DePierre’s Swamp Tours

Atchafalaya Basin Bridge
Breaux Bridge LA, United States

Sit back, relax, and join David DePierre on an unforgettable freshwater fishing trip or sightseeing tour in the largest wetland and swamp in the United States: the Atchafalaya Basin. This stunning area is known worldwide for its cypress-tupelo swamps that provide a unique habitat for a great diversity of wildlife, and DePierre’s Swamp Tours is a veteran-owned company that will guide you through the area’s unmissable highlights.

Your trip will take place aboard a comfortable and durable 18 ft G3 Jon boat that can access the shallowest of backcountry waters. Holding up to three guests for fishing trips and five for nature tours, the boat is very stable and has ample space to perfect your cast or to capture the perfect shot on your camera.

If you choose to spend your trip fishing, you will mainly be targeting Largemouth Bass with light tackle and artificial lures. Captain David has been fishing since he was a kid, and is well-versed in the best freshwater fishing techniques. He is very knowledgeable about the ecosystem as a whole, and whether your aim is to catch some great table fare or to experience Louisiana’s wildlife from the water, you will come back from the trip enriched with local knowledge.
