Bayou Tours: See The World Just Outside New Orleans

Why do people travel? To experience something new and different. To see unique landscapes and taste exotic foods. Louisiana is the perfect destination for those seeking new, different, unique, and exotic. If you’re planning on visiting New Orleans, consider adding Bayou Tours to your trip. With Adventures of Jean Lafitte, provide an easy, affordable—and unforgettable— Louisiana experience.  

The Real Louisiana

The frivolity and cuisine of New Orleans are understandably high on everyone’s bucket lists. But you haven’t truly experienced Louisiana until you step into our bayous. Our bayou tours make it hassle-free. Adventures of Jean Lafitte will pick you up right from your New Orleans hotel. Our launch is only about 35-40 minutes from the Crescent City in the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve.

Bayou Tours At Your Speed

Choose from one of our many daily tours. Tours are offered throughout the year at a variety of times—from 9:45 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Once you arrive, you’ll board one of our pontoons driven by a U.S. Coast Guard-certified captain. All boats are wheelchair- and stroller-friendly and the tour is appropriate for all ages. You’ll see moss-strewn cypress trees, local wildlife boasting both feathers and scales, and meet some true Cajuns—their wit and stories are often the main attraction! Check out our photo galleries to get an appetizer.

Float Back In Time

Our namesake, Jean Lafitte, was a dastardly pirate in the early 19th century. Despite his reputation of looting and smuggling, Louisiana remembers him as a hero for his role in the Battle of New Orleans. Our tours take you even further back in time than this legendary buccaneer. You’ll experience the state’s untouched bayous as some of the original settlers of Louisiana, the Cajuns, did in the 1700s.

Unsurprisingly, alligators are the official state reptiles of Louisiana. You’re very likely to see at least one of these giant lizards on one of our bayou tours. Biologically speaking, they are the living descendants of dinosaurs. The sight of one of these huge creatures sunbathing on a log may just transport you to prehistoric times as well. In 90 minutes, you’re transversing millennia of history!
