see Cypress Trees and Alligators?
Yes, we are smack in the middle of the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary
(swamp country) that contains wetland suitable for the Bald Cypress
and the Great Cypress. We conduct our tours on private property
where there is no hunting allowed so expect to see alligators.
your company better than the rest?
We conduct our tours on private property and have been doing so
for 22 years. This means no competition in the area, less boat traffic
to scare the animals, we can provide the most private tours possible.
All of our Captains are born and raised on the Bayou and we travel
through natural wetlands, swamp, and bayous through out the tour.
the best time of year to take a Swamp or Airboat Tour?
Spring is incredible with all the animals doing what animals do
while the trees and many flowers are in bloom and the nesting period
for the waterfowl begin. Summertime is warm and humid which brings
out the big Alligators and big birds like the Great Blue Heron
and the White Egret. Fall is spectacular with very pleasant weather,
an abundance of animals and beautiful foliage. With our mild winters
this is a great time of year also, winter brings out the fur-bearing
(fuzzy) animals, like Nutria, deer, mink, otters and the migratory
birds and alligators are still present as long as it is not below
a problem in the swamp?
No not really. During daylight hours you will have to search high
and low to find one so they are not a concern. At dawn and dusk
they can be present however our swamp has a tidal flow so we do
not have stagnate waters that are the breeding ground for mosquitoes.
We do suggest that you take precautionary measures with adding mosquitoes
restrooms - food and drink on the tour boats?
Yes, on the swamp boats we do have a restroom and we do have snacks
and drinks available. On the airboat there are no restrooms or food
available but we do have facilities at the swamp tour site and snacks
at the ticket office.
