Beyond the world famous airboat and swamp tours offered at McGee's, we also host special events throughout the year that celebrate our joie de vie (joy of life)! Events include Christmas themed tours led by Papa Noel, Valentine's sunset dinner cruises, haunted Halloween tours, guest tour guides, and other celebrations which focus on Louisiana's unique swamp environment and heritage.

Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page to take advantage of one of our special events tours!


This is not a dream.....


This October, venture into the heart of the swamp for the first ever haunted experience in the Atchafalaya Basin! The approx. 90-minute experience will combine a boat ride to a mysterious island deep within the swamp, where guests will disembark the boat to walk a 1/2 mile scare trail.


To limit the spoiling of the experience, details are intentionally limited.
