Tradewinds Marina

TradeWinds is a Louisiana charter fishing destination that boasts over 300 ft. of waterfront with a boat launch that is only a stone's throw away from an open gulf. Our marina is dedicated to full service for all of our patrons offering fuel, groceries, tackle, bait, ice. We offer ethanol-free regular unleaded, and diesel to fit your needs. From our boat launch you are only minutes away from an open gulf.

Enjoy activities such as Cocodrie fishing and fishing for many other kinds of fish inshore or offshore. Whether you're fishing inshore or headed offshore away from our Louisiana marina, TradeWinds offers a great selection of both live and frozen bait, some only when in season. For inshore, there's live and frozen shrimp, croaker, and cocohoe minnow.

And for offshore, there's squid, sardines, pogeys, and herring. Returning from a long day on the water won't be a burden. You are not left without the conveniences that you expect at a Louisiana charter fishing marina. We offer fish cleaning services as well as areas where you can clean your fish yourself. But don't forget the thrill of capturing the moment. The weigh-in board and scale make a great place to record your catch and take classic photos.

Ship Store

A wide variety of groceries and beverages make it easy to stock up for a long day on the water. We have a large selection of beer to fit most everyone’s taste. Several display cases offer gear for the more advanced outfitter. We also have a huge supply of fishing tackle, hardware, and marine supplies.


Our lodge looks out over thousands of acres of Louisiana's marsh land and boasts the most beautiful sunsets of anywhere! And we guarantee you a clean, comfortable place to rest. Each room sleeps 6 and with 500 square feet there is plenty of space to accommodate groups of all sizes. Each bathroom is large and has its own water heater.

All of the rooms are equipped with a table and chairs, micro-wave, and a flat screen TV. Long days on the water are usually followed by festive nights eating and drinking; so, providing a comfortable place to rest is our commitment.

Tradewinds  Restaurant & Bar

Our restaurant offers a comfortable setting with hospitable service for a unique dining experience in the heart of the bayou. Expect down home Cajun cooking with options for fresh seafood and choice steaks. Our laid back atmosphere suits a quick home-made burger or a special occasion with steak and seafood platters.


After dinner, retire to the lounge for a few night caps or "cut loose" and dance the night away with some good ole Cajun music on the juke box. For our locals and tourists, we have plenty of space to host your private party. Just give us a call and we can arrange catering and planned party activities. We also provide catered meals for your company or family special events.
