Swamp Tours in Henderson, Louisiana
Atchafalaya Basin Landing & Marina in Henderson, Louisiana, would like to show you the natural beauty and pristine surroundings that we are lucky enough to call home!! Located just minutes from Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, and less than an hour from Baton Rouge, we are easily accessible wherever you are!
Do you think you've seen all there is to see of the Atchafalaya Basin by driving over it on I-10? Think again! Once you leave on one of our unforgettable airboat tours, you will be brought into the depths of the Basin, places not accessible by any other type of boat.
View the beauty of the moss-filled cypress forest, the primitive habitat of wild alligators and a glimpse into the life Cajuns have led for hundreds of years.
Whether you are interested in photography or a scenic adventure, your trip to South Louisiana would not be complete without one of our unique tours.

Tours are normally scheduled at 9am, 11am, 1pm, or 3pm (may vary depending on season). Tours last between 1hr 15 min. to 1hr. 30 minutes and are weather permitting. Call for pricing and reservations.
MEET YOUR CAPTAINS
Tucker has been making a way of life on the Bayou since he was a kid. One of his first jobs was to help people ramp their boats at a nearby Landing here on the Levee. He purchased Basin Landing in 1999 and has feverishly worked to expand it to what it is today. Becoming a full time houseboat resident soon after purchase, he can often be found out in the bayou during fishing or duck season when not dealing with the constant upkeep that the marina demands. Since becoming a licensed Captain, he has logged hundreds of hours on the Airboats showing people from around the world the Atchafalaya Basin (or as he calls it, his backyard). Tucker speaks Cajun French as well as English and loves the excitement of being a guide and Captain.
Better known as Captain Kirk, Mr. Guidry has been a licensed boat Captain for many years (he won't allow us to say how many.) Though he has been a lifelong citizen of Henderson, LA, his work has afforded him many travels from Venezuela and Brazil to the North Sea. Along the way he became fluent in French, Spanish, Portuguese, as well as English. Once returning to the states, he spent nearly 25 years as a Riverboat Captain. Now he spends his spare time in the swamp, showing people from around the world his hometown. One of our airboats has even been named after him, the "Cajun Enterprise". His jovial personality combined with his knack of telling jokes makes Captain Kirk a masterful tour guide.
