The Captain's Table

Our wonderful neighbor, Lonnie Lund, followed the boat, with his drone, on its way to the swamp. We had a full load and a good time was had by all. The Dog Star is over us and bringing the dog days of Summer, so the coolest place to be is on the water. Come and…

Here’s hoping you all had a wonderful 4th of July. We were very busy and met lots of lovely people. It never ceases to amaze me how people find our little area of East Texas, they come from all over the world. Thank you Google and Social Media. I would like to stress to anyone…

We would like to wish everyone a very happy 4th of July. Let us all enjoy being out in the fresh air, enjoying nature. It is hot of course, being July in Texas, but we do have a cover over the boat and we have umbrellas for extra protection from the Sun. We only have a couple of spots left for Saturday, July 3rd and a few for July 4th. We do, however, have seats left for Friday. We will be closed on Monday July 5th. Come and enjoy a very relaxing tour while listening to the history of the lake and the area. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars. Come and see why we love our jobs.

We hope you all had a good Memorial Weekend. We had a busy time and met lots of wonderful people, the weather behaved too. We had a gator swimming up and down the river, which excited everyone eating on the porch at Big Pines Lodge. The high water has them dislodged from their usual hide-outs….

We have had a lot of rain recently and the river is about 3′ above pool. With more rain in the forecast, this may mean we have low level flooding by next weekend. It will not affect us as we board from a floating dock which rises with the water. Next weekend is filling up…

What a beautiful weekend after Friday’s rain and storms. Spring and fall we are always subject to the bad weather, but we always try and stay ahead of the game so you don’t make a long journey only to be told the tours are cancelled. We have had full tours this weekend and enjoyed meeting lots of wonderful people. Next weekend is booking up too, so make your reservation on line, or call me, which ever suits you best. All the trees are green now and the critters are stirring as they look for their partners. We can never guarantee what you will see, as nature is very unpredictable, but we can assure you that you will not be disappointed with the breathtaking scenery.

Here comes spring and I know you are all ready for some warm weather. Spring break was busy and we enjoyed meeting lots of people from all over the country. A lot of people from Minnesota and Wisconsin getting away from that snow up there. It is always fun meeting people from different states and…

Spring is springing into life! After such a cold winter it is so good have warm days. Spring Break is here and we have been very busy. More and more people are booking on line so I definitely recommend booking well in advance if possible. Soon the critters will be moving as mating season approaches….

We sincerely hope you all survived the bad weather without too much of a problem. We had to shut down for two weeks but are now up and running again. We are forecast some storms all weekend but it is going to be warm. We can often just wait until the storm passes through then…

A very Happy New Year to all! Let’s hope that 2021 is a lot kinder than 2020 was. Winter is truly upon us with all her fury. Fortunately, she has allowed us decent weekends so we are still able to show you this wonderous lake. I do suggest that you dress warm, we have blankets…

Here comes winter! The Spanish moss is beautiful as it sways in the breeze, lit up by the sun. Winter is still beautiful on Caddo. Come for a relaxing boat tour away from the problems of being in the City. We have blankets for your comfort but, please, wear warm clothing, it is always a little colder on the water. On behalf of all of us at Captain Ron’s Swamp Tours we would like to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy and prosperous 2021. We hope to be seeing you. Don’t forget those binoculars and the camera.

We trust you all had a lovely, if quiet, Thanksgiving. Christmas is  now around the corner and we hope everyone has a safe and healthy Xmas season. We will be closed Christmas Day but will be open the following day and Sunday, the same will stand for New Years Day. The weather is unpredictable at this time of year but, as long as it isn’t icy or too wet, we will still be touring Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10am, 12pm, 2pm and 4pm. Blankets are provided for your comfort during the tour. The Spanish Moss is wonderful to photograph while there are no leaves on the trees. We do suggest you make a reservation to ensure you are able to tour on the day and at the time you want. You can book on line or call and leave…
