Alert Transportation and Louisiana Swamp Tours: Swamp Tours for your Enjoyment!
Louisiana Swamp Tours, owned and operated by Alert Transportation, provides swamp tours for your enjoyment. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the gentle boat ride through the Barataria Swamp. During the New Orleans Swamp Tour and Wetlands Adventure, witness how the Cajuns of the bayou live in tranquility on the waterways. On these swamp tours glide past 2000 year old Indian burial mounds, a Cajun cemetery, as well as the fishing village where the Cajuns coexist with nature. The wildlife you will see in their natural habitat are alligators, fur animals that are trapped for their pelts, turtles, birds, and snakes. Because alligators hibernate during the winter, the best times to see them are in the spring, summer, and fall.
These swamp tours are entertaining, informative, and filled with excitement.
Alert Transportation has guaranteed your comfort and safety in their fleet of vehicles. They have brought that mission to Louisiana Swamp Tours. Their boats are designed to be comfortable with padded seats, a restroom, ample space to move around, and operational windows. Your safety too is a major concern. The Captain has been certified and knows these waters because he has grown up in the Barataria Swamp. As the tour guide, you learn about the ecosystem of the waterways, as well as tell tales about gator hunting, fishing, and trapping. Cajuns live off of the land and nothing goes to waste.
Tours are available with or without transportation to and from the Barataria Swamp. Combination tours are also available, including visiting either Destrehan or Oak Alley Plantations; a New Orleans/Katrina tour; or a ghost tour in conjunction with a tour of the swamp. For the more adventurous people, there are airboat tours of the Barataria Swamp. Airboats move at a much faster pace, and you’re out in the open exposed to the elements.
