The best tour guides are not chauffeurs who tell amusing stories. They are unimpeachable scholars and advocates who, through education, infect their charges with some of their own passion. And so it is for Captain Wendy, a truly gifted woman who knows the bayou, the tremendous value Louisiana wetlands provide to our entire country and how close these treasures are to extinction.Doc - Jenkintown, PA

The best tour guides are not chauffeurs who tell amusing stories. They are unimpeachable scholars and advocates who, through education, infect their charges with some of their own passion. And so it is for Captain Wendy, a truly gifted woman who knows the bayou, the tremendous value Louisiana wetlands provide to our entire country and how close these treasures are to extinction. A tour with her is not an alligator photo-op (although you get that too). You begin with a presentation that defines the vocabulary (do you know the difference between a swamp and a marsh…a bayou and a canal), the fragility of salt and fresh water life and how the Wetlands are threatened by man-made indifference. The tour is conducted from her shallow draft boat in comfort with narrative that illuminates and educates. The 3-4 hours fly but no so fast that you miss the compelling nature of the trip and its narrator. DO.NOT.MISS! (about an hour outside of New Orleans)

I took part with three other women in a Bayou Woman Adventure. What a blast! We went crabbing, cooked our catch, then feasted! We also had the opportunity to dine out in nearby Houma to enjoy more seafood. Perhaps my favorite part of the weekend was spending time on the rear deck in great conversation making new friends!

Three generations (Grammy, Mom, Granddaughter) embarked on a Bayou Woman Adventure in early August along with our other companion (Daughter, Sister, Aunt). We enjoyed a swamp tour, catching crab the old-fashioned way with a string (which seemed to work better than the trap), great bayou cooking, a back road drive to visit a quaint old general store, dinner at great local restaurant, and some awesome sunsets. I also don’t think it would be a bayou trip without the spotting of the almighty alligator, of which we saw one very large one and a small one that seemed to try to figure out why we were in its territory. I also chatted it up with the famous Bayou Fabio at the local store. Our trip was the first for us all as a group and we will definitely be doing this for years to come. Thanks, Bayou Woman!

This adventure was a great stress reliever! And I work for the State of Texas, so I know stress, and this trip was terrific. Capt. Wendy is an excellent tour guide. She can name every bird, fish, plant. Her knowledge of the bayous is remarkable, informative and exciting. The lesson on catching crabs with traps and string was so much fun, and her way of teaching is infectious. We couldn’t get enough. My only child and I met at Camp Dularge, and we did this together. I plan to make this an annual event with her, Capt. Wendy, and good friends. (they know who they are!)

In June 2011, my family and I loaded up a van and truck and headed from Northeast Oklahoma down to the Bayou to visit Captain Wendy. Having only “met” Wendy through her blog, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had convinced the whole group that we were going to have fun or die trying. Little did I know that almost a year later, we would all be dying to go back! From the minute we got out of our cars, Wendy had us involved in an activity and was educating us on bayou life. We were hooked. Our adventure involved fishing, crabbing, eco- touring, tasting local cuisine, driving around and checking out local scenery, a trip to New Orleans and making friends that will last a lifetime. The bayou is in our hearts forever. Our “family” consisted of my husband, myself, his cousin and wife, their two-year-old son, our 13-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter. Every one of us had a blast, there wasn’t one thing that the whole group couldn’t participate in and enjoy. The little guy, the big kids and even us bigger kids enjoyed every gator sighting, fish that nibbled, fish that WE nibbled, and hook that was baited. We came to bayou as strangers and left as family.

Wendy and I met on a Paddle Bayou Lafourche trip in 2004. I was struck with her passion for Louisiana wetlands. We quickly became friends. She visited my elementary classroom to read her book to my class. I have been on several private tours with her. She knows where all the local wildlife can be found. I am a birder and will never forget one time out with her when we had some excellent sightings up close and personal. It was a memorable trip I’ll never forget. Wendy is an uplifting spirit. She never fails to inspire me with her passion for Louisiana, its wetlands and its people.
