Cajun Pride Swamp Boat Tour

  • May 31 · 12:45 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Devoted to preserving Cajun culture by sharing it with the public, Cajun Pride Tours’ knowledgeable and passionate guides lead groups on tours that explore area swamps, plantations along the Great Mississippi River Road, and the historic districts of New Orleans. They also stroll along city streets in the French Quarter in New Orleans, the Garden District, and areas that display the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina. On boat trips, groups can spot friendly gators while floating through the Manchac Swamp—a protected area that prohibits any hunting, fishing, or tickling of the native wildlife. A short drive past the swamps drops tourists off near the area’s plantations that are notable for their history, architecture, landscaping, and insight into Creole culture.

    White water rafting in La? Wait until mid July to the end of Sept.,(peak of hurricane season) then get in the storm surge of a Cat. 1 or better hurricane and ride it in. You will soft land on the marsh grasses and never knew what hit you Maureen. That is La. white water rafting.

    Relaxing cruise down the Bayou Frenier, spying on the gators, crows, slider turtles, racoons and squirrels, as they spied on US and ate marsh mellows. Nice afternoon, topped off by a great Italian meal at Petra's. Great eating with you Dayna, Stefanie and Sandy. A round of thanks and applause to our organizer and tour coordinators.

    Sat, from what I gathered on Groupon is that our ticket is open-ended. Meaning IF we do not use it on Saturday, that we can reschedule it for another date. Am I on target?

    May 29

    • Satyajit

      Don, the groupon can be used for another date but our reservation with the Cajun pride swamp tours will penalize us for no shows. Lisa and David were kind enough to put their credit card on file and reserve spots for our group. I would hate for them to get penalized for a no show.

      May 29

  • Lisa W.

    What if it rains?
    Our tours, including our swamp tour, are offered come rain or shine. We will only cancel our tours in the event of extreme weather conditions and will make every attempt to contact you in the event that a tour is cancelled. Our swamp tour boats are covered, making tours in the rain possible and unlikely to be cancelled.

  • Donald

    Sat, I just purchased my ticket from Groupon. Count me in for Sat. May 31st.

    2 · May 29

    • Satyajit

      Excellent. Our official count is 11 (eleven) for the Cajun Swamp Tour.

      May 29

  • Lisa W.

    On the off chance you forget to bring your Groupon confirmation, as long as you have it on your smartphone, the Swamp Tour can still scan you in.

We want to get an accurate count on the number of people planning on attending the event. Again, I would like to thank Lisa and David for helping us out by saving the time slot for our group. :)

    May 21

  • Satyajit

    I have 2 tix left...$11/tix if anyone is interested.

    May 16

  • Lisa W.

    Don't forget - if you had already made your reservation for the NOON Tour, please call Cajun Pride and update your reservation to the 2:15 Tour. PLEASE say you are with WEISERT Tour. I will be calling 48-hours prior to our departure to find out how many names are under our reservation. I will be adjusting the number of confirmed reservations accordingly. We have basically reserved 1/2 of the boat just for our group! No Shows/Last Minute Cancellations (need at least 24-hour notice) WILL be charged, so it's imperative you update your RSVP for this event.

    May 16

  • Satyajit

    Please check out Lisa's message below.

    1 · May 15

  • Lisa W.

    If you don't want to carpool, the address of the Swamp Tour is 110 Frenier Road, LaPlace, LA 70068. Phone # is[masked]-0758. Meeting time has been changed/will be changed. When you call for a reservation, tell them you are with the 2:15 Swamp Tour with WEISERT. If you can't go and RSVP'd, please update your status.

    1 · May 15

  • Satyajit

    I have three tix for sale - $11/each if anyone is interested.

    March 30

  • Lisa W.

    David and I live in Metairie (Riverside). We have room in our car for 2 people, if anyone wants to carpool.

    1 · March 30

    • Satyajit

      Excellent suggestion.. I have 3 extra spots in my car too.

      March 30

  • Satyajit

    Please buy your tickets ahead of time folks. I don't know how long the groupon will last.

    March 28

  • Satyajit

    I want to mention that the $42 for 4 deal is no longer available. I had to settle for the $22 for 2. Please book your tix in advance before we lose the groupon deal.

    The other thing I wanted to know is if anyone had a place in mind where we could meet. We could go there as a group instead of taking separate cars.

    March 24

  • Satyajit

    I would like to thank Lisa for the groupon special.

    March 22

    • Lisa W.

      Most welcome, Satyajit! It's a lot of fun; looking forward to it! BTW, we can always pool our resources:

      $12 for a swamp tour for one ($24 value)
      $22 for a swamp tour for two ($48 value)
      $42 for a swamp tour for four ($96 value)
