Welcome to Delcambre!

We are Shrimp! Whether you want to buy a few pounds of fresh gulf shrimp for a family meal, or whether you want to come out and catch your own. You can do that and a lot more in Delcambre! (pronounced del-come.) Mostly, we want you to experience our hospitality, our culture, and our heritage. After all, even our name says Welcome!


To buy fresh gulf shrimp and other seafood, visit Delcambre Direct Seafood. It provides the means for you to contact a shrimper or fisher directly. There is no easier way to purchase guaranteed fresh shrimp and seafood. If you are a shrimper or fisher and want to sell your catch, sign up for the program here. 

Our Port is the hub of the shrimping industry. We have the farthest inland port in south central Louisiana with direct access to Vermilion Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. That makes us unique in that we can offer easy access to a waterfront environment with associated amenities such as a recreational marina, a seafood market, an improved boat landing with expanded vehicle parking, a fish and observation pier, and, in the future, shops, restaurants, and a boardwalk. Delcambre also has waterfront residential properties for sale. 
For recreational boaters and sportsmen, our newly construct 32 slip Marina is open for long term and overnight rentals. It can accompany parking for recreational vessels along with dockside services and facilities. 
We also have an Industrial Park for industries and businesses that benefit from water access with multi-modal transportation including rail and a four-lane highway to nearby interstate highways. Presently, Shaw Global Energy Services, Inc. employs over over 125 workers in a fabrication plant that builds and distributes structures all over the world. We are looking to expand our industrial and commercial facilities. Land is available now. Contact us if you need water access for your business.
