What you'll do

Our Guided tours are approximately 2 hours long and launch from the docks of Champagnes at Lake Martin. Here we have our safety check and load up into our kayaks to begin the addle adventure into the swamp. From here we delve back into the mirky swamp cathedrals, observing the vast utopia of wildlife of the swamp. At our Half way point, we stop and offer our cajun picnic lunch in the kayak of boudin sausage, and a local beverage or juice. We will also have a little live accordion music, humor and story telling, and you have a perfect cajun experience. We follow up our picking with a leisurely paddle back down lafitte bayou and wrap up our 2 hour adventure back on the docks at the launch.
Other things to note
You will be in the swamp and potentially in the heat. So dress accordingly and bring provisions as needed.
