We had a great time. The... - We had a great time. The staff was ready when we got there and had us launched pretty quickly after offering us an elevated view of the waters. We got our alligator spotting in and spotted a rare eagle. Fun, quiet day in the bayou after a busy fest weekend.

Sunset on the bayou…pure magic! - This was SO much fun! The self-guided kayak tour was great because we could explore the bayou on our own. Didn’t see a lot of wildlife cause of winter but did see so many birds and otters. 😍 It was a great start to 2024!

Peaceful getaway - There are a lot of options offered by this company in terms of different boats/excursions. I opted for the solo tour as I wanted some peace and quiet while going at my own pace. While the solo tour wasn't in the cypress tree part of the swamp, it was still very peaceful navigating throughout the bayou. Saw plenty of birds and a couple gators. The staff is great as well. Ended up hanging around afterwards for a bite to eat. They offered some great tips for seeing parts of the city I otherwise wouldn't have known about.

Loved it! - We loved this part of our New Orleans trip! It was nice to get out of the city for a few hours and take it easy. The guides that met us were very easy going and kind. Very chill spot on the water to explore a bayou on your own. Would definitely recommend!
