The tour dock is located at De Pope Launch and Tavern, 6201 E. St. Bernard Hwy., Violet, LA 70092 (just outside of New Orleans and only 12 miles from the French Quarter/Downtown area). If not driving a vehicle, our passengers can easily hire transportation to us at low cost. After the tour, we provide complimentary transportation to destinations within 20 miles of our location. De Pope Launch and Tavern is home of "Da Pope," New Orleans Saints Fan inducted into the Visa Hall of Fans in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Feel free to arrive early to get beverages prior to the tour, and take on the tour. Then you embark on two hours of riding through various waterways, where various wildlife, including alligators, are commonplace. The scenery throughout this tour is beautiful and nothing like most have seen before. Being a local lifetime resident, Captain George will talk about personal experiences and knowledge related to much of what you see. He will stop at one of his crab traps and pull it up for you to see what's inside, and explain how it works. You'll see the "Great Wall of Louisiana," a flood wall constructed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers after Hurricane Katrina and completed in 2013. Midway through the tour, you'll stop at our camp on the bayou that we built ourselves to a peek inside of bayou living. Not only is this tour fun, but also a great learning experience.
I am a lifetime resident of Violet in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana - New Orleans' most historic neighbor. I became a licensed merchant mariner at the age of 20 and am also a commercial crab fisherman. Our tour is very diverse and gives visitors to the area a perspective of life on the bayou that they would not experience anywhere else. I take them through several waterways, where they can see various wildlife (including alligators), camps on the bayou - and stop and take a look inside ours on Happiness Bayou. I also take them to see the flood wall built after Hurricane Katrina. Throughout the tour, I describe to the passengers what they are seeing, and tell many personal stories. Specializing in small tours, our boat seats a maximum of 14-16 people, so the experience feels authentic, personal and never feels overcrowded and commercial.
