During the journey, alligators from three feet to fourteen feet in length may be seen. The experience guides on the boat tours explain how alligators, as well as alligator eggs, have been harvested by Cajuns. During the tour, visitors will travel into a duck blind, in which the guide will describe how people hunt ducks in Cajun Country's lakes. In September, guided tours for duck hunts are offered during their hunting season. Guests might also have the chance to view Cajuns fishing for crappie, or Sac-A-lait to them, which means Sack of Milk. These live in the waters of Lake Martin, along with Largemouth Bass, Bream, Catfish, and many more native fish that are fished for sport. After spending some time on one the Champagnes Tours within the groves of cypress trees, visitors will understand why Lake Martin is often call the "Sportsman's Paradise."
