AN UNFORGETTABLE EXPERIENCE AWAITS!
MEET CAPTAIN GEORGE
Captain George C. Allnet, IV is a lifetime resident of St. Bernard Parish. He has been fishing, trawling and crabbing in the local waters throughout his life. He began working as a deckhand on Mississippi River tugboats at the age of 17, and by the time he was 20 years old, he became a licensed Captain, driving along the Intercoastal Waterway, Mississippi River and Mississippi Sound. A few years after Hurricane Katrina, Captain George began working as a swamp tour guide and realized his true passion! He enjoys meeting and interacting with new people and showing visitors the local culture. This inspired him to establish a tour boat company in his hometown of Violet, Louisiana, where he can tell personal stories as he takes visitors through the waters on which he grew up. Come have some fun on a tour with Captain George and enjoy an authentic, informative experience!
