What you'll do
Having lived in New Orleans the last 6 years I can provide guest with a wealth of knowledge not only about the wetlands surrounding the Nola but also the best local restaurants, music venues, and hangouts. I can tell you where to go and where not to go and most importantly, how to have fun and be safe. If you are searching for a gorgeous, natural and picturesque kayak swamp tour – this is your tour! See dense cypress forest, expansive wetlands, and an array of wildlife surrounding you as you paddle on waters that are ideal for beginners and adventure seekers alike. Total tour time from getting picked up in the French Quarter, Wetlands Kayak Tour, to getting dropped back of in the quarter is about 5 hours total. The drive takes about 45 minutes each way, we take a bathroom break right before and right after the tour as well. Before you head out on tour you are outfitted with all proper equipment and given a paddle lesson. We will meet at Nola Cantina at 10:15am. If you are running behind please call or text to let us know Important: PLEASE TXT/CALL ME TO discuss your ability and other time availabilities/weather PRIOR TO BOOKING (504)571-9975.
New Orleans Kayak Swamp Tours' passion has always been for the great outdoors (check out our website and TripAdvisor page!). Preservation, conservation, and education are our main focuses when guiding you through Louisiana's Most Endangered Natural Resource, the Wetlands. My love of the outdoors began at summer camp. I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to lead people on adventure trips which I have been doing professionally for the last 6 years here in Louisiana.
