Bourgeois Fishing Charters at the Cajun Vista Inn is only 25 minutes from downtown New Orleans and the French Quarter. Our Cajun Vista Inn and our remote Cajun Chalet bring a delve into the world of true “bayou” living. The Cajun Vista Inn is beautifully furnished with a Southern Louisiana Plantation Style that accommodates all corporate business as well as a small family. Most important, we have the absolute best escapes & adventures in New Orleans, LA. We offer the only game in town featuring our newest and most exhilarating fishing adventures with our Seaplanes. Arrive on the bayou/swamp of Lafitte, LA to take a Guided Seaplane Adventure Trip to the fishing grounds of big specks and redfish on Chandelier & Gosher Islands of the Louisiana Gulf Coast. Most popular, we offer 7 hours of spin and fly-fishing in our professional Ranger & Champion Bay Boats that accommodate up to 4 guests per boat, guided by the best fishing Captains on the water. Our other charter adventures include Bow Fishing, Cast & Blast, Swamp Tours and Crab Excursions.

2 days fishing again with Captn Theophile and Captn Dave. One by seaplane ou to the Chandeleur Islands, and one by boat into the bayou. Limited on reds the first day and trout the second. Planning my next trip now for the experience alone. Great people who enjoy their guests and what they do. Kudos to the whole team.

We had the pleasure of fishing with Bourgeois Charters for my Father-in-law's 70th birthday. It was a fantastic time, and the Bourgeois crew went out of their way to make our trip memorable. On our first day of fishing we seaplaned out to the flats and spent the day stalking trout. On the second, we took a flats boat into... More

It was the first time any of our group had been fishing in the New Orleans. Captain Wayne was terrific.... he worked very hard to put us on a ton of fish. The whole trip was great.

My son and I decide, instead of presents to each other this year, we were going to create some lasting memories. We decided to book a 2 day charter with Theofile and we were not disappointed. From the accomodations to the food to the great job that captain T Wayne did finding fish for us, it definitely created memories that... More

I enjoyed a terrific trip from 8/14-16 with Bourgeois Fishing Charters. We stayed at the Chalet and the Cajun food was terrific...the bread pudding was excellent. The fishing was good but we had to work hard to get them because of the weather. We were constantly moving until we got on the fish which were bull redfish! They are the... More

My husband and I just got back from our 17th trip with Bourgeois Fishing Charters. It is the best fishing trip we have been on and we have been to Alaska, the Amazon, Costa Rica and many others and they were very good but...this is by far the most fun. It is such an easy trip, a flight to New... More

Captain Wayne at Bourgeois charters was amazing! He really worked hard to put us on the fish and did just that, not to mention the history of swamps and different fisheries that are available. I highly recommend these people everything is 5 star 1st class with these people!
