We offer guided swamp boat tours and guided kayak tours in the Maurepas Wildlife Management Area, which is halfway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Our swamp tours are 6 guests or less and are consistently rated 5 stars. Our captains/guides are passionate and knowledgeable and the swamp boats are customized and comfortable. The kayaks are 2020 models and handle easily in the quiet swamps.
We are an ecotour company that believe in respecting the natural environment where we travel and we never feed or bait the wildlife.
"I searched high and low for an animal-friendly and environmentally-friendly swamp/bayou tour that was COVID-safe, and Beyond the Bayou was the answer! No feeding animals, low-impact boat, masks throughout, etc. Our tour guide Albert was fantastic - he knew EVERYTHING about the bayou, from trees to plants to animals to birds to history, and was kind and engaging too. Thank you so much, Albert and Beyond the Bayou!" —Google review by Andrew G.
