Get hands-on experience catching and learning all about Louisiana’s favorite freshwater crustaceans, the crawfish. You and your group will take a rustic wagon ride through Stella's beautiful 1,500 acres as you head back to the diverse habitat that is home to much of Louisiana’s most recognized wildlife. Upon reaching the crawfish ponds, two by two, take turns on our specially designed crawfishing boats to experience one of the oldest Louisiana traditions.
Guests will have the opportunity to lift the traps from the water, collect the crawfish, bait and replace them in the pond. Or watch as the fisherman demonstrate. While you crawfish, the remainder of the group will be set up under the shady oak trees that line the ponds with a delicious boil of Stella’s own crawfish. Our crawfish have a stellar reputation of always being red, spicy, big and delicious! A standard boil includes crawfish, corn, and potatoes as well as your water and soft drinks. Enjoy local cuisine at its freshest in the very spot it is caught.
