Bayou St. John
This bayou kayak tour is just a quick jaunt away from the french quarter, surrounded by fun architecture and a leisurely paddle, it is a great way to learn something about the city and get a little exercise to work off that poboy. It’s not the wildest ride, you will probably see more people than alligators, and you don’t have to commit all afternoon to this activity, but in a town that is barely above water, we think it is best viewed from a kayak. If you believe this is true, we have the tour for you!

If you are looking for a pristine, majestic, and picturesque swamp tour experience, we believe we have the experience for you! Turtles, alligators, heron, and cypress, surround us as we wind our way through the Manchac Swamp. Located a little farther from the quarter and with not as much variety of experiences as our other funky backwoods swamp tour, it won’t fail providing the quintessential views and multitude of beautiful natural sights.
If you want a memory you can’t stop talking about for the next few weeks. If you like funky, dirty, grimy swamps, with eccentric new friends and a bit of wild flare, we have the experience for you. It is a wide variety of experiences; a swamp, a bar, a river, haunted house boats, an old logging area, the old true detective set and it is, our playground! It’s raw fun, you might not want to come back and if you hear banjos, keep paddling! P.S. Please don’t be afraid of mud.
