Couret is a gem. There's only a few around left like him. I'd highly recommend you do his tour. He know's the swamp like the back of his hands and makes for an enjoyable endeavor. So enjoyable I'm going back this weekend!

Winter is not the best time to do swamp tours......but Couret still managed to find us some big gators and beautiful bird life! We called him enroute to Lafayette and he met us an hour and half later - fabulous service.
