Cajun Country Swamp Tours is near Lafayette, Louisiana just 7 miles from Interstate10 at the Breaux Bridge Exit (109). Owned and operated by Walter "Butch" Guchereau and his son, Shawn, who are proud to offer to you eco-swamp tours that are done with as little environmental impact as possible through a beautiful surreal cypress/tupelo swamp that is sure to charm and excite your imagination. On the way to the tour you will cross the historic Bayou Teche and pass through the small Cajun town of Breaux Bridge.
We are native experienced commercial fisherman and avid outdoors men. I hold college degrees in Zoology and Botany and have passed this knowledge down to my son, Shawn. Our personal experiences and observations along with my educational background enables us to give you an insightful eco-journey into the swamplands of Acadiana that is educational, enjoyable, and entertaining.
The tour area, Cypress Island/Lake Martin Swamp, near Lafayette, is famous for its impressive scenic beauty and wildlife. Alligators, egrets, herons, bayous, ancient cypress trees covered with Spanish moss and more of what you envision a Louisiana swamp to be are waiting for you on Cajun Country Swamp Tours.
The tour is conducted aboard open swamp people boats (crawfish skiffs) that are designed to get us into the heart of the swamp. The tour boats are powered by environmentally friendly and very quiet Yamaha 4-stroke outboard motors. Our two skiffs combined can accommodate 2 to 38 adults and arrangements for larger groups can be made.
Tours are conducted all year, seven days a week and on holidays. Tour start times vary because of demand, time of year, and weather. Tours last two hours.
