What you'll do

Come on guest board our Cabbin vessel, a 33 ft Lafitte Skiff, our crab boat. Captain Masson will head us to Andre's nearby crab traps, within Bayou Bienvenue. Upon arrival, Andre will pull up a few crab traps for everyone to observe the process a local crabber goes thru to catch these delicacies, the Blue Crab. Then YOU can try your luck at pulling a trap up like a local... (Some crabbers may have up to 1000 traps) The trap will be baited and you will return the trap to the water. The Captain will then head us to a few areas of interest in Bayou Bienvenue, (the flood wall built across the MRGO, Violet Canal camps, and the Battery Bienvenue just to mention a few). We will proceed back to the Hebert's home where they will describe how the crabs are prepared to eat. This is where the fun begins, you will be taught how to eat and enjoy the great catch caught earlier that day. Come book today...make this year your year of adventures. We have blankets, jackets and hats on the boat, if needed. ****Request your date today
