NOTE: We HAVE THE ONLY SWAMPTOUR @ LAKEMARTIN with facilities with restroom’s, ect. ALSO, NO NEED FOR INSECT REPELLENT
At Champagne’s Cajun Swamp Tours, visitors have the unique opportunity to come up close and personal with the mystique of the bayou. One of the most exhilarating experiences is holding a baby alligator, feeling its cool, textured skin beneath your fingers and the surprisingly gentle grip of its tiny claws. As you cradle this young reptile, you are reminded of the delicate balance of life in the swamp, where nature’s ferocity and vulnerability coexist. It’s a moment where the wild heart of Louisiana can be felt pulsing in the palm of your hand.
Lake Martin is a favorite destination for Bird Watching or Birding for tourists from all over the world. This flooded forest is home to 205 different species of birds and is one of the largest nesting areas of wading birds. You will see many species of birds, such as Borrowed Owls, Great-horned Owls, Pileated Woodpeckers, Anhinga, Cormorants, Wood Ducks, Yellow (and Black) crowned Night Herons, & The Great Blue Heron. Other wildlife may be seen such as nutria, frogs, snakes, and best of all, gaint alligators.
Along the way, we may see alligators 3 to 14 ft long. Our experienced guides will explain how Cajuns harvested alligator eggs & alligators. You will see Cajuns fishing for Sac-A-lait (Means Sack of Milk), crappie to others in the world along with Catfish, Bream, Largemouth Bass and many other favorite native sports fish.
We will traverse very dense aquatic native, and non-native vegetation to Southern Louisiana in our comfortable tour boats. There are many bird watching opportunities with large amounts of alligators.
