Set out on an exhilarating airboat ride deep into secluded bayous in Cajun Country on an active, family-friendly tour! Travel over bayous and open waterways around the colorful, historic fishing village of Jean Lafitte, named after a 19th-century smuggler. Spy alligators in the wild -- as well as raccoons, native birds and large river rodents called nutria -- as your native guide provides interesting commentary.
Continue your adventure of the deep south as you make a trip to Destrehan Plantation, a lavishly restored Greek Revival antebellum mansion on Louisiana's Old River Road, for a glimpse into the historic past of New Orleans. Here you will have free time to enjoy lush gardens and majestic live oaks. This tour is a great way to explore the most iconic New Orleans sites while your ship is docked!
Once you've disembarked your ship at the Port of New Orleans, your guide picks you up and takes you to the quaint and remote Cajun Village close to Paradis, LA. Here, you embark on a high-speed ride onboard small airboats, comfortably gliding over marshes and venturing deep into secluded bayous for approximately 2 hours. You may even get to hold a baby alligator, feed giant catfish, or meet a nutria face to face!
Then, travel to the Destrehan Plantation for a guided tour. This historic plantation, on Louisiana's Old River Road, is a lavishly restored Greek Revival antebellum mansion. Here you will have free time to enjoy lush gardens and majestic live oaks.
