The boats we use are open Cajun Crawfish Skiffs (Swamp People Boats) which are designed to get us through the trees and up close to wildlife. They are powered by very quiet environmently friendly 4-stroke outboard motors.

We provide Free cold bottle water on the tour boat during warmer months.

Butch Guchereau the owner/operator is a Breaux Bridge native cajun and has college degrees in Zoology and Botany. Butch paid his way through college by working dredge boats during the summers on the Mississippi and Atchafalaya River systems where he experienced the dynamic forces that have built the land of Acadiana. Butch  learned how the rivers, bayous, wetland areas, man's interventions and coastal erosion are all intertwined and constanly changing.  His educational background and personal experiences growing up in and around swamps has given Butch rich insight into the ecology of Louisiana swamps.

Butch has imported this knowledge and insights to Shawn, who he has had in the swamps since he was in diapers.  Today because of all the knowledge Shawn was taught and has learned on his own, Butch calls him the "Bayouoligist"

 Bob Gary, Breaux Bridge native as well as a close family friend, has college degree in liberal arts and his heart in the swamp.  As a hobby he walks the swamps looking for interesting cypress wood pieces which he makes into one of a kind cypress clocks. 
                                                                                                                   Bob learned from Butch and did reserch of his own and as his reviews on Yelp attest he is a great guide.

Our Tour Guides will do their best to bring you the best swamp experience possible.

      My son and I have spent most our lives either learning about or earning an income from the swamps of Cajun Country-this is where we want to be.  The swamps are our passion and Joie de Vivre (joy of life), and sharing a couple hours with people who love and enjoy nature is an enjoyable experience for us.

    Hope to see you soon
