The Cypress Swamps

About this tour

Embark on a remarkable journey with us as we delve into the mystic allure of the enchanted cypress swamps for an unparalleled photography expedition. Traversing the sprawling swamplands adorned with ancient bald cypress trees, draped with Spanish moss, we will navigate to the most visually striking locations in the bayou. On mornings shrouded in fog, prepare to uncover a dreamlike landscape, brimming with infinite photography prospects. We will bask in the sublime beauty of filtered light dancing through the tree branches and captivating reflections, as the lake transforms into a vast mirror.

We’ll traverse the concealed gems of both Louisiana and Texas on a comfortably equipped boat, specifically customized to accommodate photography.
