Dr. Wagner's Honey Island Swamp Tour
41490 Crawford Landing Rd
Slidell, LA 70461
Honey Island is one of the best excursions around for meeting the egrets and gators of Louisiana. Unlike an airboat tour, the swamp tour lets you slink through the wetlands stealthily enough to actually see animals rather than just scare the hell out of ‘em. Plus the licensed guides here know their cypress from their cottonmouths. You’ll want to make a reservation before going, but chances are if you plan ahead you’ll enjoy this day trip into the honest-to-God wilderness just outside town.
