Welcome!

Come explore the heart of the Barataria Basin, where the dark bayou waters hide silent alligators alongside the secrets of notorious pirate Jean Lafitte. Remnants of the past are still present in this historic fishing village and the trails and waterways traversing the area.

Only a short distance from the big city of New Orleans, Jean Lafitte and its bayou culture feels like a world apart. Spend the day here, touring the mysterious swamps, eating some of Louisiana’s best seafood and learning about the people and their unique way of life.
