Description

An incredibly unique experience, described by Samantha in her own words:


My husband, Captain George C. Allnet, IV, and I own and operate the company. We were both raised in St. Bernard Parish, in the immediate area where we dock. George is also a commercial crab fisherman and operates his crab boat two - three days per week. Our passengers who aren't driving themselves to the tour get to us via uber or lyft, and we provide complimentary return transportation within 15 miles of our location. Our tour is authentic, unpolished, and very personal. George takes his passengers through several waterways (driving slowly at times and quickly at others), on which he grew up working and playing, and describes what everyone is seeing along the way, speaking throughout almost the entire tour. His tour is not scripted, and he speaks from personal knowledge and experience. Our personal home on the bayou serves as a restroom stop about halfway through the tour. He will show you homes on the bayou, wildlife (including alligators), the Louisiana Flood Wall, fishing boats, etc., and may even pull up a crab trap for everyone to see.
We dock at our Tavern, where our passengers can arrive prior to the tour for a bite to eat from our bar menu, for drinks prior to the tour, for drinks to take on the tour and of course the use the restroom prior to loading the boat. Our bar menu consists of boiled crabs (caught by George, and are usually available), crab cakes (made with crab meat from George's catch), spinach and artichoke dip (with the option to add crab meat obtained from George's catch), chicken and andouille gumbo over rice, and red beans and rice
