What you can expect
Embark on an unforgettable kayaking adventure in the peaceful, slow-moving Honey Island Swamp. Led by a seasoned guide, glide through a mysterious aquatic landscape of cypress trees and abandoned houseboats, and keep an eye out for the many animals that call the swamp home.
Travel out of bustling New Orleans and get a feel for the small-town community of Tammany Parish on your way to Honey Island Swamp. Once you arrive, you get a brief orientation before paddling out into the swamp's calm, secluded waters.
Follow your guide past dense groves of cypress trees and bayous populated with wildlife, including alligators, wild boars, and snakes. Bird sightings might include owls, or even majestic bald eagles. As you relish the simultaneous stillness and activity of the environment around you, listen to stories of the area, spy long-forgotten houseboats, and perhaps encounter a few locals as they fish. Enjoy a light workout, and feel refreshed by the tranquility of the swamp before heading back to land.
