$45 per person for a boat ride through 3 beautiful river channels with a knowledgable local guide. Perfect if you are looking for a boat ride through some cypress trees and to see some cool houseboats. Lack of wildlife due to higher water.

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.
