The Twin Parish Port District (“the Port”) is the governing authority administering the Port of Delcambre. Together with the Town of Delcambre and many other partners, the Port is implementing a vision for Delcambre’s future, a vision that seeks to revitalize the seafood industry devastated by two hurricanes, redevelop the Delcambre waterfront, and expand its industrial park.

There is presently one public boat launch located within the Town. The Port also owns 25 acres south of Delcambre on the Delcambre Canal and is the site of its industrial facilities. The Port also has memoranda of understanding from surrounding landowners to purchase 25 acres for expansion of its industrial park.
