Swamp Kayak Tours

Explore the magical Maurepas Swamp on a guided kayak tour that you will never forget.  Just 40 minutes from New Orleans, LA, this wildlife refuge offers the best wildlife viewing in the area.   Throughout the swamp, your guide will narrate and educate you about your surroundings, as well as the current preservation and conservation of Louisiana’s endangered wetland ecosystem.

Wildlife sightings depend on the season. We do not feed the wildlife on our trips .  However we do see a variety of animals; egrets, herons, eagles, alligators, turtles, and more.
