A 40-minute drive (they'll pick you up) over Lake Pontchartrain lands you at Honey Island Swamp Tours on the Pearl River. The swamp here is a veritable treasure trove of Louisiana wildlife, with owls, boars, snakes, eagles, and turtles among the main attractions. Of course, the highlight is a close-up encounter with one of the resident alligators, and the small boats used in the tours here mean that visitors can get closer to the action. The expert guides, many of whom have field degrees, are Louisiana natives and know these wetlands well. Look out for the fabled Ivory Billed Woodpecker.
