Fun and inexpensive way to do something semi-active on the bayou. The hosts were extremely friendly and accommodating. Definitely a fun way to experience a unique natural setting in the area.

Very pleasant experience. We were running late and the company called to make sure all was well and that we didn't get lost. Despite being late, she allowed us to take the three hours we paid for! She offered great places to stop and told us all about the area. Very friendly. We didn't get to see any gators, but that's okay, I'm sure they saw us. We only ended up going kayaking for about 2 hours, wish we had used the whole time. Was imagining more of a swampy up close and personal type kayak. It was in a wide open area that was originally meant for a pipeline I believe.

What You'll Get

When you arrive we will have your rental boat, life preservers, paddles, and any other rental items you have arranged waiting at our boat launch. After a brief safety discussion and paddling instruction, you will make a short trip along Bayou Barataria where you can see the local fishing boats and the famous Fleming Burial Grounds along the waterway.  

As you enter the Jean Lafitte National HIstorical Park and Preserve Barataria Preserve Unit, the water becomes calmer and you choose your own pace as you explore. You have your choice of direction from there but we recommend traveling into Kenta Canal, where you will find coves and inlets.  These wetlands and bays offer many unique natural treasures to explore.    

Watch for the alligators and the many other local wildlife that usually are seen along this tour. After about 2 hours, we recommend that you begin your return to our launch. The ever-changing bayou offers a new experience each time you pass an area so keep your eyes open on your return as well!  

Your local owner and operator, DJ, will be waiting to assist you as you return to our launch and can give lots of advise on our area and tour and travel opportunities.

This tour does not include transportation. We recommend using a private transport service to enjoy the landscape as you leave the noise of the city and enter the realm of the bayou and it's moss-ladened cypress and oak trees and wild-life
