New Orleans, Louisiana, United States
Sightseeing, Swamp Tour
Captain Nolan was born in Larosse, Louisiana and raised on the Mississippi River. When he was 13, he began working with his father on tugboats. Later, in his early 20s, he moved to New Orleans and became a fireman for 20 years before retiring to a life on the swamp. Since 1997, he’s been proud to share his Cajun heritage, love of nature, hunting, shrimping, crabbing and fishing. Captain Nolan (who’s often referred to as our “Teddy Bear” captain) has an extensive knowledge of the wetlands and native wildlife. He’s a true animal lover and when not out on his tours, he’s rescuing stray dogs and finding them loving homes.
