We're going deep into The Big Easy's backyard. This is Cajun Country – a lush and mysterious place steeped in myths going back more than two centuries.
South Louisiana's Cajuns are descended from French Canadians who first settled along the bayous in the late 1700s. In Canada, these feisty folk refused to pledge allegiance to the British crown, so they were driven out of Acadia (now Nova Scotia). Fleeing with only what they could carry, their path eventually led to New Orleans. Here they headed to the bayous so they could follow their own beliefs and customs.
Living by fishing and trapping along the bayous, generations of Cajuns preserved their distinctive way of life. Today they're known for their unique French dialect, spicy food, lively festivals, and vibrant music laced with the sound of fiddles and accordions. As you cruise through the bayou's beauty, your crew shares the zest that infuses Cajun culture – and you'll discover why they famously say: "Laissez les bon temps rouler!"
Those good times seem to roll everywhere – even deep in the swamp. Your Cajun crew has lived the bayou life and gives you a taste of it too. Count on your capt'n to spot the wildlife with a trained eye, amaze you with the diversity of swamp life, and share the flavor of Cajun foods and traditions. Who knows, you may roll back home with the secret for perfectly seasoned gumbo.
They weren't always "Cajun"
People of French-Canadian descent living in southern Louisiana were once called "Acadians" when they lived in maritime Canada. After they settled in Louisiana, Acadians came to be called "Cajun" because Americans had a hard time pronouncing their French name. Until the 1950s, the name had some negative connotations. Today, it proudly labels the food, music, and culture that enliven this region.
