Eco-Friendly

These two-hour tours run throughout the entire year, and both adults and children are welcome. Using crawfish skiffs, these tours take you deep into the swamp while creating as little impact on the environment as possible. Rest assured that the Yamaha 4-stroke outboard motors are relatively quiet. The tour company has two boats that can accommodate a combination of two to 38 adults, but they can make arrangements for larger groups if needed.

What You Will See

Here in the Cajun swamps, the wildlife you’ll see is breathtaking, which includes alligators, herons, egrets and more. However, it’s not just the wildlife that’s stunning; the trees and plant life are equally as beautiful. You’ll coast through the gorgeous bayou and view ancient cypress trees covered in Spanish moss.

Tour Guides

Conducted by a knowledgeable father and son team, Butch and Shawn Guchereau, you’ll find out all kinds of interesting information about the swamp’s history and ecosystem. With a degree in zoology and botany, Butch developed a deep understanding of the swamplands where he grew up, and he’s passed this information along to his son.

History

In 1755, the French settlers living in Canada, the Acadians, were exiled from their homes by the British in 1755. Acadians moved South, settling in different parts of Louisiana, including this swamp, located just east of Lafayette.

In 1950, the process of building a five-mile levee around Lake Martin began to maintain a constant water depth. The Young Businessman Club wanted to create a public hunting and fishing preserve. Throughout the entire year, the water level in swamps tends to fluctuate. With the construction of a levee, part of the swamp was transformed into an impoundment, which attracted more alligators and wading birds. You can even spot alligators that are over ten feet long in the swamp!
