Get Wild on the Bayou

Get Wild on the Bayou

Welcome to Lafourche Parish, affectionately nicknamed “Louisiana’s Cajun Bayou.” If you enjoy adventure and having a wild time on the bayou, this is the tour for you!


Start your day by booking a kayak or paddle board rental with Geaux Paddle. Located in Thibodaux and Raceland, Geaux Paddle is a self-service rental facility that offers you the chance to venture into Bayou Lafourche. Book online to reserve your time, and launch directly into the bayou where you might see an alligator or two.

Next, stop in at one of our Cajun Bayou Food Trail restaurants for lunch. Try something new and get your fix of soft-shell crab, shrimp pulled straight from the Gulf, catfish chips (Pictured), and more! Find local restaurants HERE.

After you’ve fueled up, it’s time to see some alligators! Select from a choice of swamp and airboat tours in Lafourche Parish. Rip through the water on an airboat tour with Airboat Tours by Arthur Matherne. Enjoy the stories of a true local Cajun legend while gliding on a pontoon boat at Zam’s Swamp Tours and Ecological Park (Tour available in French). Or travel Bayou Des Allemands with 2 Da Swamp Tours and see 100-yeard old Cypress trees and of course – friendly alligators (Tour available in French). (Photo Credit: Vesna Dies).

Close out the day by sampling locally produced Cajun beer at Mudbug Brewery in Thibodaux! Learn more about their unique brewing process and sample a few of their flagship brews including: the King Cake Ale, the Café Au Lait Stout, and the Pelican Pilsner.
