UNIQUE ECO-TOUR ADVENTURE
Our swamp tour is not your typical “tourist trap” because profit is not the main goal for us. Our goal is to educate and gain support in protecting this seriously threatened paradise.
LOUISIANA SWAMP TOUR LIKE NO OTHER!
As a family owned and operated business we share the same passion for the swamp. Because we use smaller boats, we have the ability to venture deep into the magical swamps of the Atchafalaya Basin, where air boats and bigger boats can not go. Therefore, we provide a personalized swamp tour without sacrificing the comfort of a bigger boat. One of our boats is powered by a quiet & environmentally friendly 90hp four stroke Yamaha outboard and our larger boat (slightly wider and two feet longer) is propelled by a powerful 150hp Yamaha (hold on to your hats!). Our tour lasts a minimum of two hours. Due to the long length of the tour and the fact that it is personalized makes our tour the best value in Louisiana by far.
We will be exploring part of largest contiguous forested wetland in North America, the Atchafalaya Basin. The average difference in water levels from season to season can be as much as 8-9 feet depending on the amount of water coming from the Mississippi River. As the water rises and falls, it provides different habitats for different flora and fauna, making every swamp tour truly unique. We will experience breathtaking views, gigantic cypress trees, local culture, and native wildlife. This tour is a great adventure for people of all ages.
This is not an alligator tour. We see only wild alligators in their natural habitat. We do not feed alligators or any wildlife. American alligators are more timid and less aggressive than people think. They are naturally afraid of people. It is rare for a human to be attacked by an alligator. Attacks are more likely when an alligator is being fed or if it is around people often. This makes them used to people and they become less afraid of humans. These type of alligators are more likely to become a nuisance and possibly dangerous and end up being killed or relocated. However, wild alligators tend to stray away from the sight of humans unless you are too close to their nest or their babies. Even in this case, the mother alligator often makes a hissing noise to warn you not to get any closer. We strive to provide the most genuine and authentic experience possible. Feeding wildlife consistently encourages animals to become reliant on that food source rather than feeding naturally. Besides, there are over 100 species of fish and shellfish that they can snack on in the Atchafalaya Basin! Although they are known to eat just about anything….
We take great value in providing the most authentic swamp tour possible. We would love to hear your feedback and your experience!
