I was blown away by how beautiful the swamp is! My wife and I had the opportunity to visit New Orleans and we wanted to experience the unique geography and ecology so we decided to explore the swamp. We chose to to book an airboat tour with Louisiana Tour Company and it was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us quite a ride through the many canals and byways. We went during February it was definitely the "off-season" for most of the wildlife but we still saw alligators, turtles, and even a bald eagle off in the distance. The highlight of the tour was when our guide let us hold a 1 year old alligator, such an amazing creature! I thoroughly enjoy the airboat ride through a beautiful ecosystem and highly recommend it to everyone!
