There is something magical about the swamps and bayous of Louisiana - they are iconic, and now through Champagnes Cajun Swamp Tours you can be a part of it!
Champagnes Cajun Swamp Tours let families experience the real soul of these Louisiana swamps, in the heart of Lake Martin. Offered in French and English, the tours are a great way for the family to explore nature, the wilderness, and learn all about this incredible part of America!
The tours are relaxing, and authentic, and you will really get a sense of the area. You will travel into very dense aquatic areas that are filled with native and non-native vegetation. Keep your eyes opened, because there are a host of bird watching opportunities as you make your way through 500 year old moss covered trees! You might spot Wood Ducks, or Borrowed Owls, or even the Great Blue Heron!
Kids can learn all about the history of the Spanish Moss, and even how it was used many years ago. Did you know that there are still many uses today? Pretty incredible!
Did you ever wonder how the cypress trees were harvested when they didn't have boats available? You will find out through these tours. You can even examine pieces of drift wood and roots and learn about how they live in their environment.
And yes, we know you are dying to know - you may very well spot alligators! It is the bayou after all. Some might be only 3ft long, but some might be as long as 14ft! Yikes! The guides can teach you how Cajuns harvested the eggs and the alligators too!
