About Lake Martin Swamp Tours

lakemartinHi, I am Marcus de la Houssaye,¬†owner and operator of de la Houssaye’s Swamp Tours for over 25 years.

I am the man, in a flat-bottomed aluminum commercial fishing boat who pioneered the smaller and more personal Louisiana swamp tours that have come to be the most popular tourist attractions in the state of Louisiana today.

I am not the only one who is doing this today, but I was the first to do it commercially in a fishing boat, and a large part of what made my tours special was the boat enabled me to reach pristine wildlife intensive locations where other boats could not go.

In all the places I have used as tour locations, Lake Martin stands out as clean, quiet, easily accessed from I-10, secure parking lot, relativly stable water level, and certainly it is the all time most intensive wildlife experince I have ever found in the wild.

In short; Lake Martin is the best.
