Where you'll be
We sail on the South Shore of Lake Pontchartrain, a 630 sq. mile brackish estuary that connects to the Gulf of Mexico, located just 10 miles from the French Quarter. On the lake you may spot a brown pelican, since Lake Pontchartrain is home to a great variety of fish and birds. In the distance, you'll see the Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, which holds the title for the longest bridge over water at 23 miles long.
