Champagne's Cajun Swamp Tours offers the opportunity to travel through a swamp on Lake Martin. The tours are given in 17-seat open-air boats, and the tour guides navigate their slow-moving tours through cypress groves as they recite a history of the area and the lake, their own stories, wildlife descriptions, and general information about the plants and animals seen along the way.

Giving multiple tours daily, the guides' knowledge of the swamps makes this the likeliest way to see wildlife on the swamp such as nutria, birds and alligators. Guides are talkative, encourage questions from guests, and are good at trying to accommodate differeint visitors' needs. Tours generally last around 90 minutes and begin and end at their dock. They also have a small shop with a selection of snacks and merchandise along with an outdoor seating area for waiting at.

Overall, Champagne's Cajun Swamp Tours is a good fit for tourists and families looking to join a tour to get a little deeper into a Louisiana swamp environment. For more information, call them at 337.230.4068 or visit www.ChampagnesSwampTours.com.
