Recently, our team at Great Delta Tours had the chance to partner with BBC Destination Management Company to host a customized ecotour for the American Sheep Industry (ASI) National Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana. Of course we jumped at the opportunity!

During the tour, we had a special chance to speak with local oyster fisherman Don Robin, who was unloading fresh oysters in Yscloskey, LA – America’s Oyster Capital. This is the type of immersive experience that our tours are known for – so it was a wonderful geek out session where the group loved diving into discussion.

While we were out, we had a special lunch of the freshest, most delicious shrimp poboys from St. Bernard’s “Today’s Ketch” at the Meraux Foundation‘s historic Docville Farm.  While we were on site, ASI presented a check for $1,000 for St. Bernard’s critical coastal restoration efforts!

This tour was truly a memorable, worthwhile experience and we loved creating a special outing with BBC Destination Management just for ASI.
