Boat Tours of Bayou Vermilion
Cruise Bayou Vermilion in a traditional Louisiana boat and learn the history of Lafayette, Louisiana's "Cajun Capital." A National Park Service ranger will share stories of Indians, farmers, trappers, and traders as you watch for wildlife on the banks and relive another era in an old-fashioned bayou "schoolboat."
Tours leave at 10:30 a.m. and return at noon. Note that although boat tours are offered Tuesday-Saturday, National Park Service rangers lead the tour on Tuesday and Thursday only. Fall cruising season is now over---see you next spring!
Two tour packages are available:
Call Vermilionville at 337-233-4077 ext. 200 or ext. 206 for reservations (required) and information, including information about booking boat tours for groups.
Did You Know?
Alligators have two eyelids! The second inner eyelid is clear and used like goggles while the alligator is under water. These amazing reptiles have been around since before the dinosaurs, and they are designed for life in the water.
