The Story of Stan’s Airboat and Marsh Excavator Service

We’ve created and patented custom tools and methods that are now integrated into the daily operations of our partners and have been adopted by the industry everywhere marsh excavators and airboat transportation services are needed. Stan’s can truly handle anything you throw our way!
We work with project managers and maintenance supervisors for companies large and small. We also work with oilfield services and communications companies, as well as help surveying companies and government contractors.
Stan’s Airboat and Marsh Excavator Service was founded in 1994 by Lake Charles, Louisiana native Stanley Caldarera.
The business originated strictly as a working airboat service taking care of survey and pipeline companies. Although Stan’s didn’t do airboat tours (and still doesn’t), one the big areas of our business in those early days was harvesting alligator eggs for the local alligator farmers.
In 2005, Stan purchases his first Wilson Mini Marsh excavator. His work consisted of digging hunting trails and doing reclamation work on abandoned oil well sites. Business was busy enough to add a second and larger marsh buggy.
In 2005, following the destruction that Hurricane Rita brought to the area, Stan’s buys its third marsh excavator.
In 2007, Stanley sells Stan’s Airboat and Marsh Excavator Service to Tommy and Liz Todd. A long time farmer and a contractor of metal structures (as well as an avid hunter and fisherman), Tommy knew the business would be a perfect fit for his personality.
In April of 2008, his wife Liz joins the team.
