Hurricane Update

Dear Valued Partners, Residents, and Visitors:

The Jefferson Convention and Visitors Bureau hopes that you and your families are safe following Hurricane Ida.

While our team members – like so many in our parish – have suffered from damage to homes, as well as loss of power and water, we are grateful that all are safe and remain committed to supporting you as we restore our region together.

As we work diligently to bring our communications back online, please be patient and rest assured that our commitment to our parish and to you is unwavering.

Swamp Tours in Jefferson Parish

We think the best way to see all of the beauty Jefferson Parish has to offer is on a swamp tour. Get up close and personal with an alligator. Glide through beautiful moss-covered cypress trees. Learn about the hidden wetlands from knowledgeable boat captains. Travel at high speeds through the swamps on an airboat tour. Or, take a more leisurely tour on a boat. You can even rent kayaks and see the swamps at your own pace. Before leaving Jefferson Parish, make sure to add a swamp tour to your bucket list!

Enjoy a Total Cajun Experience at Jean Lafitte Harbor! Tour the bayous of Lafitte and experience an educational, interactive, hands-on approach to what it’s like to be a Cajun. Pull up a crab trap, bait and set trout lines, set a jug line, and possibly spy a gator. After you see how this amazing seafood is caught, go back to the pavilion where one of their in-house chefs will present and prepare the food caught in the bayous in the beautiful town of Jean Lafitte. Travel with us on an airboat adventure!

Travel back in time and learn about a real Southern plantation. Costumed tour guides will intrigue you with the history and unique architectural features of the era. Enjoy beautiful gardens, ancient oaks and southern hospitality.

Whether your passion is outdoor adventure, culinary delights, history or culture, Jefferson Parish, LA has got it all!
