Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Highlight of our NOLA trip! Kids aged 10 and 12 loved it. Felt safe the whole time, loved kayaking into the areas that bigger boats just wouldn’t make it into. Kids managed it though you do have to work harder to make up for them, if they were older/teenagers then they would maybe manage a single kayak but we went in doubles. Loved seeing the gators in their natural environment. Defo recommend!!!

Wonderful trip all around. Alex was a great guide. Timing went smooth, equipment was solid. Kayak location was wonderful. The plantation visit was profound and powerful. Take advantage of a good profession team

Swamp was very peaceful. Kayak was great way to experience. Whitney Plantation is very powerful and somber experience

I went on the extended Manchac tour and cannot recommend this experience highly enough!!! Our guide, Nick, was stellar! His passion for and knowledge of that ecosystem really made it a magical adventure; we were not just traveling through it, we were a part of it! And so much wildlife!! Barred owls (& chicks), Great Egret, Anhinga, Scissor-tailed Kite, and.....Roseate Spoonbill!!! We had first-time paddlers and veteran paddlers and the experience was great for all of us. Already thinking about my next trip back!

I did the Manchac Swamp Wildlife Kayak Tour with MJ and she was a great knowledgeable guide who went above and beyond. I've visited NO many times and this was one of my favorite activities. I ended up going solo and my friends were sorry they missed it. MJ made me feel comfortable even though I was on my own.

Fantastic way to experience the bayou! Enjoyed Nick's commentary on the wildlife and swamp ecosystem. Equipment was stable and well maintained, drive out from New Orleans took about 40 minutes.

Absolutely wonderful way to spend the afternoon! Our guide was knowledge and friendly. The pick up made it easy to get out of the city and still make it to dinner.

This trip is amazing. My friend and I wanted to experience New Orleans on the less touristy side and this tour allowed us to do that. The pick up location was fairly close to our hotel in the french quarter and our tour guide Alex was amazing. We paddled through the swamps and saw gators, owls and cotton mouth snakes. We freaked out a bit because the gators come straight to the boat, but once we got comfortable, it was great. Definitely recommend if you want to see the swamps etc. Would 10/10 do again. just remember to bring sunscreen and bottles of water, since lunch is not provided.

Though we were a mixed group - both in ages and experience levels - Chelsea made it all come together very nicely. We really enjoyed our trip into the swamp - lots of alligators (but small enough to not be threatening).
