“The mission of our Louisiana tours is to promote education and conservation, not only of the local ecosystems but of the culture and traditions that make Southern Louisiana so unique,” said Beyond the Bayou founder Jared Sternberg. “We accomplish this through day-to-day ethical practices, small group learning sessions and our partnerships with independent local operators, naturalists, and cultural guardians whose values match our aim to help preserve and protect.”
In addition to the “Ultimate Cajun Country Adventure,” Beyond the Bayou offers day trips to New Orleans and the surrounding area. On these tours guests paddle scenic swamps with naturalist guides, tour a historic sugar plantation, explore the famous Treme neighborhood and learn about the history of Creole culture and Jazz music.
“Our focus on nature and culture provides a unique tour experience, and we are committed to minimizing our environmental impact and preserving the communities that make this area so special,” said Sternberg.
