Frequently Asked Questions:
Will we see Cypress Trees and Alligators?
Yes, tours are smack in the middle of the Barataria-Terrebonne Estuary (swamp country) that contains wetland suitable for the Bald Cypress and the Great Cypress. Tours are conducted on private property where there is no hunting allowed so expect to see alligators.
What makes these tours outstanding?
The tours have been conductedon private property for 12+ years. This means no competition in the area, less boat traffic to scare the animals, providing the most private tours possible. All of Captains are born and raised on the Bayou and you will travel through natural wetlands, swamp, and bayous through out the tour.
When is the best time of year to take a Swamp or Airboat Tour?
Spring is incredible with all the animals doing what animals do. The trees and many flowers are in bloom and the nesting period for the waterfowl begins. Summertime is warm and humid which brings out the big Alligators and big birds like the Great Blue Herring and the White Egret. Fall is spectacular with very pleasant weather, an abundance of animals and beautiful foliage. Louisiana's mild winters are 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 freezing.
Are mosquitoes 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 this swamp has a tidal flow so there are no stagnate waters that are the breeding ground for mosquitoes. It is suggested that you take precautionary measures with wearing or bringing mosquitoe repellent.
Are there restrooms - food and drink on the tour boats?
Yes, the swamp boats have a restroom and snacks and drinks available. On the airboat there are no restrooms or food available but there are facilities at the swamp tour site and snacks available at the office.
