Down the Bayou

white alligatorSlip into the bayous of South Louisiana.

Discover a wetlands world unlike any other, sultry and still yet teeming with life. Alligators bask just above the surface of slow-moving water. Birds roost in the branches of bald cypress trees whose knobby knees shelter frogs, shellfish, turtles, minnows, and more. Birdsong and insect buzz fill the air as fishermen make their daily catch. Enjoy a uniquely Louisiana journey (minus the mosquitoes) while encountering some of the many animals that make their home in the bayou.
