Basin Landing & Marina invites you to experience the journey of a lifetime in the heart of the Atchafalaya Basin - the Henderson Swamp. Thrill-seekers, photographers, and travelers passing through are welcome to sneak a glimpse of Southern Louisiana alongside one of our friendly and experienced tour guides.

Most visitors to the area simply drive over the Atchafalaya Basin on I-10 and go home thinking they’ve seen all there is to see. But we know that the real show begins when you leave our docks on an Airboat Swamp tour, which takes you on an unforgettable ride through mossy cypress forests, an original home of the Cajun people and, of course, the natural habitat of the Louisiana Alligator.

Guided Swamp Tours & More

Seeing the pristine beauty of the Atchafalaya Basin, whose name comes from the Choctaw word for “long river,” is easier than you think.  Basin Landing & Marina is located just minutes from Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, and less than an hour from Baton Rouge. We are easily accessible from wherever you are traveling from.

Each tour we guide takes place on a sturdy airboat with one of our experienced captains. Either Captain Tucker Friedman or Captain Craig Latiolais will take you and your guests along the hidden paths of the Atchafalaya Basin, where you will have the opportunity to take pictures and witness some of the swamp’s natural wildlife. When you return, you can enjoy a drink at Turtle’s Bar.
