The Captain's Table

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…

What a wonderful Fall we are having! The temperatures have fluctuated but nothing too far in either direction. Along with the cold fronts comes the mist on the water in the early morning it makes the lake even more mysterious. We have ridden passengers from all over the world recently and everyone has been very respectful regarding safety. As the leaves fall they expose the Spanish Moss in all it’s glory, the lake is beautiful in all seasons. Thanksgiving will soon be here and we hope you all stay safe. We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day but we will be open the Friday, Saturday and Sunday following. We will be open throughout the Winter, weather permitting, at the weekends so come and see us for a tour. We have blankets on the boat for your extra comfort during the…

We are experiencing our first cold snap of the fall. The trees are starting to turn their array of colors although the Cypress Trees in Carter’s Lake, where we take you, have had their foliage eaten by the fall web-worm. It happens approximately every 7 years and they strip the trees quite fast. Therefore, the…

What a beautiful weekend. The weather has not been this good since Spring. Thank you to the many people who rode with us this weekend. We are finally back in Carters Lake after an infestation of Fall Webworms and a fish kill due to dissolved oxygen. The rains this week from storm Beta should clean it all out. Now the weather has changed we would love to have you tour with us. We are in the process of becoming Better Business Bureau accredited and should have our logo up and running in the next 2 weeks.

I mentioned the unusual year we have had so far and now we are experiencing a rare occurrence in the area of the lake we usually take our tours. After the last rain we had a lot of run-off into Carters Lake and Carters Chute, there is also an abundance of Fall Webworms in that…

We had a great Labor Day weekend, thank you to all who rode with us and apologies to those who arrived to find no tours available. Due to the ability of booking on the internet everything booked up very fast. The weather seems to be breaking a little and giving some relief from the intense heat. The Children are back to school and fall will be upon us before we know it. Caddo has a moth that feeds on the leaves of the Cypress Trees and this year they have arrived in abundance! They hang over the water on a web and are a bit of a nuisance but because they feed on the foliage of the Cypress the trees appear dead or as though they have shed their leaves as in fall. This means that the fall colors will…

What an unusual year. The high amount of rainfall has meant that we have been able to access our favorite area all Summer. It is breathtaking back there. I hope the picture reminds those who have visited us of what they have seen and those yet to visit what they have to look forward to….

We hope you are all staying safe and healthy. Being out doors is the best thing you can do right now. We have been very busy with people getting out of the cities and enjoying a nice relaxing tour. We recommend booking on line to ensure your seating as the tours are filling very fast. We are also enjoying a nice break in the heat so it is perfect for a boat ride. You will learn about the history of the area and information on the plants and animals that are indigenous to this lake. Due to the prolific rain we have had everywhere is lusciously green and beautiful. We look forward to seeing you and, of course, don’t forget the camera and binoculars.
