Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.
- $40 for a two-hour kayaking tour for two (an $80 value)
Each two-hour tour explores the contrasting history, wildlife, and natural beauty of the Faubourg St. John and Park Island neighborhoods. Tours paddle along at a comfortable pace, and passengers can bring their own snacks or adult beverages.
Traveled by the city's Native American inhabitants and earliest explorers, Bayou St. John was a central New Orleans travel hub for generations. Kayak-iti-Yat owners Sara and Sonny love to take guests paddling through this historic waterway, pointing out the architecture, history, and idiosyncrasies of the accompanying neighborhood. Passengers glide along in Jackson Regal kayaks with ergonomically-designed seats and adjustable foot holds, moving past City Park and its centuries-old live oak trees, as well as historic Spanish Custom House and the Fair Grounds Race course. Trips putter along at a calm, leisurely pace, giving guests plenty of time to take in trees draped in Spanish moss or blow raspberries on the bellies of passing pelicans.

“My tour with Kayak-iti-Yat was really great--the Nola-born guide was very knowledgable and open to questions, and clearly knows the area and wildlife like the back of his hand. It was a unique experience--there isn't any other place that's offering similar kayaking tours in New Orleans. I highly recommend this group for locals (like myself) as well as for out-of-town visitors. I had fairly high expectations of the tour before going on it, but my expectations were definitely exceeded. Learned a lot, beautiful, and very, very fun.”
