Despite all common appearances, we are anything but your typical swamp tour. Our mission is focused on educating our customer on the importance and impact of the Louisiana Wetlands, and the devastation that’s caused by the everyday dredging and mining taking place on the Lousiana Coast. After taking our tours, you’ll see why the wetlands are worth fighting for, and why their loss will be destructive to the residents of Southeast Louisiana, the safety of New Orleans, and the economy nation-wide.
You’ll start with an in-depth audio-visual education on the history of this problem and the proposed cures from our staff of award-winning experts.
Then come with us for a first-hand experience into the beauty and peril of the largest wetlands ecosystems left in the lower 48 states.
We’ll take you by kayak, motor boat and foot to up-close experiences few get the chance to see. You’ll cruise barrier islands surrounded by schools of dolphins. You’ll visit Mangrove rookeries hosting thousands of nesting pelicans, herons, egrets and roseate spoonbills. You’ll paddle quietly through cypress swamps guarded by alligators, turtles, owls and eagles.
But you’ll also see the damage caused by the nation’s neglect and poor stewardship. You’ll visit sites where unwise development has left behind dying deltas – graveyards not only for fish and wildlife but entire communities that have been replaced by open water.
Visitors who have taken the journey with us say it’s an experience they will never forget.
That’s what Lost Lands Tours is all about.
