Take a journey into the swamplands of Louisiana. Picture the moss hanging on gnarled cypress trees as you travel into one of the wildest and most pristine river swamps in America.

As your boat drifts through the waterways, you'll learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp, particularly the life and habits of the
American alligator. You may also see turtles, otters, herons, hawks, ibis, egrets, minks and much more.
