We at Cajun Encounters offer pickup services from French Quarter hotels and visitor centers for your comfort and convenience. You'll glide through gator territory on a small, flat-bottomed boat, hear all about the swamp and its natural inhabitants from our local, expert captains, and have an experience you'll never forget! Our top experts in the field have earned field degrees to give you the best experience possible. Many of our captains have lived on the water for most of their lives and have earned field degrees to give you an authentic tour of one of America's most unique ecosystems. 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 in New Orleans, 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!
