The Top Ten

1 Cajun Encounters Tour Co. Swamp Tour

Honey Island swamp tour is an absolutely a do-not-miss! You get to see the best and most beautiful of the bayou on small tours, which are more personal than the big boats that lumber around and scare the gators. Lots of gators, and beautiful scenery.
