Last Wilderness Swamp Tours
Plaquemine, LA 70764
Tour Duration: 2 hours
A Louisiana swamp tour like no other! By using a small six-passenger boat, I provide an adventure deep into the "magical swamps" of the Atchafalaya Basin where other swamp tours with their big boats can't go. I also offer a very personalized tour without sacrificing the comfort of a bigger boat. The only limit to the places that we can go is the seasonal water level.
The tour lasts about two hours. The boat is powered by a new "quiet & environmentally friendly" 90 HP four stroke outboard.
From Baton Rouge: Go west on I-10 and take the first exit after the Mississippi River bridge (Hwy 1 south). Go south on hwy. 1 to the city of Plaquemine. In Plaquemine turn right at the red light between McDonald's and Burger King, that'll be Hwy 75. Follow Hwy 75 for 6.5 miles until it ends, you'll see a red flashing light and a stop sign, turn left. Follow this road for five miles and you'll be in Bayou Sorrel. The meeting point is in Dale's Trading Post, the first gas station on the left. From New Orleans: Take I-10 West. Take exit 182 toward Donaldsonville. Turn left at LA-22 (south). Follow Hwy 22 south (a left) and take a left again on Hwy 70. Go over Sunshine bridge and after the bridge stay in the right lane toward Donaldsonville (it will become Hwy 3089). Go through Donaldsonville and Hwy 3089 will become Hwy 1. Follow Hwy 1 to White Castle. Go through White Castle and take the first left after White Castle onto Hwy 993. After four miles, turn right onto Hwy 404. After six miles, Hwy 404 ends; turn right onto Hwy 75. Follow Hwy 75 for four miles and you'll be on Bayou Sorrel. The meeting point is Dale's Trading Post, the third gas station on the right.
