They have spray on the oats on all we have been on but you probably will not need it. Wear what is comfortable.

I've never been bothered by bugs or insects in NOLA, even on the swamp tours (altho we did take spray for the nighttime tour, we didn't really need it for anything that bites!) As for what to wear, it depends on what the temperature of the day will be like. If it's sunny and warm, like Cajunyank said, wear whatever is comfortable.

I suggest bringing a sweather or jacket if you're doing the morning tour. I found out last October that it doesn't matter how warm it is in the city, when that boat is going full speed, it will be cool.

porelly, I'm assuming you didn't do the pontoon, cause even at full speed, most of us walk faster than that! LOL!

Oh and yes we bring bug repellent. Just in case. We ran into bugs sitting outside as dusk once.
