Your Friendly Swamp Tour Guides
Tucker Friedman has been making a way of life on the Bayou since he was a kid. One of his first jobs was to help local fishermen 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.
Soon after purchasing Basin Landing, Tucker became a full-time houseboat resident. When he isn't working at the marina, he enjoys exploring the bayou, especially during fishing or duck season. Since becoming a licensed Captain, he has logged hundreds of hours on the airboats, giving visitors a glimpse of the Atchafalaya Basin (or as he calls it, his backyard). Tucker speaks both English and Cajun French.
Craig Latiolais, also known as "Bugsy", is a highly experienced airboat operator with over 30 years of experience. A lifelong citizen of Henderson, LA, his work has taken him throughout the U.S., driving boats for various oilfield and seismic companies. Besides English, Craig also speaks Cajun French as a second language.
Since retiring from the travels of oilfield life, he enjoys spending his time in the swamp and showing guests around the place where he grew up.
