I love the views and the birds and how close I got to a couple alligators in the wild and hated the mosquitoes.

Lake Martin has a nice little store, boat docks, wildlife, beautiful cypress and tupelo trees. It is a beautiful, relaxing place to visit. Turn on your gps because there are lots of turns to get to it.

great experience. 2 hours of magic. Very professional helmsman. We did a long 2 hours tour thru all different palces of the lake. 5pm is a great departure time as you can admire sunset. Nothing I disliked!

We have been on a Gulf Coast tour for three weeks and this tour was the highlight. Unbelievably beautiful, lots of wildlife and Butch from Cajun Country Swamp Tours was the best. I am so impressed with Cajun Country tours, they really know about the flora and fauna and they share their knowledge freely without talking the entire time. We... More

Early evening is the very bedtime to go as all the birds are coming home to roost. The tour was very educational and the feeling of peace will stay with us forever

Probably the best swamp tour we during our stay in Louisiana. The place is sanctuary for birds and gators and you can see lots of them. The guide was nice and informative.

We are so blessed to live close by this really beautiful lake. We have also taken tours. The best one by far is Cajun Swamp tours with Mr. Butch or his son Shawn.

Won't attempt to best others' photographs - or words for that matter - but when we finished the two-hour trip around this lake with Butch of Cajun Country Swamp Tours, we were ready to simply stay seated and go around again on the next tour. It's that good, folks. And well worth the fee. Don't miss it!!
