We feed plenty of alligator friends along the way daily and you will see lots of wildlife and many bird species. Regular tour times are at 10:30 a.M. And 1:30 p.M. From Mon. Through sat. And 2:00 p.M. On sun. Other tour times can be made on any day and at anytime if you have 10 or more. We can also do private tours and sunset tours. Captain Billy Gaston is a licensed boat captain and he was born and raised on the bayous of South Louisiana. The tour boat is a 42 passenger coast guard approved, inspected vessel with a covered roof and bathroom felicity, which is great for large bus tours and school field trips. From Sept. Through may you will see the bald eagles and other migratory birds up close and watch mama bird feed her baby's in the nest from Feb. Through April. "Da' Cajun man" can also line you up with many other cajun adventures while you visit us here in the heart of "Real" Cajun country.

We also have the best restaurants, museums, plantations, etc. So whatever you want to see and do while you are here in Louisiana, just let us know and we will line you up.
