Time of year
I got a chance to experience Lake Martin while on a boat tour with Cajun Country SwampTours. The lake and wildlife are spectacular and definitely worth a visit.
This was the most awesome tour. So peaceful and serene. Jimmie our guide lived and breathed the swamp and used no 'props' to entice the gators which was great. He knew a location where Stella the gator hung out and sure enough she was there protecting her babies. Our tour…
If you're interested in seeing snowy egrets, roseate spoonbills and several types of herons in a truly natural habitat, Lake Martin in late January, February and March is the place to be. Also, watch for alligators.
A quiet and interesting boat trip alongside alligators, blue herons, aigrettes and nutria! I recommend at sunset especially for pictures.
I enjoyed seeing the swamp and the many animals living there. An alligator nest with the mother keeping watch over her baby. There were many pretty birds.
