Explore the Wonders of Nature on the Atchafalaya

Awaken the adventurous spirit inside of you on a boat tour of some of the most beautiful swamp lands in Louisiana. The Atchafalaya Experience expeditions are designed to accommodate the photographer, birders, and lovers of nature who would appreciate seeing Louisiana's answer to the Grand Canyon, "the Atchafalaya" [uh-chaf-uh-lahy-uh]. Our tour operators would love to show you the beauty of our gorgeous swamp and teach you about the importance of our vast wetlands. Depending on the season and water levels, there are six separate areas which can be explored. Each trek into the bayou is never the same.

About Us

Explore the diverse ecosystem of the Atchafalaya in Louisiana with a father-son team that knows the swamplands and its wildlife quite well. Coerte A. Voorhies, Jr. is a consulting geologist (semi-retired) who has extensive knowledge of the geology, history, geography, and various ethnic cultures of South Louisiana. Kim B. Voorhies is a retired service member who has hunted and fished in the marshes and swamps of South Louisiana, assimilating the experience necessary to conduct trips into this wilderness.

Since 1992, our expeditions have been featured on TV networks, in newspapers, and in travel magazines from around the world. Vacations Magazine rates the Atchafalaya Experience as 1 of the top 10 adventures in North America. We recommend watching an episode of Tracks Across America with Billy Connolly on ITV that featured our tour.

Mission Statement: We are here to share our knowledge of the attraction known as Louisiana's Grand Canyon.
