Lake Martin is one of the most favored settings for photographers filming birds and animals in their natural environs. It is close to Lafayette and well worth the time to visit. All self guided.

The boating experience in this area is so interesting as the waterways of the Bayou are worth u derstanding and the Lake is all part of the system.

Nature at its best. Sign up with Cajun Swamp Tours to really appreciate it! Butch will show you all the nature which is in this lake and the swamps he grew up in.

Explored the Swamplands in the Cajun Country and the Lake Martin area the one was of most interest. We took a boat out at sunset, the light was subdued and beautiful, the Cypress trees were magnificent, and the many birds and alligators were abundant.

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.
