Why Take This Photo Tour With Us?
*Not only are we the only ones doing this tour, we’ve been doing it in some form for years.
*This is one of the few under-photographed scenic and wildlife locations left in North America.
*Special boat rides out into the swamp to photograph bird rookeries.
In May, a thousand shades of green assault your eyes and the air is filled with the sweet scent of jasmine and honeysuckle. There are surprisingly few mosquitoes and snakes. However, it is still no place to explore on foot.
We'll be exploring this watery wilderness in small boats especially designed for negotiating the narrow, twisting aisles through the flooded bald cypress and tupelo groves. The boats will be piloted by Cajun guides who grew up in these swamps. Those guides know the most scenic spots, they know where the birds are, and they are not bewildered by the green labyrinth that has most landlubbers utterly lost within a few minutes of leaving the dock.
If you've always wanted to compose images of cypress trees dripping with Spanish moss and the wildlife that makes its home among these trees, this tour is worth looking into.
