Over the weekend I had the pleasure of taking a bayou boat tour of the famous Honey Island Swamp. We glided through gator territory on a small, flat-bottomed boat and heard all about the swamp and its natural inhabitants from Captain Jules with Cajun Encounters Tour Co.
The approx. 2-hour boat tour, we saw several alligators, birds, and giant spiders! Adult tickets are only $29 and there are several tour times to pick from. Check them out next time you are in New Orleans!
