I went on this cruise years ago with the prior Capt. Black Guidry. I was skeptical about Capt. Billy Gaston carrying on the tradition. I was proven wrong. Capt. Billy was raised and supported himself for years hunting, fishing and trapping in the swamps and gave a clear picture of all the riches there. I went with 5 children 7... More

My family lives fairly close to where this tour begins and had family coming into town, so we wanted to take them on a swamp tour. This tour was AMAZING!! The guide, Captain Gaston, bought this business about ten months ago, but he has lived around the swamp his whole life. He has many personal stories to tell, can spot... More

The tour is driven and guided by a man born and raised in the bayou. Very pedagogic, lots of information on wildlife, bayou equilibrium and history, alligator hunting. Totally recommended.

This was an amazing time for our family, Captain Billy knows the bayou inside and out. The kids were able to feed the alligators and we saw bald eagles up close. Captain Billy was friendly, knowledgable and just had a great time with us. We highly recommend A Cajun Man's Swamp Cruise!!

Captain Billy Gaston was an excellent tour guide. He has many years of personal hunting experience in the bayou and really appreciates the swamp. He had great stories, fed the gators, called some gators to the boat by name, and has hands on examples. He was witty, entertaining, informative, and personable! This was the "real" bayou from start to finish!... More

What a wonderful tour! Billy Gaston gave an amazing, knowledgeable tour. Time was taken to ensure we got a total swamp experience. Feeding T-Boy was awesome!

We spontaneously found "A Cajun Man's Swamp Tour" and got lucky because there were free spots available in the boat and we only had to wait 30 minutes (don't know about high season, though). The guide was a very friendly man, very informative, told great stories and tried very hard to get all the interesting animals close to the boat... More

Captain Billy literally had the swamp eating out of his hands. A 15 foot gator got off the bank and swam beside the boat. Saw numerous bald eagles - two of which fed in the water near the boat. Captain Billy also gave us an awesome history, biology and wildlife education and suggested several true Cajun restaurants. Try some alligator... More
