Come with us and discover the hidden gems of the Big Easy Party via pedal or paddle.  Is your bachelor or bachelorette party looking for an adventure?  Try the new party boat or party bike!  The New Orleans booze cruise is a fun way to spend time on the water that is an eco-activity, a workout(if you want it to be) and a party.

New Orleans Eco-Tours

We first started this eco-tour business after looking at all of the tourist activities offered in New Orleans and recognizing that most of them were not ecologically focused.  We read a lot of reviews of other tour operators and noticed that there were plenty of people complaining about swamp tours having too large of groups, the illegal feeding of wildlife with hotdogs and marshmallows, and the overall quality of tours in general. So we set out to create smaller, high-quality tours that focus on the preservation and conservation of Louisiana’s wetlands, wildlife, and culture.

Will be a Highlight of your NOLA Trip!

"Kayaking through the swamp is an experience you can't capture anywhere else. Don't focus on your paddling and just take a moment to soak in the delicate natural beauty and sounds around you. It's one of those "see it to believe it" experiences. Our tour guide Maggie was awesome. Great vibes, super knowledgeable, and you can tell she's passionate about the environment. There's lots to love in NOLA, but this will definitely be on your list to remember."
