Fresh seafood, rich farms, cattle herds and a growing community help make Delcambre one of the most promising Louisiana towns along the Gulf Coast. Delcambre is the home of the annual Shrimp Festival, making it a major Louisiana tourist attraction. This small seaport along Highway 14 is linked to Lake Peigneur on Jefferson Island, and the Gulf of Mexico by the Delcambre Canal (Bayou Carlin). The harbor provides ready access to the local waterways with a 28-slip marina at North Pier Marina and a four bay launch at Bayou Carlin Cove Boat Landing & Pavilion. You can view local shrimp boats from Bayou Carlin Cove, a popular spot for artists. Or, you can drop a line in the water at the fishing pier.

Local fishermen harvest an abundance of seafood, much of which is served in Iberia Parish restaurants. The Twin Parish Port Commission— the governing authority administering the Port of Delcambre — along with the LSU Ag Center and the Louisiana Sea Grant, have created the Delcambre Direct Seafood marketplace where consumers are able to contact fishermen directly to purchase shrimp and other seafood fresh from the dock. Quality, wild-caught fresh or frozen Louisiana seafood is now available on a seasonal basis. The monthly Delcambre Seafood and Farmers Market held at the pavilion at Bayou Carlin Cove features homemade food, local music and special event attractions.

Discover Delcambre’s dynamic history during your stay. Around 1790, the King of Spain, who then ruled the territory, made three land grants. He gave the Jefferson Island area to Eugene Carlin, the Northern part of the Delcambre community to Charles Prevoux, and the Southern part, as well as the land where the town stands today, to Jean Petit. Although the grant holders were Frenchmen, the King of Spain insisted that the land be settled by Spaniards. The Delcambre land grants were rather idle until the migration of the Acadians from Nova Scotia.
