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.

What is the cost for a charter trip to wade fish the Chandeleurs in October for party of 2 or 4, including lodging, etc.? I would like to know the cost of both using a boat and for the seaplane trips? Thanks. James

James For us it was 1500 per person, 3 nights lodging and food. Plane to the island to fish one day and the next on a boat fishing. They supply all the gear, just bring clothes. Awesome adventure and WORTH EVERY DIME!!!
