Manchac Swamp Kayaking Tour

by New Orleans Kayak Swamp Tours Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per traveler Price is $59

Venture out of New Orleans and into Louisiana's marshy wetlands as you kayak your way through the lush, secluded Manchac Swamp. Paddle among thick cypress groves, tranquil waters, and a range of wildlife with a seasoned guide, who shares tidbits about this unique ecosystem along the way.

Leave the city behind for Louisiana's wild swampland. After a short orientation, take a seat in your kayak, grab your paddle, and follow your guide out into the quiet, water-saturated landscape of Manchac Swamp. Navigate through smooth, glass-like channels, and gaze up at the sinuous cypress trees protruding from the water.

While you soak up the scenery and enjoy the light exercise, learn more about the wetlands habitat that surrounds you, including how the swamp was formed and how it's affected by weather. Discover opportunities to spot gators, birds, raccoons, and more resident critters before heading back to your starting point.

Excellent way to see the bayou. I have done airboat tours but this gives you an opportunity to see things from a new perspective. We saw 3 alligators, owls, a Bald Eagle and other birds. The cypress trees are even more impressive when you can reach out and touch them!
