What you can expect

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.
