Traveled out into the bayous, under the immense roadway, and into the wetlands and swamps of LA. Saw baby alligators and the mamma too. Our boat captain was funny with stories and... read more

We had four cabins rented. The second day here we had a cabin have to switch cabins because the sewer broke. Had to... More

Traveled out into the bayous, under the immense roadway, and into the wetlands and swamps of LA. Saw baby alligators and the mamma too. Our boat captain was funny with stories and jokes, and it was nice to actually experience Louisiana bayous after watching Swamp People. What a life! I think you would have to be born into it to...

It's a little off the interstate but way worth it!!!! The food and view are just wonderful! I would highly recommend the grilled catfish curtis if you're wanting seafood and a Louisiana meal. I actually got the curtis with fried catfish instead of grilled and it was delicious. The fried catfish was fried in a batter I've never had before.... More

Two hour trip around Atchafalaya Lake with knowledgeable old character piloting boat. Lots of history and nature tips. Late spring and high water limited birdlife seen. Obligatory 'gator' spotted. We chose standard launch rather than noisy airboat. Cajun group playing in the bar in the afternoon topped things off nicely.

Don't think this is "too outta the way" from I-10 or 90--it's not, and it's totally worth it. I've been here three times and will be back again. Outside of winter (when lily pads can "trap" the boats, so call beforehand if you want), you just show up and you'll be close to a time when a tour is going... More

This was a wonderful and relaxing tour. Not just a wildlife tour, but explains the history of waterway and culture. We were able to see several alligators and different species of birds. Visiting from out of town. Highly recommend

I have been on this tour one other time and it was awesome. I went again and just before it was time to board the boat 11 children most under the age of 7 drove up with their parents and boarded our boat. The trip was not fun. The parents were oblivious to their children running and pushing past us... More

We drove through all of the mainland states, and by far Louisiana was my favourite thanse to this tour, our guide was informative, funny and entertaining. At the end of our swamp tour we state for Sunday lunch at the landing, we were treated to wonderful music, Cajun style that was manic.

I did the swamp tour with a group although my family would have enjoyed it! The hour and a half tour was led by a friendly gentleman who was knowledgable about the basin, the local wildlife and the history. It was a great trip, well worth the money. They have an on site restaurant and bar, with a list of... More
