You are here to see nature, you are here to track sights and sounds of those animals that fly, swim, slither, and frolic. This is the tour where we saunter through the swamp with a peaceful paddle stroke. If you don’t see animals on this tour, it is time to get your vision checked.

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.

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 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.
