    Swamp Tours

    Okay, so it's got a little bit of the cheese factor going for it, but I think the Swap Tours are fun. And I love alligators. The tours are a little off the beaten path - they launch from outside the city limits. But if you've never had the chance to experience one I would recommend you do. Our guide was great and well informed on the Louisiana swamps. It's essentially an "alligator hunt". Our guide took us deep into the swamps in search of alligators in their natural habitat. It was a great way to get "up close and personal" to these amazing reptiles. But you also get to experience a little bit of the swamp culture and life. It's also really pretty out there. Bring your camera. Probably the highlight of our trip was meeting Elvis. Our tour operator had a pet baby alligator named Elvis that we got to hold. It was really cool.

    Checking out a Swamp. The Bayou Sauvage National Wildlive Refuge is within the New Orleans city limits.
    All sorts of animals and birds, including plenty of alligators.

    Baby crocodile from the bayou

    A demonstration from our tour guide on crocodile hunting. This baby croc was immediately released into its natural habitat.

    If you're like me, from the big city, then it's not very often that you get to see the swamps and gators! You'll also probably see some egrets and turtles along the way.

    You might see alligators, as well. Our tour leader claimed to know all of them by name.
    Though I forgot how this one was called...
