The photo below of a wood duck was shot at Lake Martin on a custom trip.
The bird nesting season is winding down, but we still have spoonbills and Ibis active in the rookery.
If you are traveling for the 4th of July and want to do a swamp tour we have a about 10 boats at Lake Martin that available for your convience, but not guaranteeing you a seat without a reservation. You can call me at 337 298 2630 to make a reservation, or just show up and sort it out which is not a bad idea with the weather complicating things and making it virtually impossible to predict or plan anything outdoors when it is raining morning and afternoon..
So if you don't mind risking a little rain and getting wet and wild with the man who was swamp before Swamp People was cool, I am your man.
I am Marcus de la Houssaye, and I will be the man driving your tour if you come to de la Houssaye's Swamp Tours. I do not hire drivers to run my tours, as I am a one man operation and I can be reached by cell phone at 337 298 2630 if you would like a personal swamp experience with me.
BTW: July and August are alligator nesting season and the momma alligators are on the nest as you can see below...
No matter what or when we will try to accommodate your special interests and make it happen!
