The small community of Delcambre, Louisiana, in the heart of Cajun Country, is now accepting overnight and multi-day stays for recreational boaters traveling the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). Located in south central Louisiana, Delcambre is only six miles north of mile marker 145 on the GIWW. The new Port of Delcambre’s North Pier Marina opened in March 2012. North Pier Marina provides an excellent new location in a safe haven, and offers cruisers comfort, security, and amenities that include power from specialist marine electrical engineers, water, WiFi, trash service, transportation to nearby points of interest, and free delivery of groceries to their boats. Services such as fuel, ice, mechanics, and marine hardware stores are nearby. North Pier Marina offers transient slips for both large and small boats (please see the details at www.portofdelcambre.com/marina-info).
The North Pier Marina is one of several projects in the Twin Parish Port District’s plans to promote Delcambre as a both commerce center and a waterfront center for tourism. The first project, Delcambre Direct Seafood (www.delcambredirectseafood.com), has been very successful in helping local shrimpers make the world famous sweet white shrimp of this area available for sale right off their shrimp boats. The boat landing for the shrimpers is only a five-minute walk from North Pier Marina.
Delcambre is near both Avery Island, home of Tabasco (www.tabasco.com/avery-island), and Rip Van Winkle Gardens on beautiful Jefferson Island (www.Ripvanwinklegardens.com). It is also only minutes from historic Abbeville, New Iberia, and Lafayette, Louisiana. Transportation to these venues can be scheduled with the Marina.
