VIP Swamp tours with Eco Tours New Orleans take place at our tour headquarters just 30 minutes’ drive from New Orleans’ historic French Quarter. 

Our swamp tours traverse both man-made and natural waterways, exploring the canals, bayous, and inlets of coastal Louisiana. At Eco Tours New Orleans, our goal is immersion: while journeying with us you will feel like you are part of the swamp, experiencing it from the inside. This is why we use professionally-maintained, custom-fitted boats perfect for exploring the wetlands as quietly as possible and Captains as tour guides with lifelong experiences in the bayous of Louisiana. We show you the unique qualities of the land, both the large-scale species and structures that give it its shape and the smaller, more detailed features that give it character and depth.

All our captains are licensed by the United States Coast Guard and are knowledgeable, experienced outdoorsmen able to answer all your questions about the precious resource that is Louisiana’s coast.

Custom, private, executive and large group tours available, Special custom tours include Nighttime Swamp Tours, New Orleans Seaplane Tours and Sea Plane Fishing Trips to Louisiana’s Barrier Islands, Charter Boat Fishing Trips, Alligator Hunts and more.
