are nearly impossible to get good photographs of without a kayak or boat. We will put you in the right place at the right time to get the photos you are after. We have kayaks and small “go devil” mud boats that allow us to traverse all corners of the swamp. Unlike most photo workshops, we can run trips daily, and for a lower price point. If you are visiting New Orleans and want to get out to photograph the iconic swamp lands of Louisiana, we have locations just 30 minutes outside of the city where we can get great imagery. Just give us a call or email and setup your photo trip today!
