Butch, the owner, personally teaches Cajun Country Swamp Tours guides to bring you a swamp tour that is enjoyable, entertaining, and educational. Your swamp tour will be interlaced with natural history and local lore, while your tour boat treks through moss laden cypress trees and you observe alligators, egrets, herons, turtles, etc. Tours last two hours and we strive to make your swamp tour pleasurable and memorable.

Butch grew up on a small Cajun farm on the Bayou Teche in Breaux Bridge. Early in life his dad introduced him to the swamps of Cajun Country. Working summers on dredge boats, paid his way through college to earn degrees in Botany and Zoology and also Butch witness how the rivers, bayous, wetland areas, man's interventions, and coastal erosion are all intertwined and constantly changing. Everything adds up to give Butch a rich insight into the ecology of Cajun Country swamps.

The swamps are our Joie de Vivre (joy of life) so come with us on an eco-journey to remember.

  • Best swamp tour ever! Bob, our guide, has so much knowledge that he makes the tour really exciting. He spoke to about the Bayou, and the levies. We met a couple of famous alligators and many turtles. Bob takes his time to speak with us and to show all the Wonders of this Bayou. Highly highly recommend!
  • Was visiting Breaux Bridge and literally *randomly* decided to take a swamp tour.... I called the number provider and these lovely people were more than happy to accommodate me. I'd spoken with a nice woman on the phone and Bob(tour guide) knew exactly who I was upon arrival. He was very funny and personable. The tour with him was just awesome. It was very comfortable, btw. We saw lots of alligators, turtles, and birds all the while learning about the ecosystem. I really enjoyed myself.
