Gibson, Louisiana — BATON ROUGE, La. (THE LOUISIANA WEEKEND) - Our second stop on The Louisiana Weekend On The Road series is in Gibson, Louisiana for the Cajun Man’s Swamp Tour through the Atchafalaya Basin. On this tour, we saw Louisiana wildlife including, alligators, bald eagles, many more fish and birds. We experienced the marsh as well as the swamp. Also on this tour, we had a chance to feed the alligators.
This is a very popular tour, as people travel from all over Louisiana and all over the world to experience the Louisiana swamp up close. Our tour included a family from New York and a group of friends from Germany. The tour is approximately two hours long. Wear comfortable clothing. Bring a camera to take pictures of the beautiful landscape and unbelievable photos of the wildlife.
Captain Billy Gaston is the owner and tour guide of the Cajun Man’s Swamp Tour. He said the tour is “a place where you can take your family and friends, people from out of town or maybe out of the country just to show them the beautiful Louisiana Swamps and bayous at its best. This whole area is a part of the Atchafalaya Basin and its some of the most beautiful swamp and bayous in our state.”
