Cajun Encounters

Take a bayou tour of the famous Honey Island Swamp. You’ll glide through gator territory on a small, flat-bottomed boat and hear all about the swamp and its natural inhabitants from our local, expert captains. We offer pickup services from many French Quarter hotels and visitor centers for your comfort and convenience.

We find the best experts in the field to give you an authentic tour of one of America’s most unique ecosystems. Many of our captains have lived on the water for most of their lives and have earned field degrees to give you the best experience possible.

Cajun Encounters is a proud member of the Louisiana Nature Conservancy, and we believe that we have a responsibility to protect the environment around us. We’re dedicated to providing an intimate look at the swamp without impacting the environment or the many diverse species that live there.

On every tour, you’ll have the chance to see alligators, wild boar, raccoons, snakes, owls, egrets, and more – all in their natural habitat, and just a few feet from your boat!
