Hi my name is Josh! I am a local native New Orleanian! I grew up exploring the swamps and wetlands with my father since I was a small child. I started Wild Louisiana Tours 7 years ago to provide guests to New Orleans a kayaking experience in the swamps. We have been providing guests of all ages and experience levels a high quality kayak swamp tour ever since! I hope you join us on a kayak swamp tour in the Manchac Swamp.

Great day trip! We enjoyed getting away from the city for a bit and seeing some wildlife. Our guide, Max, was great. You could tell he brought lots of experience to the table and was very personable. Overall a great experience. We’d do it again.

We had Josh for our tour. He was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and history. We had a gator encounter, and he handled it with care. So much fun! We are avid kayakers, but he took time to make sure everyone felt comfortable. He also kept the tour very relaxed and it was a great tour through the area.

Escape boozy Nola for a beat and work off some of the night before! What an experience to be seated next to alligators and surrounded by beautiful flora. I had been to New Orleans before, yet never done gone through the swamps. Nice little morning of respite. Easy pick up and drop off location.

The tour was great! Very knowledgeable guide, decent size group, we got to choose between single or tandem kayaks. Getting picked up and dropped off in the quarter made it very convenient.
