Kayak the Bayou St. John with a Guide

Bayou St. John is the oldest neighborhood in New Orleans and one of the most beautiful natural settings in the city. Native Americans once settled on its banks and centuries later, the famous Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, held ceremonies here that attracted thousands of devotees. For French colonists, the bayou served as an early settlement and an indispensable trade route. It’s no exaggeration to say that the city wouldn’t exist had it not been for Bayou St. John.

On this tour, you’ll leisurely paddle past the neighborhood’s historic homes and landmarks, as well as the magnificent City Park, learning the rich history of the bayou and the city to which it gave birth. In a city that’s barely above water, there’s no better way to see it and discover its past than from a kayak.
