We are native experienced commercial fisherman. I hold college degrees in Zoology and Botany and have passed this knowledge down to my son, Shawn. Our personal experiences and observations along with my educational background enables us to give you an insightful eco-journey into the swamplands of the Atchafalya Basin that is educational, enjoyable, and entertaining.
The tour area has alligators, egrets, herons, bayous, cypress trees, nutria, otter and other swamp critters. What we see is determine by weather, water levels, seasons, and Mother Nature.
The tour is conducted aboard open swamp people boats (crawfish skiffs) that are designed to get us into the heart of the swamp. The tour boats are powered by environmentally friendly and very quiet Yamaha 4-stroke outboard motors. Our two skiffs combined can accommodate 2 to 24 adults and arrangements for larger groups can be made.
Tours are conducted all year, seven days a week and on holidays. Tour start times vary because of demand, time of year, and weather. Tours last two hours.
