About Us

Meet the PNO Team

Pelican New Orleans started out with one man, a boat, and a mission to show visitors the natural beauty of Louisiana.

Nearly 20 years later, Pelican New Orleans has grown to become one of the largest travel and hospitality brands in the Crescent City. Proudly local and family-owned, we take great pride in providing superior service across all of our brands. We owe our success to our passionate team members who love what they do, and love their state of Louisiana.
