Captain T. Tom was born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and raised between St. Bernard and Pointe-aux-Chenes (he’s from the Houma Nation tribe). He moved around from season to season and bayou to bayou, following the shrimping and fishing that provided for his family and since 1987, he’s been a passionate teacher of his Cajun heritage. His modesty and deep respect for nature is present in his tours and he’s so entertaining, swamp life and all it entails comes to life on his tours across the Manchac Swamp. Captain T. Tom is our French-speaking captain and he speaks Cajun French as well as other French dialects.
