We absolutely loved Captain Billy and the tour! Learned a lot of interesting facts about the swamp and it's inhabitants. Can't wait to go back and see the Bald Eagles in the Fall! Nikki and Steve Verberne

Capt. Billy Gaston was fantastic from start to finish. He proactively called us to offer changing to the afternoon trip due to a large group scheduled for the morning trip, making our visit even better. The trip itself is relaxed, educational and entertaining. He is great with kids and adults, ride is safe and smooth, in fact even my wife... More

No more than 10 minutes down stream, guides phone rang and it was a couple that hadn't shown up....he turned around and went back....turns out it was a family from Germany who had gotten lost.....instead of getting irritated, guide made every effort to accommodate everyone and gave us extra time for the inconvenience. Guide gave the kids on board extra... More

We did this same swamp tour last year and my 7 year old talked about it for an entire year. Capt Billy Gaston makes this swamp tour very entertaining for children and interesting for adults. We brought along our 9 month old baby this year. Perfect for those looking to get a real taste of Louisiana. The groups have been... More

Who knew that there was so much to learn in the Bayou? But Captain Billy Gaston is the man to be your guide. He's knowledgeable, interesting, and interested in others, with a passion for the Bayou and and enthusiasm to share all that he knows. From beginning to end of our "swamp tour,"we learned so much about the people about... More

Captain Billy Gaston is a class act! From start to finish he entertains and teaches you about the swamps and bayous. It is also very obvious that he truly loves and cares about the land he takes you to. I would recommend this trip to everyone. I had a blast and got way more than I paid for. Thanks Captain!

Sorry that I am getting this up so late. A few weeks ago, we were in New Orleans and wanted to go on a bayou tour. We picked Cajunman at random and could not be happier that we did. If you have any desire (or even if you don't)you need to go on this tour. Cajunman is a true Cajun,... More
