Kayaking is a workout that surrounds you with nature, like chopping down a tree or escaping from a coffin. Look alive with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $40 for a two-hour kayaking tour for two (an $80 value)
  • $75 for a two-hour kayaking tour for four (a $160 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.
