New Orleans is unique, and ASA plans to give you a taste of its culture, nature, and amenities. However you define "fun" - New Orleans has it.

Thursday, March 7, 1:00 pm - Louisiana Swamp Tour

Swamp Tour: $200 per person (Included in full registration cost)

Embark on an unforgettable bayou airboat adventure into the Louisiana swamps outside New Orleans!

The tour begins with comfortable transport by private motorcoach to a scenic 20,000-acre cypress wetland preserve near the Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve. After enjoying an authentic Cajun crawfish boil and barbecue, climb aboard a flat-bottomed airboat and feel the breeze on your face as you zip through shallow marshes and bayous lined with moss-draped cypress and tupelo gum trees.

Get your camera ready for photo ops of a stunning variety of wildlife, including plenty of alligators sunbathing on rocks, turtles, snakes, and vibrant birds like egrets, herons and ibis. Also watch for hawks, owls, bald eagles, white-tailed deer, raccoons, and nutria. Your guide may even feed an alligator or two right from the boat!

Before heading back to the excitement of the Big Easy, tour the indoor alligator exhibits - including a rare albino alligator.

With privileged access to swampy wilderness found nowhere else, this is a true New Orleans outing you won't forget.
