from Cajun Pride Swamp Tour of Manchac Swamp
Located on the historic and private Manchac Swamp, Cajun Pride Swamp Tours offers an unforgettable swamp boat eco-tour in the heart of Louisiana’s picturesque bayous and swampland. Just a short distance from New Orleans, this privately-owned wildlife refuge offers the opportunity to journey back to the early days of the Louisiana Bayou and swamp explorations. For many years people have traveled extensively to locate a unique and exciting adventure exploring Louisiana's backcountry with its meandering bayous and swamps that you can only experience here.

Being on a privately owned swamp ensures that your narrated tour will not be disturbed by other boats. The tours are led by Cajun boat captains who have grown up in the Bayous of South Louisiana. With their charming accents and humorous storytelling, they will guide you through the enchanting beauty of moss-draped cypress trees, introducing you to the captivating world of American alligators and abundant wildlife.

Swamp creatures see the boats daily and recognize them as part of their normal environment. Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain's call, they peek out from underbrush and between moss-draped trees and shrubs, frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, you can actually come within a few feet of jumping alligators.

As your boat drifts through the waterways, you will learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the swamp inhabitants, particularly the life and habits of the American Alligator, and the unique history of the Cajun town of Frenier within the Manchac Swamp.
