    Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tours
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Enjoy this Louisiana Swamp experience — a unique outdoor adventure that is safe, organized, fun, and educational. Upon arrival at the starting location on the West Pearl River, in Slidell, Louisiana, venture in to the gift shop overlooking the Tupelo and Cypress swamp and check in for the tour. Be sure to take a look out of the back window to see if any backyard guests are lurking in the murky waters below. Don’t forget to use the restrooms before embarking on this 2-hour tour throughout nearly 70,000 acres of the Honey Island Swamp, a permanently protected wildlife preserve. While walking down the dock, embrace the excitement of seeing the moss hanging from the gnarled cypress trees and the sweet smell of wild azaleas in the air. There's an undeniable eagerness to explore. Listen intently to the captain’s tales of pirates, Bigfoot, and prehistoric creatures roaming the region while entering the primitive beauty of the Honey Island Swamp. Keep an eye out for alligators, herons, egrets, deer, feral hogs, nutria, raccoons, otters, turtles, and frogs — an abundance of wildlife along the banks and the in the murky waters. Or look up and out for bald eagles, owls, osprey, and other waterfowl soaring through the skies. They could be visible one second and gone the next. Those touring Honey Island can easily see why Louisiana is known as the Fisherman’s Paradise. Passing through the Cajun village, where local fisherman reside, see them catching bluegill, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, and warmth. Thousands of pounds of crawfish are caught in these waters every season as well. All the tour boats are inspected and approved by the US Coast Guard. These small, custom-built, flat-bottom boats transport approximately 20-24 individuals each. They are operated by experienced local guides who interact with the guests and make the trip both enjoyable and exciting. With the journey back up the river, the captain leads the way to the original departure location to close out the tour. NOTE: This option does NOT include transportation to and from New Orleans. Please select "Honey Island Swamp Tour with Pick-up from New Orleans," should you need hotel pick up.

    Took the first boat out at 11:30 with Captain Tony. Had about 18 people in a covered boat but didn’t feel cramped in any way. Lucked out getting front seat of boat which was great for cruising view but was rather cold so would suggest pants and hoodie. Tony was top notch

    No gators. Just drove down the river and saw a bird. Then went through boring swamp and went back learning nothing.

    Tony is a very skilled boat operator and an excellent tour guide. While it is getting too cold to see alligators, Tony's sharp eyes spotted one. We also saw a family of raccoons, a wild hog, turtles and osprey. Tony gave us the history of the area, a description of life on the

    Kyle was a great guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw raccoons and wild pigs. Too cold this time of year to see alligators. I would recommend this tour.
