Night Tours:  Take a tour and see the beauty of Caddo Lake at night, see the beauty of a moon light shining through the Cypress draped in Spanish moss or a dark clear night when every star in the sky seems to be glowing above.  Also see and experience the nocturnal creatures that only venture out when the sun goes down, such as Alligators, Raccoon, Beaver, Nutria, Mink, Owls and many others.  We recommend these tours for those that want to experience something really different.

Gator Tours:  Take a tour and see the most grand creature on Caddo Lake, the alligator! Respected by man and beast, the alligator is definitely something to behold in it's natural setting. The gator tours are a 3 hr. or more tour done at night when viewing is much easier. For those that want a little excitement the Gator Tour is a must!
